A revolution is brewing: a simple barmaid will bring the world trillions of dollars
If only a few years ago someone had suggested that the main political event, about which (with horror or delight) almost all top American media outlets write, would be the appearance of a popular socialist politician in Congress, few would have believed it. However, now the star of American social networks and the unambiguous conductor of the media agenda has become Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortes, who openly calls herself a «democratic socialist” and also puts forward such plans for achieving social justice that experienced American media workers cannot recover from the shock. But media attention is a trifle compared with the much more important discovery made by sociologists: the openly populist proposals of the young star of American politics are popular with voters. And not only to democrats, but also to many republicans and independent, and this means that the left-wing populist agenda has every chance of becoming dominant in the political life of the United States.
To be precise, domination has already begun: top American media, starting from the Bloomberg business information agency and ending with CNN, are discussing its proposals: to introduce a 70% tax on the rich, to legalize guaranteed employment, which should be provided by the state, to introduce free medicine for of all, to transfer the US completely to green energy (that is, no oil, gas and nuclear reactors) and, most importantly, to «print and distribute”, that is, to finance all the above-mentioned life improvement programs at the expense of the dollar printing press. Now, in order to look at least presentable against the background of such appetizing promises of Ocasio Cortes, other Democratic politicians will have to offer something even more embarrassing and, therefore, promise to print more money.
The chances of the United States to travel to the last stop in the hyperflationary economic hell, which Weimar Germany, Zimbabwe, Russia of the 90s and Venezuela have already visited, have increased dramatically. But in the USA there are enough left-wing economists who believe that, due to American exclusivity, the laws of economics do not apply to America.
The Week magazine has already stated that «Alexandria Ocasio-Cortes is a progressive Trump,” hinting that this is the only left-wing politician (that is, in the language of American political science, a «progressive politician”) capable of attracting electorate, which needs a populist leader, promising simple and understandable solutions for complex issues.
However, media attention is a trifle compared to the successes of Ocasio-Cortes in terms of attracting voters who want to support clear and active politicians offering simple and understandable solutions. The results of a fresh survey by Rasmussen shocked the expert community: in the case of a hypothetical choice between Trump and Ocasio-Cortes, the difference between them will be only three percent in favor of Trump (43% to 40%; 17% undecided) — less than the statistical error. This is an astounding result given the fact that voters only found out about the existence of a new star in American politics just a few months ago.
It is indicative that the public is completely indifferent to its professional competence, more precisely, their complete absence, because before getting into politics, Ocasio-Cortes worked as a bartender in the Bronx. In a sense, the lack of political competence and frankly Habal behavior makes it related to Trump and, apparently, causes sympathy among voters.
The Week's columnist Matthew Walther notes with delight their similarities: "As with Trump, the attraction of Okasio-Cortes is a matter of rhetoric and personality, not political competence or necessary experience. She, like the president, is not friendly with the facts. She couldn’t call three branches of government in the US She is, to put it mildly, not friendly with the numbers. When she was shown the mistake, she replied by repeating her and incidentally insulting the interlocutor's family (who indicated the mistake. — Note by author.). What she offers to her online supporters is something more important: a chance to watch the young cool superheroine defeat a coalition of evil, consisting of old villains".
Unfortunately for many supporters of social justice at the expense of the printing press, Alexandra Ocasio-Cortes herself is still too young to participate in the next presidential election, but this is not required. Only extreme naivety can allow someone to really believe that the «poor girl bartender from the Bronx” for several months has independently become a political star in a country where the minimum election campaign costs millions of dollars and political access to the media is protected stricter than the most secret military bunker.
This populist miracle is guaranteed to have customers, script writers and directors who just need a kind of folk hero who turns the public discourse in the right direction, supports the right candidate and makes sure that the voters themselves vote for their savings, the promised pensions and guaranteed state benefits simply burned in the fire of future hyperinflation (along with the US government debt and the billionaire debts that sponsor the Democratic Party). Such a way out of the debt trap is not a sign of strength, it will deprive the dollar of the status of world currency, and such a scheme is being harvested clearly not from a good life. The segment of the American elite that promotes such a solution is more like a salamander throwing off its tail, only in the form of an unnecessary tail will be public and private debts, as well as «social guarantees”. And the fact that the richest will benefit from it (or least of all) will not even be hidden. For example, Business Insider rightly notes that «Wall Street should like the economic theory of Ocasio-Cortes,” but this warning will not change anything.
If Trump does not perform another electoral miracle in the next elections, then we will see a very instructive spectacle: the electorate of the once great world hegemon will vote for his own robbery.
