Jimmy Dore breaks down the task that lays head for Progressives, by showing a recent statement by Brown University Economics professor, Mark Blyth.
Blyth accurately predicted Brexit and Trump and he explains in plain English (with his fabulous Scottish burr) how globalization and capitalism are failing people throughout the world – and why this means that more Brexits and Trumps are on the way – starting with Italy, France and Spain.
As Dore notes, the last time the world saw CEO-to-worker pay discrepancy as high as 475-to-1 was during the Third Reich. The NeoLiberalism of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton is exactly that: Fascism – or what “Il Duce”, Benito Mussolini preferred to call “Corporatism”.
Dore urges Progressives to wake up to this and “Do NOT listen to Chris Hayes, do NOT listen to Rachel Maddow, do NOT listen to CNN, do NOT listen to George Snuffleupagus (Dore is a comedian – he means George Stephanopoulos) – or any of those people. Don’t listen to Joan Walsh, don’t listen to Ezra Klein. Don’t listen to any of those people. They have an interest in the system staying the way it is – and they have no idea what a working person is – NONE!”
