Economic crisis and hypernationalism led to war in the last century. In the US, war or the threat of war in many global theatres seems to be a permanent condition. This too has not only delivered nothing that was promised but has left death and destruction coupled with increasing hostility to the US. Neoliberal elites have a stake in continued amnesia. It hides the central role violence and repression have played in establishing so called market freedoms. Neoliberal privatization and austerity, backed by the hard fist of militarization, have an ugly track record of which we must remind citizens early and often.

More from this great article:

If history can tell the left anything it should be that we can't predict when and where the next economic crisis will occur, but that a downturn is sure. Just as importantly we can be certain that Republicans and many neoliberal Democrats will wring their hands over exploding government deficits, albeit deficits that are a product of private sector "irrational exuberance" or even criminality.

The Left needs to present its own well- documented narratives starting now before even a modest recession is in full swing. When recession does come, infrastructure will be up for discussion, both as to the amount of investment and the role of private capital. Labor, environmental, and social justice advocates need to take the lead in reminding the media and the public of neoliberalism's false promise regarding the privatization of key stat assets. And we cannot point out often enough the price in human lives Russians paid for the obscene affluence gained by a tiny few, including Putin himself.

To be fair to Putin, he booted out the Western looters that devastated Russia's economy and restored some normalcy to the lives of ordinary Russians. Their life expectancy returned to normal and social programs including pensions were restored.

That is why the US and European neoliberals are determined to get rid of him. He refuses to allow Russia to become another vassal to the global ruling class.

None of this is rocket science.

If you know his history, then this 'refusal' is not about being a vassal. Behavior is all... and this man is a despot in all its dimensions

. Maybe that is what is needed to control humans anywhere... certainly that is the theory that works for MSB in Saudia Arabia... to whom we just gave the pot of gold....our best bombs with Raytheon technology.

Before describing Putin as a despot, you might want to read the most recent opinion pieces by Prof. Emeritus of Russian Studies at Princeton and NYU Stephen Cohen.

Stephen, I have another great Article for you. Have read it many times. it is so filled with wisdom and truth.. a conversation that should appear on our site.The Great Work - The Sun Magazine Ralph Nader On Taking Back Power From The Corporate State

a sample "The frailties and the virtues and the strengths of human beings were recognized millennia ago. Why are people still studying Greek tragedies, Greek plays, Aristophanes, Euripides? Why do they read Shakespeare? We need to relish the wisdom of the ancients. Another Chinese philosopher, in the fourteenth century, said, "To know and not to do is not to know." Our society has solutions on the shelf that are not being applied to problems on the ground. We know what to do about climate disruption; we know what to do about housing; we know what to do about living wage; we know how to open access to the courtrooms; we know what to do about fair taxation; we know what to do about full Medicare for All. But we don't do it."

another quote from The Great Work

" We have to defeat this divide-and-rule strategy, which goes back thousands of years. That's how the few control the many. Yes, there are divisions over reproductive rights and gun control, but many policies that would transform this country get combined Left-Right support. If you get Left-Right support on Medicare for All and organize that support in every congressional district, it's unstoppable. You will see the Congress turn around like that. Because when politicians see power they can't beat or co-opt, they are very opportunistic. They want to stay in office."


"Appeal to people's sense of fair play and justice. When you do that, suddenly the red state/blue state divide disappears. When I talk to conservatives in Alabama and Mississippi and Georgia, guess what? They get hurt, too, when there are dangerous cars and toxic air pollution. They get ripped off by the credit-card companies and insurance companies and banks. Focus on these issues that hurt people directly, and suddenly you have an unbeatable political coalition of conservative and liberal people who want a safe environment. You have conservative and liberal taxpayers who don't want their taxes to subsidize big business and Wall Street. You have conservative and liberal voters locking arms."
