The idea that we should trust the security of our digital spaces to private companies that have no accountability except to themselves is ridiculous.

In Charlottesville, Americans were forced to reckon with the reality that we live in a country where white supremacists can parade openly, and without condemnation from the White House.  We allow for the slaughter of unarmed black children and the mass incarceration of people of color.  A black President who had to be publicly perfect for eight years was followed by a white President who is habitually dishonest.  So many Americans were lulled into complacency by the progress that Obama’s presidency signaled, and the symbol he represented.  Yet all gains can easily be lost, particularly in a society stacked against anyone who threatens the dominant order.  Lee has been trying to tell us this for more than 30 years.  He’s hoping we’re ready to listen.

You’ve said this album is your last recording of Bach.  Is this tour a victory lap?
I don’t have any plans for immediate demise.  I’m not suffering from an illness that is fatal, other than being alive.  I’m committed to thinking about cultural and social impact because that’s what I feel we need in the world at this time: to make sure that culture has an equal seat at the table as politics and economics.  I don’t think there’s anything more important I can do, and I will devote the rest of my life to thinking in this way.

“People ask me what I want to be remembered for; and I generally say peace and human rights,” he says.  “I think it’s a basic right of a human being to have a home that’s decent in which to raise children, and to have an adequate amount of health care and to have an adequate amount of education to take advantage of whatever talent God may have given them.”

The continuing efforts by the U.S. Department of Justice and the U.S. intelligence community are a useful reminder to Trump, Putin and the rest of the world.  Whatever the fallout from the Helsinki summit, no one man ultimately controls the enforcement of America’s laws or the defense of its national security.  And nothing Trump says or does will change that.

And while pictures of leaders embracing are great and make people feel good, people have to ask themselves, Are these meetings really making us safer as a country , or are they not?  The real question for the President is, Are we going to pretend they got rid of [the nuclear threat], or are we going to make certain that whatever agreement is reached, this will not be a threat to the American people or to U.S. allies?

International relations are not a poker game.  In a world of “every nation for itself”  —  a G-zero world  —  it’s harder than ever to accomplish anything ambitions without allies.  Trump’s indiscriminate use of “I dare you to fight” tactics with friends and foes alike is eroding not only traditional alliances but also the institutions those alliances have sustained over many decades.  Over the long term, that’s bad for the U.S. and bad for the world.
