Absolutely. What a bullshit detector! While recognising the plutocratic catastrophe of Reaganism, he nails Brand Obama with his Wall Street welfare and imperial hypocrisies, from the Middle East to Afghanistan. He’s bang-on too about incarceration as the continuation of racism and impoverishment by other means: make no mistake, prison is power politics. An American Amos for sure - unmasking the self-serving myths of American exceptionalism, in the face of oligarchy, full of compassion for the poor and oppressed. A good day for this expat.
