  8. Exquisite clarity from Professor H. ~ realistic antidotes to a sick situation.

    The best worst news about Trump’s ‘illustrious triumph,’ is the exposure of our establishment crony media, that has bankrupted itself. The worst, worst news however, is the utter destitution of the moral estate of the USA.

    We really cannot afford any longer to just ‘wait and see;’ to keep ‘hoping for the best;’ or dreaming hysterically of bigger, bouncier, happy-go-lucky rabbits emerging from the black magician’s white top-hat, to frisk about in utopian alt-right astro-turf meadows, replete with sanitized flowers trembling in the sinister toxic breeze, to hypnotic ‘sugar-free’ Nashville melodies….that fake pharmaceutical CGI nightmare is already here.

    Greed and indifference has succeeded beyond its most vulgar fantasies of opulence. The flotilla of ill-gotten billionaires really has no place left to sail, let alone despoil, they are the beneficiaries of an ecocidal tide of totalitarian dereliction; we should divest, sanction and boycott the entire grizzly enterprise. Redesign and redefine to re-educate our prejudices.

    Michael Hudson’s revised lexicon is sorely needed.
