With Trudeau’s recent press conference in which he claimed to have never coerced people into compliance, we have entered a doublespeak world worse than anything the “fake news” and “truthiness” era of Trump could have imagined.
There is no political left…
Naomi Klein, Noam Chomsky, and Michael Moore, to name a few, should have been able to spot the Covid psyop in about 5 minutes. Instead they became rabid cheerleaders for fascism and genocide.
Neoliberalism killed the liberal dream
“Neoliberalism” is a bit of a misnomer. Instead of revitalising some kind of classical liberal project, it sounded its death knell. And in its place, our democratic will was subordinated to that of the expert and the technocrat.
America, the Single-Opinion Cult
It was once considered healthy for the press to play to mass audiences and position itself as a skeptical thorn in the side of officialdom. There is no institution like that left in American life. What we have instead is an increasingly pissed-off population that needs to look about eighty results down in every Google search to find its point of view represented.
Democrats vs. Democrats — One of Them Will Lose
Even if the means are justified by the end, the problem is that this Democratic Party response — this hate-Republicans-at-all-costs messaging (while party leaders themselves cut deals with them) — is not going to work.
Democrats Have Nothing Left But Trump
We don’t just look like a country in decline, we ARE a country in decline. Here we are, seven years later and all Democrats have to show for themselves is nonstop persecution of Trump and MAGA, and two un-electable candidates at the top of the ticket for 2024.

Biden visits East Palestine, “Where’s Hamas? Where’s Arafat?”
Biden said, “You’re not going to rope me into a discussion of hazmat terrorist attacks. The whole point of my conference with Hamas is de-escalating violence in the region. We still have friends in Israel, you know.”
The End of Progressive Intellectual Life
The centralized and authoritarian control of American progressivism by major foundations and the nonprofits that they fund, and the large media institutions, universities, corporations, and banks that disseminate the progressive party line, has made it impossible for there to be public intellectuals on the American center left.
The Democrats are Now the War Party
The Democratic Party has become the party of permanent war, fueling massive military spending which is hollowing out the country from the inside and flirting with with nuclear war.
“Supporting” Protesters In Empire-Targeted Nations: Not Helping
Nobody has ever once been able to provide a good explanation of how leftists can throw their weight behind narratives that are being exploited for propaganda against empire-targeted governments without assisting those propaganda campaigns.
How the War Machine Took Over the Democrats
The new Democrats, especially with the presidency of Bill Clinton, became shills not only for corporate America but the arms industry. No weapons system is too costly. No war, no matter how disastrous, goes unfunded.
