Jimmy Dore and Chris Hedges try to sort out the many reasons why America is in revolt, drowning in social injustice and inequality, institutionalised violence and corruption, and a glaring lack of even essential services like universal healthcare. American cities and entire regions and states, and hunreds of millions of Americans have been hurt and damaged by capitalism, their social fabric rent and central institutions hollowed by capitalism. So now the people are in the streets, but this is not a revolution. This is only leaderless spontaneism. The system can easily overcome that. A different kind of social and political organising are needed to effect serious changes, and America is still a far cry from that desperately needed point.

CAITLIN JOHNSTONE—Trump could have run as a Democrat in 2016 with a liberal-sounding platform, enacted the exact same policies he’s enacted as president, and, as long as he kept saying nice-sounding things, Democrats would think he’s awesome right now.

ANGEL GUERRA CABRERA—The history of terrorism against Cuba and, in particular, against its diplomatic headquarters, is a long one. But there is reason to believe that the fascist mafia in Miami and the cronies in the (dis)government of Donald Trump intend to encourage a return to such practices. The United States continues to be complicit in the machine-gunning of the Cuban embassy in Washington on April 30. And yet not a word about such a serious event from the State Department seems to hide something unutterable. If this attack is not investigated and cleared up in accordance with the laws of the United States and the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations, it will set a terrible precedent.

During the debate, Bloomberg’s Twitter account attacked Sanders over his AIPAC comments. “To characterize AIPAC as a racist platform is offensive, divisive, and dangerous to Israel – America’s most important ally in the Middle East – and to Jews,” the tweet read, “How can Bernie profess he’s the path to unity when he’s already managed to polarize a people and a party?”

BUT, just how bad is this “terrible” epidemic? For starters, it’s not the Black Death, it does not act as a contagion. Nor is it anything as dreadful as the Ebola virus. In terms of actual numbers, its footprint so far is infinitesimal. 10,000 infected people with about 200+ deaths is not exactly cataclysmic in a nation of 1.4 billion people. The regular flu in the US is a much bigger threat to life than the coronavirus, yet we take it all in stride and there is hardly a fear porn campaign by the media, the politicians and the rest of the noise machine controlled by the American state.
