And I don't think she should have lasted through any month, but, of course, it's not up to me and nobody listens to me anyway. And Gilad Atzmon weighed in a few days ago on their politics and his own contemplations on the matter of time.
The Left’s vision of temporality is a linear structure of historical progress that proceeds from ‘a past’ to ‘a future.’ Left ideology is structured around an ever progressing time line. The Left always promises to make things better in the future, to fight austerity, to care for the many not the few, to bring about equality and tolerance, etc. None of this is happening at present. This leaves the Left as a promise that is supposed to fulfill itself in an imaginary ‘tomorrow.’
He omitted mention of the fact that they never deliver because that would mean there would be no further misperceived need for them.

Then he continues making pretty much the same case for the right, only, just like a cement-brained fogey, he perpetuates the bit about fascism being the right wing's thing... just as though he is completely blind to the fascism that is fully endorsed by the left wing, AND fails to acknowledge that people like Nigel Farage are not "right wing" by virtue of not agreeing with the "left wing", that they transcend the old classifications by virtue of not being for any wing but the new one we might want to call the "actually solve problems wing".

That gets denigrated by calling it "populist". It's just plain popular and if that is a slur in a democracy your lucidity needs calling into question. Bottom line: These lizards driving their human suits need outing and real people need to take over.
