I appreciated this observation from a social scientist commenting on the violence protestors were subjected to at a political rally for a far-right French candidate recently:

The social scientist Antoine Bristielle, of the prestigious Jean-Jaurès Foundation, suggested Zemmour’s populist agenda was not high on the list of French people’s priorities, which he said were spending power and the environment.

The real worry is the inability of other political parties to show a more attractive future and to reassure the population,” Bristielle said. “This pessimism is central to building the combat in the extreme right. It’s like Make America Great Again. We can see clear parallels between Zemmour and Trump. And at the moment, this message from the right is all we are hearing.

Democrats need to offer a better vision and soon! Or else they need to step aside and let some lefties try to do that-or else the far-right, anti-immigration, factor will hold sway more and more. I hope cooler heads prevail in halls of power and reason prevails over $ enticements.
I know that’s a super-long shot, but it seems to me to be our only hope.

p.s.

Hello! Most people don’t give a damn about stuff like this:

Joe Biden restores tradition with return to Kennedy Center Honors

I had to hear someone coming close to a breakdown on the phone the other day because they were being faced with quitting school so they could to get back working a second job to pay their rent. The angst in his voice almost broke my heart.

Biden standing there giving a bunch of standing ovations isn’t going to help people counting their pennies hoping that their landlord doesn’t evict them. Is there anyone in the Biden administration who even comes close to getting it?

p.p.s. I love Joni Mitchell, and am happy she was celebrated, but we need more than glam-fests.
I see an urgency that doesn’t seem to be getting addressed.

Joni Mitchell’s great tunes will always stand on their own. As a person, she’s conservative, right wing.
