…too bad about the "…great men like Lincoln and Roosevelt...", bow; the turn to David Brooks!. …pretty much, again, doesn't reflect to our concern, – ignores the social structure in which we live, Constitutional/democratic regardless … the one that needs overthrow. While this description of these times, like so many others, attempts to amalgamate our many declarations about what's just happened, our many descriptives of the character of it and of the players – millions of us-them, it altogether ignores our central concern ….
The article well displays the lengths to which our Owners will continue to emerge victorious even though, it seems, they had little to do with this particular result of the madness to which their Ownership has driven us.
In honor of a recently deceased comrade: 'democracy is a tool, unnecessary in a just society'. The social structure is what remains – the wholly trinity: economicsocialpolitical. The fault lays with capitalism's structures that teach us the falsehoods: school, jobs, unions, family, erasure of community, media, obeisance to our enslavement imposed by the social system. It cannot correctly be laid upon individuals – whites, for instance, or non-voting voters. It does arise somewhat from repression of voting – but where but from our Owners' pockets does that come? …again, raising lack of reference to our central concern…

Never before have I seen such hyperbole on the part of the moderate left. For good or ill American Constitutionality is remarkably stable. True, the mass incarceration of the undocumented and the unpresidented numbers of the incarcerated is extremely troubling and certainly distressing to those affected. Nevertheless, it bears no meaningful comparison to fascist Italy, much less Nazi Germany.
