The Demand of 2020: Law and Order

This brings me to 2020 and what should be its defining issue, which is crime. Trump’s election, and his policies eliminating a century of business regulation, have thrown gasoline on the fire of a business crime wave unparalleled in our history.

That’s not capitalism. That’s not even socialism. It’s kleptocracy. It’s Russia.”
