In addition, we compare Donald Trump and Joe Biden in the context of domestic and foreign policy with a focus on Europe. Lastly we explore the importance of economic policy solutions, activism and independent media in this day and age.

  3. What has made the two major parties increasingly evil is not the act of voting for the lesser evil one day every 4 years. Rather, it’s what people have done, or not done, in the other 1460 days in those 4 years.

    • By “people” do you mean the president, or other politicians?

      “If you don’t put pressures on the center of power, you just move irrevocably further and further to the right.” — Chris Hedges

      • By “people” I meant you and me and millions of others. We need to spread the truth about what is really going on. We need to wake and unite the 99%. And then we can overthrow the 1%. Not just “apply pressure” to them. This has gone on far too long.
