@georgegalloway: regarding the Hillary Clique

It is way past time to purge from the Democratic Party the ‘New Democrats’ i.e. the Neo -Liberals who brought us Welfare Reform, Prison Reform, awash in political euphemisms, and the ultimate expressions their Reaganite Agenda Gramm-Leach-Bliley, that repealed Glass-Steagall! It took 9 years from Gramm’s passage to the 2008 Depression and its watershed the ‘Gig Economy’ : the institutionalization of Randian hack Alan Greenspan’s ideal of ‘worker insecurity’ !
The Clintons and their coterie will insure that Trump is re-elected, because, again, they will engage in a campaign of defamation of Sen. Sanders and his actual Reform Agenda.
To defeat the Neo-Liberals will take a transgenerational commitment to actual Reform: The New Deal, in its present incarnation, the Green New Deal is not an inevitability. Too late for anything but plain speaking. Long ago The Republic was swallowed whole by the imperatives of the National Security State: but perhaps we can, at the least, reclaim our allegiance to that plain speaking, as one of the most important tools of actual reform?

Best regards,

Rootless cosmopolitan,down at heels intellectual;would be writer. 'Polemic is a discourse of conflict, whose effect depends on a delicate balance between the requirements of truth and the enticements of anger, the duty to argue and the zest to inflame. Its rhetoric allows, even enforces, a certain figurative licence. Like epitaphs in Johnson’s adage, it is not under oath.' https://www.lrb.co.uk/v15/n20/perry-anderson/diary
