  4. Happy days…Professor Giroux lays out the challenges with astute contextual mastery. The alternative would have been, as many of us expected, far worse than this political pantomime in rehearsal.

    All we can say with much certainty at present, is that this Trump cabal is so blatantly market-led & cronyist, all the reactionary cards are now on the table. How this wonderland deck gets shuffled, stacked and dealt, remains in the surreal lap of the gods I suspect.

    Perhaps we should weigh the grave implications of arrogant Trump-style US ‘protectionism’ and undiplomatic precocity for the rest of the world. It seems highly unlikely that a grossly non-regulated free-for-all will ensue, without robust resistance on multiple fronts ~ both domestically and abroad.

    • As for Netanyahu’s latest manic outburst ~ seems to me he is bidding for posthumous status as the ugliest politician in the universe. Not exactly the boon companion any sane President-elect should be conciliatory towards.

      The problem with enemies, and reactionary adversarialism generally, is that it tends to provoke (& promote) the very thing it purports to condemn.

      Netanyahu has shed so much innocent blood, ruined so many promising lives and brutally mutilated so many innocents, his torturous soul is already fatally entangled in the writhing nemesis of destiny’s strangler fig; only he doesn’t know this yet, since the dreadfully impending enormity of those crimes has so far eluded him.

      Tant pis.
