Hillary Clinton's book has a clear message: don't blame me | Thomas Frank | Opinion | The Guardian
She seems to have been almost totally unprepared for the outburst of populist anger that characterized 2016, an outburst that came under half a dozen different guises: trade, outsourcing, immigration, opiates, deindustrialization, and the recent spectacle of Wall Street criminals getting bailed out. It wasn’t the issues that mattered so much as the outrage, and Donald Trump put himself in front of it. Clinton couldn’t. [...] But by and large, Clinton’s efforts to understand populism always get short-circuited, probably because taking it seriously might lead one to conclude that working people have a legitimate beef with her and the Democratic party. &! &!

Donald could also be interpreted as a backlash (white, latino, black, .. BAME) that also the black guy didn't make it better for us (the workin folk) and HRC campaign was all about 'its all good.'

How The Democratic Party BETRAYED Workers & Its Base - THOMAS FRANK Interview Part 1 - YouTube
Dems doubled down on betrayal of labour - // chimes w Mark Blyth and Matt Taibbi assessment. - propaganda game for HRC! - professional class could not accept Bernie. DNC adopted professional class, abandoned working class (left behind, picked up by Trump at the ballot box after Sanders was gone). [...] Dems wiped out! Now counting on Trump to screw it up. That is their strategy! [...] also the draining the swamp, no accountability in the big league game - see nassim talebs skin in the game. see bank bailouts nobody went to jail. sank economy, sank the world, the working poor and middle class have to pay for it. and 1-10% ask for tax cut and get it (trickle-down) ... Austerity. There is no deterrent from white and blue collar crime - financial crime, fraud, like accounting. GFC after-math is precedent, not deterrent from greed. //

"Democrats Would Rather Lose Than Win With A Progressive"-Former Sanders Official Nick Brana Pt 2 - YouTube
Democrats fought & stole it from Bernie because they rather would lose to GOP/Trump than move to the left progressives. // See also book Thomas Frank - Liberal - & Matt Taibbi on GOP and in general the establishment - $ - choosing the candidate not the voter electorate and journalists feeding themselves co-opting into the game then wondering why they are called fake and luegenpresse. And Mark Blyth mentioning Bill Clinton finished what Reagan could not ( Surrender: How the Clinton Administration Completed the Reagan Revolution by Michael Meeropol (Paperback) - https://www.yo​​?v=a0q_Ww1q1j8. And Obama did not fight GOP in public, he preserved the status quo, did not upset the DNC elite and establishments going to the left and much more progressive and then there was the Drone Warfare.

... apart from teaching algo's, people have to be taught too - to think about the third factor that puts everything in question. algo's are about the absolute solution to problem x. thus we become blind to factor x, the third factor, the black swan (see GFC, we are not in a bubble, houseprices never reverted back to the mean). Narrative, doubt (zweifel), intuition - vs - algo's outcome. Without narrative, what world is that, where we just have results only? No narrative (linearity), no grammar. What world is that?

Jakob Augsteins Kolumne zu Merkels Schweigen im NSA-Skandal - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Noch sonderbarer ist das Schauspiel der konservativen Publizisten, die sich schützend vor eine versagende Regierung stellen: Die Überwachung durch Amerikaner und Briten sei erstens nicht neu, zweitens nicht schlimm, diene, drittens, unserem Schutz und viertens lasse man auf die amerikanischen Freunde nichts kommen. Beispiele sind Springers "Welt" und "Welt am Sonntag", wo Edward Snowden ein "Verräter" ist und alle Kritiker der US-Politik endlich "wieder einmal dem plumpen Antiamerikanismus freien Lauf" lassen wollen. Und die "Bild am Sonntag", die ein Gespräch zwischen Außenminister Guido Westerwelle und dem scheidenden US-Botschafter Philip Murphy veröffentlicht, das durch seine vernebelnde Belanglosigkeit beeindruckt. >>> Es geht nicht um Sicherheit, es geht um Macht ... [...] auch gegenüber einem angelsächsischen Verständnis von Freiheit, das sich von seinen Wurzeln weit entfernt hat.
