Resisting Rotten Leadership: from Mencius to Robert Reich

Reich recounted the Trump non-response to pandemic, protests and a collapsing economy, concluding that the president is not a president at all. Some might feel uncomfortable with that idea. After all, like him or not, he has the title. But Reich’s argument is that the title doesn’t make you a president; being a public servant requires performing your duties for the common good.

Fire, pestilence and a country at war with itself: the Trump presidency is over | Donald Trump | The Guardian

Donald Trump looks back as he boards Marine One on the South Lawn of the White House on Saturday.

You’d be forgiven if you hadn’t noticed. His verbal bombshells are louder than ever, but Donald J Trump is no longer president of the United States.
Policing in the US is not about enforcing law. It’s about enforcing white supremacy
By having no constructive response to any of the monumental crises now convulsing America, Trump has abdicated his office.

He is not governing. He’s golfing, watching cable TV and tweeting.

Under Trump, American Exceptionalism Means Poverty, Misery and Death | The Smirking Chimp

No other nation has endured as much death from Covid-19 nor nearly as a high a death rate as has the United States.

With 4.25% of the world population, America has the tragic distinction of accounting for about 30% of pandemic deaths so far.

And it is the only advanced nation where the death rate is still climbing. Three thousand deaths per day are anticipated by 1 June.

CEOs, not the unemployed, are America’s real ‘moral hazard’ | Robert Reich | Opinion | The Guardian

Lindsey Graham is among the Republicans who have attacked extra unemployment benefits

Many Republicans believe economic relief for those without jobs encourages slacking off. But it is corporations that are bailed out again and again

Why Democrats Share the Blame for the Rise of Donald Trump | The Smirking Chimp

Trump is not the cause of our divided nation. He is the symptom of a rigged system that was already dividing us. It’s not enough to defeat him. We must reform the system that got us here in the first place, to ensure that no future politician will ever again imitate Trump’s authoritarian demagoguery.

Why Democrats share the blame for the rise of Donald Trump | Robert Reich | Opinion | The Guardian

Donald Trump speaks in Des Moines, Iowa.

The Great Divider knows how to pit native-born Americans against immigrants, the working class against the poor, whites against blacks and Latinos, evangelicals against secularists, keeping almost everyone stirred up by vilifying, disparaging, denouncing, defaming and accusing others of the worst. Trump thrives off disruption and division.

But that begs the question of why we have been so ready to be divided by Trump. The answer derives in large part from what has happened to wealth and power.
