The Mid-Term Elections, 2018
This should be brief. What happened in the mid-terms? Absolutely nothing.
By which I mean, we live in a national security state that pervades our lives, allegedly for our own security, a state that cannot function without engaging in endless wars all over the globe, while spending humongous sums of money on weapons of war, and a state that must incarcerate huge numbers of its citizens, especially the ones who would have little to lose if they resisted, and a state that is based on racism, sexism, homophobia, and Islamophobia, in other words, based on an all-pervasive fear.
And nothing that happened on Tuesday as a result of our mid-terms is going to change any of this.
