There is no right vs. left
Thu Sep 03, 2020 · 113 words

In Robert Reich’s piece There is no ‘right’ v ‘left’ (The Guardian), he makes a very convincing argument about the relationship between the oligarchs vs. the right and left.

The key points I found eye-opening are:

  1. In the past, the left wanted public investment and the right wanted free market.
  2. Oligarchs want Americans politically divided so we’re distracted from the real looting.
  3. Americans are actually divided between oligarchs and democracy.
  4. The oligarchs are pitting the right against the left.
  5. The oligarchs are stoking tribalism to distract.
  6. Opposing the oligarchs means bringing the right and the left together.
