The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - INTERVIEW MICHAEL MOORE -

The Democrats? “I wouldn’t trust them to do any­thing of any sig­nif­i­cance that’s go­ing to make any­thing bet­ter. I mean the ap­pa­ra­tus, not the or­di­nary peo­ple.”

Will the young left­ists re­sist a drift totheright? “Yes, I do be­lieve that. Be­cause the forces ranged against them are so great. The world they’re be­ing handed is not a very good world and they know they are go­ing to have to fight.”

Who is the real en­emy? “Trump is not the en­emy. We are the en­emy to our­selves. Our in­abil­ity to un­der­stand that the ma­jor­ity of the Amer­i­can peo­ple agree with us is em­bar­rass­ing.”

Should the Democrats stick to the cen­tre? “Go­ing to the left is where the vic­tory is. Be­ing medi­ocre, the same old, same old: that’s how we lose.”
