An informal chat with Caleb Maupin as your guide to the multitude of news, lies, distortions, rumors, idiocies, hypocrisies, and ideologies that shape our world.
Caleb discusses Joe Biden's speech. While admitting that Biden said some encouraging and highly unusual things (for a US president), such as a debunking of trickle down economics, and recognising the need for a big jobs and infrastructure program, and other progressive notions, Maupin warns about the sinister undertones in the address, especially the effort by Biden (the collective Biden) to equate anti-imperialist nations and activists with "rightwing terrorists"—homegrown or foreign. Fact is, anti-imperialist states—Russia/Soviet Union, Cuba, Venezuela, North Korea, Vietnam, Iran, China, etc.— have always been firm allies of progressives everywhere, and that makes them also anti-racist activists. Beware, says Caleb, of the emerging "woke imperialism" being promoted by the Biden crowd, representing the current "solution" chosen by the Democrats/Deep State wing of the US ruling class as a cure for the multitude of crises besetting a neoliberal leviathan unable and incapable of finding true solutions.
