"Useful for the current turn of US imperialism", by which I meant the Middle East policy of the present Trump administration. Overall, it would be useful for US imperialism to have Trump assassinated and a new regime installed but it's never one man and he himself is a product of capitalist decomposition.
In another thread, Baboon made the above observation that Trump is a product of decomposition. This seems unquestionably true. But if Trump is a product of decomposition what is Obama a product of? Is he also a product of decomposition? That doesn't seem quite as right. Can anyone make this case? We could of course always broaden this out and ask, what about May, Macron, Trudeau, Sanders, Corbyn, etc.? What do we mean when we say this?
