$2,000 a month for Everyone*: Dear Joe Biden #04

2000 a month until this is over. Pass it on. Try to imagine yourself 20 years in the future, explaining the Trump administration’s response to the coronavirus to someone who did not live through it. Go ahead. Come up with a metaphor, leave it in the comments, and have a blast. The overlap between what would typically be called hyperbole and the truth of the matter offers a breathtakingly wide-open opportunity.

Save the Climate or Save Capitalism? | #FloodWallStreet Dispatch

On Monday, moments before about 3,000 Flood Wall Street protesters stepped off from Battery Park at the Southern tip of Manhattan for what was sure to be a more raucous and less predictable affair that the overwhelming positive People’s Climate March on Sunday, I asked Adam Clayton-Muller of Idle No More what was essential for society to effectively address climate change.

“The root problem,” Thomas-Muller told me “is Capitalism. We are popularizing the fact that we are having a conversation about the radial redistribution of land and wealth on Mother Earth and I think Flood Wall Street has an opportunity to use this as a global teaching moment about that reality.”

Like many Flood Wall Street participants, Andy Bichlbaum of The Yes Men had conflicting feelings about the Peoples’ Climate March, telling me: “I found it a little disturbing that all these people think they are doing something by showing up for the march.
