"The Shape of Things to Come"
Look most of the stuff against Hillary is the contrived bullshit the far right has been slinging on her for decades. She's done no worse than every other politician out there...actually less. Yeah she takes big money from the who's who of enemies of the people...but who don't.
Besides Bernie, and we see where that got him. The fix was in from day one. That's politics. That's really all I'm saying.
It's just politics.
No outsider is ever getting anywhere till there's an actual revolution...and that ain't happening in the lifetimes of anyone alive now. Bernie's revolution will fade away like Occupy did, and soon be the butt of jokes then forgotten.
There will be very slow reforms.
Just enough to keep the mob home eating pizza, and playing computer games, and getting stoned, and drunk. Just enough to make it look like the middle class is sort of getting a break...but not really.
Maybe one or two big things like student debt reduction or even forgiveness. That, and perhaps some infrastructure repairs, and public works to spread some jobs around for a few years,...then end.
Yeah that may happen..or not.
However it's business as usual till it gets so bad there's a violent insurgency. This because of poisoned water tables poor harvests from climate change failed medical infrastructure local grossly corrupt ineffective authorities, and basic abandonment by the central government.
This country becomes a western version of Iraq via asymmetrical warfare. The rich elites, and their armies against assorted crazed right, and left militias of the dispossessed, and non-aligned violent maniacs that'll kill anything moving like in Syria.
This is what the rest of the 21st, and early 22nd century will likely be in this country.
Have a nice day.
