America’s election season degrades mainstream political discourse even
beyond its usual lowly state. The worst attributes of our political
culture — obsession with trivialities, the dominance of horserace
“reporting,” and mindless partisan loyalties — become more pronounced
than ever. Meanwhile, the actually consequential acts of the U.S.
Government and the permanent power factions that control it — covert
endless wars, consolidation of unchecked power, the rapid growth of the
Surveillance State and the secrecy regime, massive inequalities in the
legal system, continuous transfers of wealth from the disappearing
middle class to large corporate conglomerates — drone on with even less
attention paid than usual.
