Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

I have also not noticed that being angry produces any political power.

Germany 1848. Spain 1936-39. Bolivia 1952-1971.

The situation is what it is. The power of finance capital and the military/security managers in the US cannot be pretended away. No government can act without taking those powers into account.

Where did I propose to act without taking them into account?

What I proposed was to break them. Destroy them. Utterly. Send the lot of them to prison or the poor house. Preferably before the midterm primary season.

You can win that way. You can also, of course, lose that way. But as long as he does not take the fight to the enemy, he will lose and he will keep losing. The alternative would at least give him a fighting chance.
