But the dialectic never dies, and out of the Republican electoral swindle
of the Afro-Americans will come an enormous crisis of legitimation, that
not even the Rev Jesse can disguise.

As for the Mayan prophecies, I think the important thing to bear in mind is
that fortune tellers do not get time correct.  For instance Wilde and Bosie
were assured by a card reader that Wilde's fateful prosecution of the
Marquis of Queensbury would turn out well. Oscar proceeded with his case
and the rest is history. However one century later the card reader could be
said to be correct could he not?

When I hear of people looking into the seeds of time to tell which grain
will grow and which will not, I am reminded of what the Spaniards said
about the Inca priests who couold hear the voices of the gods. The
Spaniards said, "They hear nothing to their own good".
