The media has shown their excitement over President Biden taking office, but the new cover of Jacobin magazine paints the former-VP as a Christlike figure, hovering about black citizens in masks.
The cover art by Masha Krasnova-Shabaeva has Biden soaring high the citizens, who are all worshipping the Democrat leader below the faces of Barack Obama, Bill and Hillary Clinton (with an angelic theme.)
A more detailed description published was “Biden’s larger-than-life, bare-chested figure is shown surrounded by ‘holy spirits’ of Twitter and ‘saints’. The latter include kneeling Democrat leaders in the US Congress, Dr. Anthony Fauci, fawning journalists and manager-class devotees eagerly consuming the ‘holy scripture’ from what is probably the latest Barack Obama memoir. The former president himself is shown as a six-winged seraphim bracketed by the likewise angelic Hillary and Bill Clinton, with the trio gazing benignly from the heavens. A crowd of mask-wearing suburban laymen on Earth celebrate Biden’s ascension. A pair of Reaper drones complete the picture, providing a clear hint for the doubtful that the image should be taken with a grain of salt.”
“The important thing is the new generation that has been galvanized, and that generation is committed to trying to discover, through the course of the twenty-first century, a democratic path to socialist transformation,” says Leo Panitch, Jacobin.
“And increasingly, I think, the need for that will become obvious, because the logic of capitalism today is producing the type of ecological crisis that could only be solved by democratic-socialist planning. So the attempt to discover this by the new generation is incredibly important — whether they will, in fact, discover how to do this, only time will tell.
