Trump is having the fed release $1.5 f*cking TRILLION dollars to ease the troubled waters of the market. Yesterday, half a trillion was released for the same reason, as the market was having the fourth biggest crash in history-- and that Fed announcement of a $500 billion bolus worked to assuage a crashing market for 15 minutes.
And the Democratic party leadership and the DNC have waged a massive war against Bernie Sander and his supporters, with outright unsupported lies maligning Sanders as unelectable and slandering Sanders supporters as Bernie Bros who are supposedly worse than supporters of other candidates. Now, there is research that has shown that Berni Sanders supporters are no worse than supporters of Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren or anyone else. It is clear to me that the Democratic leadership would rather hold on to their power, which Bernie Sanders does threaten, than actually beat Trump. They've sent an army of pundits and colluded with CNN and MSNBC to tar Sanders as someone who can't beat Trump, all the while ignoring the daily worsening of Joe Biden's dementia.
These are top-down approaches that are incredibly bad for 99% of the people. Instead of handing out $1.5 trillion to big companies and banks, give the money to people with medical and student debt. Give it to people who can't work because of corona virus, people who don't have healthcare. When you distribute money locally, to regular people, the money quickly goes back into the local economy. We saw how massive grants of hundreds of billions of dollars to big banks went into creating bigger banks and corporate consolidation.
You might criticize me for comparing top-down insanity to a deadly virus. But I believe that the response to the Corona virus is so bad because of top-down thinking. The strong potential that as Joe Biden's dementia becomes more obvious Donald Trump's chances of winning will keep going up. If Biden IS elected and his dementia continues, he will be kept in office, as Reagan was, with handlers pulling his puppet strings, the ultimate top--down power addict's wetdream.
We have these top-down insanity problems because our culture worships top-down ideas-- with top down religions and religious systems, authoritarian religion, parenting, education, business and healthcare. We have to address all of these. The only way to do that is with a bottom-up revolution that recognizes the wisdom of the crowds and taps the power of the people. We can do this, but we have to fight the powers that be and recognize them for the threats that they are, including the millions of passive authoritarians who need to be told what to do.
