RAMIN MAZAHERI—Because the Western 1%, and the Mainstream Media they own, wants to obscure this lens – how the defense of Khashoggi fits in with the inevitable capitalist pressure from international high finance to get control over Saudi oil – they thus want us to believe that Khashoggi was a “reformer”. But the West doesn’t care at all about democratically empowering the 99% in Saudi Arabia, of course; and the mere step up from absolute to constitutional monarchy is no “reform” in the 21st century – modern political thought declares that this is a bogus reform.

RUSSELL BENTLEY—If you want to know what’s in store for the USA, look at Ukraine. A failed state. Undrinkable water. No heat for millions. Ecological and economic rape six ways from Sunday. Utterly corrupt oligarchs and politicians who loot the nation and the people of every possible resource, who ruin the country and its future, then skedaddle with their billions as Yatsenyuk did, as Poroshenko will, as Tymoshenko will. (As Trump and Clinton will.) And do you really think there will be any difference when ukrops vote between Poroshenko and Tymoshenko? Just as much difference as between Trump and those who came before or whoever comes after.

TEODROSE FIKRE—The inversion of our government from public providers to private abettors was accomplished way before January 20th, 2017. The only thing different now is that Trump’s boorish behaviors, megalomaniac pathology and insidious rhetoric has lifted the government’s veneer of authority and exposed it for the carnival of gluttony it truly is. Democrats and Republicans are not opposing parties but colluding factions, their infighting and bickering is carefully stage crafted theater that masks over how both parties are conduits of the neo-aristocracy.

ALEX LANTIER—The unanimous turn against Mélenchon in the French media, many parts of which once styled themselves as socialists, is a warning. The layers of the affluent middle class drawn from the post-1968 student movement that dominated what passed for “left” politics have shifted far to the right and cast their lot in with the police state. The struggle to defend democratic rights requires above all the struggle for the political independence of the working class from other class forces.
