We’re all being played for fools in a dangerous game of world monopoly. Is Trump just the magician’s tool to distract us while they pull the swifty?
Hilary has always been suss due to her links with Monsanto and other corporate mega-lords.
It’s disappointing to read about Jeremy Corbyn’s shadow treasurer committing to most austerity.
It’s disappointing that Bernie Sanders has promised to support Hilary Clinton.
I guess that’s politics eh?
Disappointing just doesn’t cut it as a descriptive ……
“In Britain last week, Jeremy Corbyn’s closest ally, his shadow treasurer John McDonnell, committed a Labour government to pay off the debts of piratical banks and, in effect, to continue so-called austerity.
In the US, Bernie Sanders has promised to support Clinton if or when she’s nominated. He, too, has voted for America’s use of violence against countries when he thinks it’s “right”. He says Obama has done “a great job”.
In Australia, there is a kind of mortuary politics, in which tedious parliamentary games are played out in the media while refugees and Indigenous people are persecuted and inequality grows, along with the danger of war. The government of Malcolm Turnbull has just announced a so-called defence budget of $195 billion that is a drive to war. There was no debate. Silence.
What has happened to the great tradition of popular direct action, unfettered to parties? Where is the courage, imagination and commitment required to begin the long journey to a better, just and peaceful world? Where are the dissidents in art, film, the theatre, literature?
Where are those who will shatter the silence? Or do we wait until the first nuclear missile is fired?”
