  1. Unbridled capitalism has destroyed Western economies where the lack of redistribution of money and resources, the decentralization of large sector of the economy and the unsolved economic crisis of 2008 that showed governments would do nothing to curb banks and finance. When people no longer believe in their institution and see their purchasing power diminish every year, they search to blame someone and populists always offer immigrants as culprits who are easy prey. History has been repeating itself for centuries. Sad.
  2. Yes, populism has unfortunately moved from angry white men to a frank broad of the population. They are not so many, but unfortunately people are going less and less to vote leaving room for fans of these populist movements that are going to the polls. And this is the risk that all Western countries have to expect for the coming years: far-right parties will eventually come to power because of the defection of the electorate of the other parties and because of the splitting of the moderate vote among several parties.
  3. I know but If a far-right party comes into power in a country, believe me that it will not be anymore on my travel itinerary. It is a matter of principle and value. Well, I do not think it will be for tomorrow in your country, but the rise of the party in the 3rd rank excludes nothing for the future.
  4. It is an infinite sadness to see this constant rise of the far-right in a country that has experienced four decades of dictatorship having ended only 45 years ago. I did well to plan a trip to Spain next year because I'm afraid the future will be even darker for this beautiful country than it has been since the economic crisis of 2008.
  5. This dangerous madwoman should be thrown into jail and her child placed in foster care to be protected from her disturbed stupid mother.
  6. Network was such a fantastic and visionary movie about the breaking of journalistic power in the hands of corporations.
  7. You are so right. If the traditional media and social networks had stopped giving him a perpetual showcase for the last 4 years, we would not be there. Unfortunately, his new bullshit of the day attracts the clicks and the media take advantage of it. As for the media coverage of Sanders, it was obviously minimal, because his message goes against the backers who support these media. If Sanders had been the Democratic candidate, you can be sure that the media would have made little coverage of his campaign and reported the 5000 occurrences where Trump would shout the words Dangerous Socialist during his campaign. Moving the political agenda is so complicated in the US because of the bipartism that has been going on since the beginning of the country.
  8. I will not be so sure. Analysis of the results of the 2016 election showed that 1 out of 10 Sanders fans voted for Trump which could have cost 3 key states for Clinton (https://www.npr.org/2017/08/24/545812242/1-in-10-sanders-primary-voters-ended-up-supporting-trump-survey-finds). Yes, the gerrymandering and the desuet electoral system are the prime culprits of this political cul-de-sac, but the Democrats' search for the pure and perfect candidate and the refusal to settle behind the chosen candidate will cost them the election again. The situation is serious and the answer must be unified and strong to get rid of this dangerous lunatic.
  9. Unfortunately, his base of 30% of illiterate, deplorable, racist and religious hypocrites who vote for him will continue to support him whatever happens. That's why the other American voters will have to rank behind the Democratic candidate and go out to vote massively next year. Unfortunately, all Sanders supporters will abstain from voting when he does not receive the nomination and it will open the door to a division of the vote that will re-elect this dangerous sociopath fool for another 4 years of destruction of our democracy.
  10. The anger of the Chileans is legitimate and I hope they will maintain the pressure on the government. After having lived decades of dictatorship, they live today in a facade democracy without any redistribution of wealth.
  11. For the last 3 years, Pelosi has rejected any attempt of impeachment because she wanted to keep the Democrats in a strategic zone that has solidified the image of a party that did not understand its mistakes of the last presidential race. Standard political strategies do not apply against this man. The classical democratic candidates are also a mistake. Democrats must be aggressive, use all the legislative tools at their disposal and think outside the box for their presidential candidate. Joe is not that candidate.
  12. Yes, the procedure should have been started a long time ago. No, they will not succeed, but it sends the right message that everything that has been said by the Democrats for 3 years was not fake news. Their lack of action until now sends the message to the people that the liar-in-chief was telling the truth by saying that all of this was democratic inventions.
