Idea of post-Trump ‘truth commission’ is ‘torn from a page in a George Orwell novel’
“Classes struggle, some classes triumph, others are eliminated. Such is history…”
FoxNews–The idea, mooted by some Democrats and liberals, of a South Africa-style Truth and Reconciliation Commission after President Trump’s term of office of complete would be less about reconciliation than “revenge,” author J.D. Vance told “Tucker Carlson Tonight” Monday.
Former Labor Secretary Robert Reich tweeted Saturday that such a commission would “erase Trump’s lies, comfort those who have been harmed by his hatefulness, and name every official, politician, executive, and media mogul whose greed and cowardice enabled this catastrophe.”
“A revolution is not a dinner party, or writing an essay, or painting a picture, or doing embroidery; it cannot be so refined, so leisurely and gentle, so temperate, kind, courteous, restrained and magnanimous. A revolution is an insurrection, an act of violence by which one class overthrows another.”
