THE ABSURD TIMES

I have been wanting a precise definition of a MEME for some time now and this was sent to me as a MEME. So, we have the illustration, and all we need is the definition. It is a noun.

Some time ago, we said that the Democratic Party had to reorganize itself and, more importantly, reorient itself. It needs to represent the people, not the upper 1% or even less. It used to be the refuge of labor unions, individuals, and people, as opposed to the big business Republicans. It had that reputation. Now, it is beholden to a neo-liberal program of expansion, globalism, intervention, and capitalism in the worst sense of the word – the sort that gave us the Great Depression that FDR dragged us out of, using many of the ideas of Eugene Debs, in order "to save my friends from themselves’. (Direct quote).

There is a world out there, beyond Amerika and, believe it or not, Germany leads the way. France is joining now. We are obsessed with ourselves. At any rate, Bernie Sanders described a rather mild corrective, a painless way for the party to regain its credibility and popularity. The entire program is here:

Last month more than 4,000 people gathered in Chicago for the People’s Summit. Independent senator, former presidential candidate Bernie Sanders delivered the keynote speech. During his speech, he repeatedly criticized the Democratic Party, calling it an "absolute failure," and blaming it for the election of President Trump. "I’m often asked by the media and others: How did it come about that Donald Trump, the most unpopular presidential candidate in the modern history of our country, won the election?" Sanders said. "And my answer is that Trump didn’t win the election; the Democratic Party lost the election. Let us be very, very clear: The current model and the current strategy of the Democratic Party is an absolute failure."
