In all humility, I think Americans have become profoundly selfish and self-absorbed, and the United States’ influence is deeply corrosive to other cultures. I wish I had something funny to say about this but I don’t. Politics has become a zero sum game played by people who will never feel the consequences of their hubris and arrogance. Frankly, I’m frightened for us. On Labor Day, which is meaningless in a country determined to destroy unions and the foundation of its once-stable middle class, I offer you this not as a celebration, and not because I believe Americans are about to wake up and see what we have done, and what our government has done in our name. No. I have lost all hope of that, but I think that the horror is about to dawn on us, and the consequences are coming. Support for the administration will not protect you.
