Noam Chomsky, Trump in the White House. “It is hard to find words to capture the fact that humans are facing the most important question in their history – whether organized human life will survive in anything like the form we know – and are answering it by accelerating the race to disaster. ….The campaign itself was remarkable in its avoidance of issues, and media commentary generally complied, keeping to the concept that true objectivity means reporting accurately what is “within the beltway” but not venturing beyond. ,,,I don’t think one can answer with any confidence. Trump is too unpredictable. There are too many open questions. What we can say is that popular mobilization and activism, properly organized and conducted, can make a large difference.
And we should bear in mind that the stakes are very large, as I remarked at the outset. read

Chris Hedges, It’s Worse Than You Think. “Our capitalist democracy ceased to function more than two decades ago. We underwent a corporate coup carried out by the Democratic and Republican parties. There are no institutions left that can authentically be called democratic. Trump and Hillary Clinton in a functioning democracy would have never been presidential nominees. The long and ruthless corporate assault on the working class, the legal system, electoral politics, the mass media, social services, the ecosystem, education and civil liberties in the name of neoliberalism has disemboweled the country. It has left the nation a decayed wreck. We celebrate ignorance. We have replaced political discourse, news, culture and intellectual inquiry with celebrity worship and spectacle.” Hedges remembers being told, in 2010, by Noam Chomsky: ‘What are people supposed to think if someone says ‘I have got an answer: We have an enemy’? There it was the Jews. Here it will be the illegal immigrants and the blacks. We will be told that white males are a persecuted minority. We will be told we have to defend ourselves and the honor of the nation. Military force will be exalted. People will be beaten up. This could become an overwhelming force. And if it happens, it will be more dangerous than Germany. The United States is the world power.’ read

Diane Ravitch, When Public Goes Private, as Trump Wants: What Happens? Reviews books by Samuel Abrams and Mercedes Schneider. “For the past fifteen years, the nation’s public schools have been a prime target for privatization. Unbeknownst to the public, those who would privatize the public schools call themselves “reformers” to disguise their goal. Who could be opposed to “reform”?….We invest in public education because it is an investment in the future of society. ….Whatever its faults, the public school system is a hallmark of democracy, doors open to all. It is an essential part of the common good. It must be improved for all who attend and paid for by all. Privatizing portions of it, as Trump wants, will undermine public support and will provide neither equity nor better education.” read

R. Joseph Hoffmann, PARADIGMATIC UNSUITABILITY: AN INDICTMENT OF DONALD J. TRUMP “Just as no one on the Democratic side managed to say that Trump’s definition of greatness was an absurdity because it was nothing more than a crabbed and nostalgic vision of little America, they also never managed to come up with a coherent list of reasons supporting the unfit-to-govern meme they tried to sell, preferring instead to itemize his daily wowsers, tweets and untruths as though the American people are smart enough to judge for themselves and can make the distinction between moral reprobacy and an email server. But as we know from the outcome, they can’t.” read

Irissa Cisternino, Trump’s Share Of The White Evangelical Vote Was Huge. “According to Pew, pretty much the only faith group in Trump’s corner were white Christians. Overall, Protestants, Catholics and other Christian faiths supported the Republican candidate, with white Catholics supporting Trump by a margin of 60 percent. All other faith groups supported Hillary Clinton by a large margin.
But what was particularly striking is that white, born-again evangelicals backed Trump in droves, with a whopping 81 percent casting a ballot for the real estate mogul.” read

The reality is that their venality is rather ordinary. There’s a reason the term politician is synonymous with lying, calculation, and ambition — these are common qualities for politicians.” read

In small groups anger can help fuel social change. But when a whole society is angry compromise, the lifeblood of democratic politics, is impossible.” read
