Bob Dole, 1923-2021: Democrats mourn death of right-wing Republican

[wsws.org]

{The two-party system has been a machine for the defense of corporate America for more than a century. The Democrats fear that the embrace of fascistic methods, expressed most clearly in the January 6 attack on the Capitol, means the breakup of that system and risks opening the door for an intervention from below. This raises the danger, from the standpoint of the capitalists, that the working class, not the fascists, will play the most powerful role.

Biden said, in his remarks Thursday, “Bob and I, like many of us here, we disagreed on a number of things, but not on the fundamental things.” This would be truth-telling and not mere boilerplate, if Biden had gone on to enumerate those “fundamental things”: the defense of the capitalist system, the assertion of the global interests of American imperialism, the suppression of the class struggle and the exclusion of the working class from any role in political life.

{In the arc of Dole’s very long life, he went from nearly being killed in a battle against German troops directed by Adolf Hitler, to seeing a fervent admirer of Hitler take the leadership of his own party and attempt a fascist coup against the very building where Dole spent his political career.}

It's only ironic if your indoctrinated.

Power concentrates and then when it becomes too concentrated it becomes so corrupted that the system must be torn down and rebuilt but it is always rebuilt in the same way, a system that concentrates power in the hands of the few until it becomes so corrupted that the system has to be torn down again. It's a vicious cycle that humans seem to be too stupid to escape.
