It is obvious that the Reaganite/neocon alliance that ruled the US between 1980 and 2008 is trying to make a comeback. The most immediately important issue in US politics right now is to prevent them from doing so. For readers who believe in voting, I would suggest voting in the 2022 mid-terms and Republican primaries in 2024 for the most Trumpist candidates possible (whether it’s The Donald himself, one of his kids or circle of associates, or someone else) and against anyone who leans toward reviving neocon hegemony. The idea would be to cockblock the Reaganites/neocons from ever returning or, if they did, fix it so they would face a Congress comprised mostly of Democrats and Trumpists. Not that such would be an ideal situation, as the Trumpists are way too conciliatory to the neocons, but beggars can’t be choosers.
