FINTAN O’TOOLE – Over more than two centuries, the United States has stirred a very wide range of feelings in the rest of the world: love and hatred, fear and hope, envy and contempt, awe and anger. But there is one emotion that has never been directed towards the US until now: pity.
MEL GURTOV – The President of the United States is a criminal. Iâ€™m not referring to the twenty-odd investigations of him currently underway for violations of the Constitution, obstruction of justice, and collaboration with the Russian election attack, among other misdeeds. No, Iâ€™m referring to his and his administrationâ€™s intentional and reckless pursuit of national policies that condemn American and the worldâ€™s citizens to environmental destruction and the end of life as we know it.
