Lawrence Lessig: The Electoral College Is Constitutionally Allowed to Choose Clinton over Trump

*I think it’s obvious that if Trump had won the popular vote, this segment wouldn’t have aired.

Lessig is a Democratic Party shill, unless you believe that proclaiming a warmonger and Machiavellian greed and power addict — in other words, a “criminal” — to be a “completely qualified candidate for president” is a rational view to hold.

I’d beg to differ.

That said, had indeed the situation been reversed, I wouldn’t be making the argument that Trump should be the president elect.

When the winner of the game makes losers of all but those who share his sociopathy

Following its rules is a sure sign of psychopathy.

We Are All Deplorables
by Chris Hedges

*Can righteous anger against prejudice be honestly expressed without denying the humanity of the bigot?

Can we get in the faces of the haters while still seeing ourselves in them?

Can we not give one inch in deploring their deplorable views, and yet see, and make plain to them that we see, that they spring from a vileness not of their making, that wounds us both?

I believe our anger as well as our empathy are necessary to reach across the divide.

Respect arises from honesty.

We both have to acknowledge our common pain, and our common humanity, if we are to find common cause.

Chris Hedges: The Surrender of the Liberal Left to Neoliberalism Gave Us Proto-fascism
The demonization of third parties misses the fact that roots of our current situation are austerity, deindustrialization, and the impoverishment of half the nation, says journalist Chris Hedges

*We have to go beyond the prescriptions of Nader, the Greens and every other visible political formation in this country. But we can’t do that until we acknowledge that a system based on profit and competition can never deliver a just society.

Just the opposite.

At the core of any fair socioeconomic structure are the principles of shared responsibility, and shared benefit. Winning and losing aren’t part of the equation.

I have no faith that that penny will drop among the mass of Americans, given the capitalist religiosity we’ve been force fed

But truth doesn’t change because it’s not understood, does it?

RAI with Former Weatherman Bill Ayers (3/3)
In an interview that took place days before Trump was elected President, Bill Ayers discusses what needs to be done as we head into a ”form of friendly looking and familiar fascism or some other form of extreme social disintegration”

*Democrats tell us that we have to play the game

And the game is what got us here.

Sanders and what comes out of his campaign don’t reject the game. They simply want to change some of the rules. Greens and most other “alternatives” pretty much align with that.

See “Syriza”.

And that’s not going to get us out of here, to where we need to get to.

A truly radical break is necessary, if we truly believe that everyone — everyone — has the right to a dignified life. If you believe that you have no more right to that than anyone else.

And if you believe that the only way to get there is through cooperation and community, not competition and profit, you can’t devote your energy to changing the rules of a game based on the latter.

That only leads to a different spot on the same game board, with the same players making the moves, and the rest of us as only slightly less malleable pawns.

Flipping over the table is a fearsome prospect, and a lot of people — and that could well include you or me — who don’t deserve to be deeply harmed will be.

Fairy tales don’t come true

But perhaps a fair world might emerge from the maelstrom.

It’s our only hope

And always has been.

You can make it clear that you honestly “feel their pain” (you’re in the same boat to one degree or another, after all), without in any way excusing their ignorant and bigoted response to it by blaming “the other”.

And you can do your damnedest to show them who’s truly responsible for that pain — the exploitocracy that is an equal opportunity immiserator.

Nasty Women vs. The Greatest Victim in the History of the World Donald Trump
by Ann Jones

*Jones nails the sickening sociopathy of A Donald, and is spot on in praising the bravery of the women who have exposed it by recounting their horrific experiences with him

But lauding Her Travesty as a “fighter”, and all the female Republicans who found it politically expedient to finally break with their nominee, speaks to a blind spot inherent in the expression of identity politics.

I could care less whether an office seeker is female (or black or queer et alia)

I care about what they’re going to try to do for women, minorities and every other “other”.

The only identity that matters to me is the hue of their humanity.
