To the Point

There comes a time in every epoch when pragmatism simply evolves into extreme acquiescence and surrender to the forces of apathy and do-nothingness, a guarantor of the status quo in all of its easy, democratic criminality--its fortress of greed.--TL Simons

Picnic in Philly, Or Cheese Without the Steak

Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein, other activists and I will march with Honkala. It is not as if we have a choice. No one invited us into the center or to the lavish corporate-sponsored receptions. No one anointed us to be Clinton superdelegates—a privilege that went to corporate lobbyists, rich people and party hacks. No one in the Democratic establishment gives a damn what we think.--CH

Despite his well-grounded recognition of the fraudulent nature of "democracy" as it is manufactured and packaged by our corporate overlords, Hedges will join Stein and other Leftists cum "revolutionaries" at the DNC.

Apparently he has deluded himself into believing a point can be made there, though it's hard to imagine what it is or why he would want to mingle with the rabble who know nothing about politics. Maybe he's just crazy enough to think, despite the teeming stupidity, er naivete, that will surely surround him at the dais, some disparate voices ought be heard.

Good to hear he hasn't thrown in the towel, I guess, but man what a waste of time!

Oh, have you heard?  Clinton has the delegates to win already.  My guess is Hedges will look away when Clinton and Sanders hug, and that will be disparaged as unrealistic and rude.
