If all you have is a hammer, everything can look like a nail.
If, like Trump, you cut everything but the military, the land can become a boarded-up free-fall economy.
If revolving doors replace checks and balances and the super-rich and big corporations shift their profits to tax havens, inequality explodes, work becomes precarious and fear, insecurity, and indifference become universal instead of freedom, justice, mercy and shared responsibility.
The financial markets became independent and took funds from the real economy. The media and politics have long been wedded in the US.
Subjects like tax havens, the tax avoidance industry, stock buybacks, insider trading, micro-second betting, lobbyists replacing lawmakers, the Republican party morphing into the Trump party, the economically strong becoming the politically strong, Trump blaming China, Obama, Hilary, fake news, Democrats and Obama judges, emoluments violations, scapegoating reminiscent of Hitler, slandering free opinion and dissent calling to mind the Orwellian newspeak, denouncing all countries as “cheaters,” degrading Germany as “Russia’s puppet,” mocking separation of powers and checks and balances, $8 trillion in tax heists, attacks on the poor, seniors, disabled, students and children, International law, the UN Charter, the International Criminal Court, the UN Human Rights council, nuclear arms agreements, and the Paris Climate agreement are all taboo subjects for corporate media.
The state should serve the public interest and remedy market failures and help those under the wheel and not serve special and private interests turning our beloved country into an unfeeling plutocracy.
The vicious, incompetent authoritarian is a clear and present danger to language, democracy, and a peaceful and more egalitarian society.
