Love your stuff as always, Caitlin. Can’t help but wonder whether Jill Stein, if elected, would have had sufficient power to implement at least some of her great policies. We’ve seen what has happened to other idealistic reformers (Obama, Trudeau) once they get in office. Their actual policies turn out to be essentially the same as their neocon predecessors. Before worrying about getting a decent leader elected, we’ve got to figure out who the hell has stolen our democracies and how the levers of actual power operate.
