But obviously, Trump is not the problem. As this reflection has suggested, the problem is a system that prioritizes the welfare of investors like the rich man in the Parable of the Talents. And we all know that Mr. Biden and his running mate have no intention of departing from that economic arrangement.
Biden and Harris can't even imagine a mechanism that treats everyone like family members rather than as interchangeable clients.
Yet somehow, like Paul in the reading from Thessalonians, the enlightened among us can already feel that the labor pangs of the new world Jesus envisioned. Alert and clear-headed, we must commit ourselves to pushing the system in that direction - towards something reflective of Michael Hudson's recommendations, towards the North Star Jesus called God's Kingdom.
Hoping against hope, pushing the Biden administration down that path represents our challenge over the next four years.
