Lecturing about ‘Violence’ as’the weapon of the stupid’ is the stance of the respectable bourgeois intellectual, out of touch with the desperation/nihilism of the have not’s!
The American Political Class: corrupt Neo-Liberals could not pass a $600 a week lifeline, to millions of unemployed! Garnished by a one time bribe of $1200. The persistent notion that these payments will encourage the ‘malingering’  lower orders : a holdover of the Corporate owned Nixon/Reagan Republicans & New Democrats: e.g. Clinton/Larry Summers, Gramm-Leach-Bliley a monument to political mendacity. 
Proud Boys/Boogaloo Bois infiltrate as ‘demonstrators’ as Antifa & BLM and loot/pillage at will.
For ‘stupidity’ look to American Foreign Policy from 1823’s Monroe Doctrine.

Mr. Bregman don’t spend your political capital on this! ‘We’ rely on you, and a host of others: Yanis Varoufakis, David Harvey, Richard D. Wolff, Mark Blyth, Thomas Piketty etc., etc.

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
