ERIC SCHECHTER—Regulations can’t make a kinder, gentler guillotine. The problem is not good institutions run badly, but bad institutions, founded on bad principles. We can’t end ecocide, poverty, war, and other problems until we replace our society’s real principles — hierarchy, property, and separateness — with a better Foundation: harmony and consensus. It’s a fool’s errand to try to make the lies of freedom and democracy come true, for those “principles” can’t really work.

PATRICK MARTIN—The 2018 elections could well see a similar process, but in reverse. Angered by the tax cuts for the wealthy and big business, the gutting of social programs like Medicaid and food stamps, the attacks on immigrants and democratic rights more generally, and Trump’s threats of military violence and even nuclear war, millions of working people, however reluctantly, will go to the polls to cast their ballots for the official “opposition,” the Democratic Party, which does not actually oppose Trump at all.

RICHARD EDMONDSON—You would think that the Kagans would be concerned about the prominence in the new government of people like Tyahnybok. In 2005 the Svoboda leader co-signed an open letter to then-President Yuschenko calling for a parliamentary investigation into the “criminal activities of organized Jewry in Ukraine.” He also asserted at one time that Ukraine is run by a “Moscow-Jewish mafia,” and complained that “Germans, kikes, and other scum” were undermining the country. Equally he has expressed solidarity with Stepan Bandera and other Ukrainian insurgents who took up arms in World War II to fight “Muscovites, Germans, Jewry and other filth,” as he put it.

NICK PEMBERTON—Anyone who calls out Bernie for what he really is—an apologist for American Empire is framed as a purist. But that’s far from the truth. Bernie, on a global scale, is an extremist on foreign policy. Compare him to other leaders around the world and he is right wing, plain and simple. He would continue to violate international law. When he does question the American military his tears are for the American middle class and our tax dollars.
