US hegemony, the patient public beast, and a man of integrity, style, and purpose

For the first time in decades we have a man willing to take on the US hegemony. And he does it with integrity, style, and purpose.

Why does the media refer to Sanders’ “shock victories,” when it’s clear that the people love him for his unprecedented appeal to their requirements of a leader.

The beast is waking up to a new leader, who, by media standards, must be seen as “shocking”.

As one who grew up trusting the media, I’m frankly disappointed.

But Bernie was kept out of the election spotlight for a long time by the…

In the last 50 years there have been two major threats to life on our planet. The first, the nuclear arms race and its near disaster of 1962, was narrowly averted by President John F. Kennedy and his brother Robert Kennedy, who then set a course for peace. (See Part I of this essay)
