textThere Goes the Rule of Law by Bill Moyers
Trump weaponized and disfigured the rule of law by making the Dept of Justice go after his political opponents and pardoned white collar criminals to show white collar crime does not exist at all. The constitutional state is being replaced by the security state. The security state is marked by the generalization of fear, the de-politiczation of citizens and the repetition of the big lie....

text"We do not live in capitalism" by Wolfgang Belitz and Yves Wegelin
After the transition to Atlantic turbo-capitgalism, almost nothing can be recognized from the earlier times of the initiatives of the social market economy. In this situation, the counter-factual and fact-immune creed of all conservatives is enmeshed in a deep unconsciousness about the world.
