Here, Biden was not saying that, if he had his druthers, nothing significant would change in the lives of ordinary Americans — or that nothing whatsoever would change about his audience’s tax liabilities — but rather, that inequality has reached such exceptional levels, he could redistribute significant income from the rich to the poor without putting a dent in the former’s living standards. To the contrary, what mild reform cost the wealthy in taxes it would more than make up for in “revolution” insurance. And it is true that America can remain a paradise for plutocrats while guaranteeing health care, housing, and a living wage for its poor. Other capitalist democracies have already done this. There are still billionaires in Sweden. … [Read more...] about Biden 2020: Change That Wall Street Liberals Can Believe In?

Kessler doesn’t have to say much to convince me. I somehow recently became a recipient of Trump campaign text messages, and they offer a steady diet of terroristic threats about the rioters and looters Biden and his Democrats are sending my way.

Later, in another bizarre exchange, Woodward urges Trump to display a tad more empathy toward racial justice protesters. (The president, true to form, has been exulting in his ability "to send in the military" to deal with the protesters, whom he describes, variously, as "these poor radical lefts" and as "arsonists . . . thugs . . . anarchists" and "very bad people.") Woodward, in response, attempts to explain "White privilege" to an incredulous Trump. "Do you have any sense that that privilege has isolated [you]?" the reporter asks. "And that we [White, privileged people] have to work our way out of it to understand the anger and the pain, particularly, Black people feel?" … [Read more...] about Book World: Woodward’s ‘Rage’ is a damning account of Trump’s cowering sycophants and enablers
Biden’s environmental agenda would, if enacted, be the most sweeping set of reforms in U.S. history. He has pledged to reenter the Paris climate agreement, promised a series of executive actions that would reverse Trump’s deregulation initiatives, and proposed transitioning the U.S. to a “100 percent clean energy economy and reaches net-zero emissions no later than 2050.” He has called for trillions of dollars to be invested in items like climate-conscious infrastructure projects and energy grid overhauls. And during his convention, he pointed to climate change as one of the four existential crises confronting the country—the other three being COVID, the economy, and racial injustice. … [Read more...] about The Founders of The Environmental Movement Have a Message: Don’t Vote For The Green Party
