“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

"She Dominated Him"

"...And she made it seem effortless."

It was a thing to behold, in her blazing red.

And the zingers about his penchant for beauty contests & failed casinos & alternate realities comprised entirely of trump mirrors and echo chambers.

Enjoyable spectacle of patriarchal comeuppance aside, beneath the neoliberal jackboot, I mean mule, is not a merry place to be so forgive me for a bit of concern.

Trump was actually semi-correct concerning free trade but everything else might have been lifted from a parody of a political contest in a former Soviet Republic.

What was more concerning is the announcement that the US will not hit even the mild the Paris Climate Protocol targets in 25 years, Hilary's embrace of the IMF and Worldbank protocols and expected embrace of TPP and TAFTA once elected, and the sad sad image of Jill Stein being manhandled away by the bouncers. Whether you are with Jill or not that bit of pathos shows you where the progressive left stands in the US.

An old colleague of mine told me that his 4 year old grand-daughter watched the presidential debates and that she "liked the grandma, not the meanie."
