While I am not a great believer in grand conspiracy theories, I have a serious conspiracy theory about what is going on behind the façade of U.S. politics.
No objective person can fail to see that the presidential election is currently the main form of the class struggle in our country.
The political terrain is treacherous and corporate money is flooding into right-wing Super PACS waging a racist, scorched earth policy against President Barack Obama.
The class struggle, rather than stopping during an election, actually intensifies.
This fight needs to be looked at in the context of the bigger, rougher national argument over what kind of country and what kind of people we are going to be.
