PATRICE GREANVILLE—At the end of the day, Tucker Carlson, whose gyrations may remain beyond our ken for a long time, perhaps forever, may be a victim of what RD Laing once called “The Divided Self”. Laing’s study, a probe into the nature of what we might call “functional mental illness”, saw psychosis not as a medical condition, but as an outcome of the ‘divided self’, “or the tension between the two personas within us: one our authentic, private identity, and the other the false, ‘sane’ self that we present to the world.”

ERIC LONDON—The Democratic Party is a party of reaction, based on an alliance of the military-intelligence apparatus, Wall Street, and the affluent, identity-obsessed upper middle class. Its differences with Trump have always been tactical in character. The Democrats’ chief concern is that Trump is undermining the key strategic imperatives of American imperialism—particularly in relation to Russia—and that his unpredictable and erratic behavior will destabilize domestic politics, stoke popular opposition, and further endanger their foreign policy goals. When it comes to cutting taxes, lowering interest rates and increasing military spending, the Democrats and Trump agree. Both support Trump’s oft-repeated threat that “America will never be a socialist country.”

WENDELL POTTER—It’s going to take, kind of, a sea change. Certainly, the current leadership in Washington is not going to make this happen. Bernie Sanders does have some solid and bold ideas. He advocates for moving us to an improved and expanded Medicare program in which all of us would be covered by Medicare, and allowing the Medicare program to actually negotiate with drug companies for lower prices. We should have that. The drug companies and the insurance industry lobbied against that and have successfully kept Medicare from being able to do that.
