    Was reading in The China Mirage by James Bradley how much money was made from the opium trade – Delano, Forbes, Cushing, Russell (Yale), Perkins, Low, Green (Princeton). Just to mention the university institutions

    This indeed is a great opportunity for the authentic American left to engage people and educate the masses. If this opportunity is not seized, the Democratic Party could revive to launch yet another campaign of deceit and subterfuge. The only anti-dote to that, is education. People must become aware of their history, of their political economy and of the untold realities within their surrounding social system.

    We remember the protests that started after Trump was selected president by the electoral college. By 2020, I believe the masses of people will be thoroughly pissed off at the democrat and republican parties. Will a third party have a greater potential to win the oval office? How is Russia doing with Women’s Rights? “Pussy Riot: A Punk Prayer” (1:28:18)

    We fast approach critical mass on a socio-economic level and also on an environmental level. It is looking like the latter hinges on the progression or digression of the former and with an extremely delayed reaction. The point of no return may have come and gone or has yet to be. Nonetheless, if you look at the trends and make projections, what do you see? No matter how bad it may look, one must not give up trying to right the ship. Kudos to the efforts of Richard Wolff for seeing with clear eyes and acting with courage. I hope his talks will help others see and do the same.
