The half measures hurt everybody. Might as well slaughter all the old proles. If they aren't willing to make actually effective lockdowns, partial lockdowns affect sectors of the economy more than others for no good reason.
That said, shit will hit the fan and they will implement lockdowns in less than a month.

>Biden stimmies only going to people who make less than 80k/year

IDK man, I could be wrong but I'm pretty sure NASA in their later years didn't have a big problem with this. Seems to me like Musk is just a conman and his meme company can't build rockets properly like they can't even build hyperloop prototypes that don't break

NASA doesn't build rockets, they contract ULA to build rockets. ULA tests every single part of a rocket independently before assembly. This design strategy has the same potential for failure but failures aren't as public or as dramatic. SpaceX's strategy is the same one that the Soviets used for the N1. And the N1 would be a success if Brezhnev didn't cancel it.

They would have had to start the R&D earlier on during the 60s. It takes a long time to develop working engines like the F1. If would have likely took them until the 80s for a successful launch if they started work on new engines in the 70s after the N1 explosions and by that point I don't think anyone would really care.

hard redpill to swallow that most people won't accept: American cancel culture actually comes protestant anglo-saxon guilt about racism on the SUBJECTIVE, ie not the institutional level. white people that claim to support the black struggle but still act racist and dehumanizing on an individual level engage in it as a way to economize their guilt and permit their anti-human behavior. at first glance from an outsider it seems like a sort of asceticism that puritan people are trying to transpose onto "non-believers", but if you actually take a closer look at these people you will see behind closed doors that they allow themselves to be racist and sexist because they have in mind that they will "offset" it by cleansing their sins through the god of cancel culture.
if you've ever seen Zizek's movie The Pervert's Guide to Ideology you will know exactly what type of guilt economism I'm talking about, but he doesn't explain it in the context of cancel culture since it wasn't fully a thing at the time.

To add to that, perhaps because of whatever the left here either prefers to be martyrs rather than get dirty in the halls of power, or believes that because of capitalist realism nothing can be gained and the best thing is to fall in line with the Democrats and so willingly allow cooptation, because all is corrupted anyways so why not go to the end, all the way.

Furthermore on a more off topic note, and this actually comes from something mentioned in an Infrared video, if the university is compared to a church, then the belated granting of honorary professorships to revolutionaries such as Newton and Davis takes on a tragic air, because was it not said that often the practice in older times was that defeated leaders would be sent to monasteries and convents to where they could live, supposedly respected, but basically stripped of all real power? Thus does this weak vindication not make it just so evident how far from real power the revolutionary left has been shoved, the established powers ever so willing to make revolutionaries honored as one would honor the relics caged in the exhibits of museum, but not to entertain them in the wielding actual power?

This is a super funny read. A bunch of upper class British nobles are being gentrified out of their country club by Chinese billionaires and silicon valley dorks.

>as coveted and rarefied as the club that hosts the US Masters, and presumably as moneyed. To this end, members would have to reapply to join, paying £100,000 for a “debenture” – in essence loaning the money to Reignwood and its owner, a Chinese billionaire named Yan Bin, for a term of 50 years. Members would also have to fork out higher annual dues: £10,000 for an individual or £16,000 for a family, where previously a family had paid about £8,000.


>The ongoing clash between Yan Bin and his club’s members has witnessed several dramatic phases: threats, lawsuits, duplicity, negotiations, truces, even death. But the tale isn’t just about the preposterousness of the wealthy. Rather, it’s impossible to learn about all this turmoil – in a place called “the Island”, for crying out loud – and not see it as an allegory. With its groves of pine and rhododendrons, its houses named Heatherbrook or Bluebell Wood or Silver Birches, and the gentle hillocks of its club’s fairways, Wentworth Estate holds dear a vision of pastoral Englishness. But since the 1980s, Wentworth has been reshaped – just like England itself – by money: first the wealth of the homegrown 1%, which considered itself immune to the turmoil of change, but which then found itself subject to the whims of the globalised capital held by the 0.001% like Yan Bin. The saga is familiar: a small locality unsettled by the arrival of an outsider. Except that the outsider is a transnational holding corporation, and the locality is Wentworth Estate, a slice of England overtaken by the world.

Honestly it's probably more that it's just a fucking job to them and they don't actually give the scarcest fuck about preservation of culture or whatever.

Greenwald stands accused by Democrats of being a closet Libertarian, having spoken in front of the Koch Brothers' Cato Institute.[19] [20] To the consternation of critics, Greenwald has spoken more than once at a Socialism Conference where he nearly gushes warmth and enthusiasm.[21][22] Greenwald has also advocated many positions libertarians would hate, such as opposing cuts to Social Security and Medicare.[23][24]

Greenwald was one of three speakers at the 2014 YAL (Young Americans for Liberty) National Convention; the other two were Ron and Rand Paul.[25] Greenwald does hold Dr. Paul in some esteem, but he laments the man's checkered past:

There are very few political priorities, if there are any, more imperative than having an actual debate on issues of America’s imperialism; the suffocating secrecy of its government; the destruction of civil liberties which uniquely targets Muslims, including American Muslims; the corrupt role of the Fed; corporate control of government institutions by the nation’s oligarchs; its destructive blind support for Israel, and its failed and sadistic Drug War. More than anything, it’s crucial that choice be given to the electorate by subverting the two parties’ full-scale embrace of these hideous programs.

I wish there were someone who did not have Ron Paul’s substantial baggage to achieve this.[26]

His opinion of Baby Doc is on point, too.[27]

As Ed Brayton has noted, many conflate Greenwald's narrow approval of select Paul positions with endorsement (something Brayton himself is often accused of). Brayton labels Greenwald's analysis of Paul as "brilliant," declaring that it "perfectly explains why I have said many of the things I’ve said about Ron Paul…it also speaks strongly to the question of how liberals should handle libertarians and libertarianism as a whole." [28]

So potent is this poison that no inoculation against it exists. No matter how expressly you repudiate the distortions in advance, they will freely flow. Hence: I’m about to discuss the candidacies of Barack Obama and Ron Paul, and no matter how many times I say that I am not “endorsing” or expressing support for anyone’s candidacy, the simple-minded Manicheans and the lying partisan enforcers will claim the opposite.[26]

In point of fact, his only political endorsements have been given to left-wing Democrats, e.g. Russ Feingold[29] and Rush Holt.[30] In 2016, Greenwald published his interview of progressive Democrat, Tim Canova, who was then challenging incumbent Debbie Wasserman Schultz in the Florida primaries. Greenwald linked to a site where contributions to Canova's campaign might be made.[31] Canova is controversial for being a militant Zionist,[32] He opposed the Iran nuclear deal,[33] accusing Wasserman Schultz of being "in on it",[34] He later changed his position on it, stating that he supported "its full implementation,"[35] only to go back to being against it shortly after.[36]

I think Greenwald was much more of a right-libertarian during the Bush years. His big thing though has been civil libertarianism (he is an ultra-liberal in that sense), with his battle axes being opposition to government surveillance, war, militarized policing, and support for privacy and First Amendment issues – which puts him on the same side as the left and right-libertarians in a lot of cases. I think nowadays he is a civil libertarian on that, but with more social-democratic views on the economy. Maybe radical left-liberal?

Done some great reporting at times. Don't think he has ever read a word of Marx in his life.

He is also a true poster's poster. He has King Kong energy. If he gets into an argument, he'll dig in his heels and post himself out of a job. He is a former lawyer and I think he posts / does journalism in the same way a lawyer would. Right or wrong, he's going to argue his case to the end of the earth. This leads to an insufferable amount of Greenwald-style sanctimoniousness, and his liberalism used to make him really gooey for the Founding Fathers (less so nowadays). I have a hard time standing him usually but he was totally right about Russiagate and I'll defend him when he's right.

I think Greenwald is a good example of somebody who hates Democrats a lot (justified), to the point of developing delusional views of the conservative world. The Republican party has one uncompromising rule, and that's that taxes MUST be cut on rich people. There's absolutely NO way for anyone with even a tiny succdem streak to survive a Republican primary. 2016 Bernie was probably as close as you can get to a non-woke left leaning candidate while still remaining viable.

He's one of Chapo Trap House's favorite punching bags. I think he's an opportunistic, careerist media sleazeball, mainly or entirely. He was part of the first-wave of Ivy League educated liberal bloggers in the early/mid-2000s and their politics was this vague pro-war "liberaltarianism." I think he was trying to do a vague social democrat thing but that didn't really work so he is adapting into neo-neoconservative critical of cancel culture and going on Joe Rogan and Glenn Beck now to sell his idea of increasing the American population to a billion people as a way of winning the Great Power Competition against China.

I think this sums up what he's about:

>Much of Yglesias’ work is simply boring (Yglesias likes writing about burritos). But it’s also somewhat stunning for its extraordinary combination of arrogance, erroneousness, and callousness. Yglesias is a perfect case study in how highly-educated people can be embarrassingly stupid, making consistently ludicrous factual and analytical statements. Yglesias muses aloud “I’d been interested to know what, if anything, is legally or practically preventing [Miami] from just expanding further and further west if anyone happens to know” (Many wrote in to point out the existence of a rather large expanse of swamp known as the Everglades.) Or he portentously announces that “in many ways, the Chipotle burrito is very similar to the iPhone.” Yglesias is perhaps the man whose work is most synonymous with the “#SlatePitch,” the intentionally irritating, click-hungry denunciation of some perfectly innocuous truth or convention (hence “The Case Against Eating Lunch Outside“).


>But if Yglesias were simply naive and pompous, one could comfortably laugh at him. However, like the similarly contrarian Nicholas Kristof, he delights in taking up noxious positions designed to unsettle liberal sensibilities and thereby prove his independence of mind (and perhaps reassure him that he is less of a bore than his C.V. implies).


>Hence articles like “Against Transparency,” in which Yglesias insists that journalists shouldn’t be able to view government email, without ever considering the potential real-world effects of giving the powerful new ways to conspire free of public accountability. One senses that Yglesias makes arguments like this with a delighted smirk, aware that he is annoying people, but convinced that their annoyance proves their irrationality rather than his intolerability.


>The worst of Yglesias’ mischievous endorsements of horrendous moral stances was his column on factory safety. Immediately after the 2013 collapse of the Bangladesh garment factory that killed over 1,000 people, Yglesias took to Slate to explain why workplace safety regulations actually inhibited the operation of free markets. Yglesias explained that high-risk jobs have high compensation, and just like people might choose to be lumberjacks, they might choose to work in highly dangerous garment factories for a premium. Thus “it’s good that different people are able to make different choices on the risk–reward spectrum.” The article was accompanied by a photograph of Bangladeshis loading dead bodies onto a truck.


[…]

>I once attended a public talk Yglesias gave on housing policy to promote on his (62-page) book The Rent Is Too Damn High. Yglesias was placed in conversation with Yale Law School professor Robert Ellickson, a bona fide expert on housing and zoning with approximately four decades of experience in the field. Goodness knows why anyone thought to pair the two up, as Ellickson is notoriously grumpy and does not suffer fools with much equanimity. The discussion was one of the most satisfying I have seen. Ellickson clearly had no idea who Yglesias was, and took pleasure in ripping Yglesias’ pamphlet to shreds for its basic economic ignorance. Ellickson practically pondered aloud why a frivolous 20-something blogger was being treated as an expert on housing, pointing out the numerous ways in which Yglesias’ arguments were flimsy and ill-considered.


>But watching Ellickson flay Yglesias, I was most struck by the fact that Yglesias was completely unfazed. Far from being ashamed at his humiliating defeat, Yglesias did not even seem to acknowledge that he was even being defeated or humiliated. He didn’t attempt to defend himself. He just… kept talking, as if the numerous arguments that had been made proving him wrong simply didn’t exist.


>This refusal to back down or admit fault is apparently characteristic of Yglesias generally. When a conservative publication interviewed him about his defense of dishonesty in politics, Yglesias simply told them “go fuck yourself,” and hung up. Recently, Yglesias tweeted a reprehensibly xenophobic remark aimed at Glenn Greenwald, unambiguously implying that Greenwald didn’t care about America because he lived in Brazil. (As is well-known, Greenwald moved to Brazil because of anti-LGBT discrimination in U.S. law, making Yglesias’ remark even more tactless.) When confronted, instead of apologizing, Yglesias doubled down, falsely accusing others of twisting his words. Yglesias is an enthusiastic practitioner of one of the most obnoxious tendencies in the human character: the belief that if people hate you, it must be because you’re right rather than because you’re an asshole. Thus when people criticize you for taking the opportunity of a deadly factory disaster to explain why workplace safety standards are Actually Not As Good As You Think, your default reaction is not contrition or self-doubt but annoyance that people fail to recognize your rationality.

If america had a billion people, it would be like british india, or the kowloon walled city. Food would be scarce, famines would occur, most people would live in abject poverty, and the collective wealth of the entire nation would be spread between 3x as many people, which would lead to squabbling, roving gangs of bandits, espionage, and a neo-chinese "chabuduo" culture. American soup kitchens would use sewer water for broth, and they would eat cats, dogs, and bats.
American competition abroad would also be lessened, because the military would he more focused on keeping peace among a billion citizens, martial law would be common, crime would go unnoticed and unpunished, and murders would go unsolved except in high profile cases.

And of course the political parties are so heavily invested in culture wars because they make real change impossible. The conservatives need radlibs demanding unpopular cultural change as much as the radlibs need Richard Spencer to pretend the alt-right is relevant. It's just a race to "own" each other. However, I think the "woke left" is destined to keep racking up culture war victories because their leaders believe their bullshit to some extent (and force symbolic concessions out of everything) while conservative grifters have to remain principled losers in order to maintain the persecution complex that fuels the right wing.

Anarcho-CIA agent Robert Evans did a series on the Portland uprising and he did make pretty frequent mention of lots of grass root groups trying to help people affected by protests and all the fires earlier last year. He also pretty frequently retweets stuff from other states mentioning mutual aid groups, which seems to be the primary mode of "grassroots organizing". It doesn't seem all that significant, but there does appear to be somewhat of an attempt to fill in the areas where the state is failing by the anarkiddies. Apparently there were ostensibly leftist groups handing out food and blankets during the Texas freeze.

An under-acknowledged thing that many people are unaware of is the explosive growth of the Amish, Mormons, and traditional Catholics. They have tons of kids and just keep growing. The limiting factor is land; these people are buying huge amounts of land to start new communities, and when that fails, they aggressively take over sympathetic small towns like the fucking Osho cult.
I guess another limiting factor (for the Catholics) is the clerical shortage. Normal Roman Catholicism is already extremely low on priests; the traditional Catholics are even pickier. Any attempts by the Vatican to fix this will be rejected by the traditional ones anyway, so they might come to a stop because they run out of priests to handle the new communities they want to start.

If you are good enough you can work remotely in another country for American companies. It's not all about the money. I'd rather just live in a less shitty country. I'm done with this country. I figure a growing number of people are as well given the growth of this hikki phenomenon. Living in a less developed area might be alright, except you might have to deal with right wingers and industrial pollution. Besudes tgat, take California for example. I've thought about living somewhere in the mountains out there, but maybe I'd lose my home or my life in a wildfire. Best to pick some place politically, and climatically chill IMO. I'm a stoner though so it kind of slims down my options.

Cuomo Advisers Altered Report on Covid-19 Nursing-Home Deaths
>New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s top advisers successfully pushed state health officials to strip a public report of data showing that more nursing-home residents had died of Covid-19 than the administration had acknowledged, according to people with knowledge of the report’s production.
>The July report, which examined the factors that led to the spread of the virus in nursing homes, focused only on residents who died inside long-term-care facilities, leaving out those who had died in hospitals after becoming sick in nursing homes. As a result, the report said 6,432 nursing-home residents had died—a significant undercount of the death toll attributed to the state’s most vulnerable population, the people said.
>The changes Mr. Cuomo’s aides and health officials made to the nursing-home report, which haven’t been previously disclosed, reveal that the state possessed a fuller accounting of out-of-facility nursing-home deaths as early as the summer. The Health Department resisted calls by state and federal lawmakers, media outlets and others to release the data for another eight months.
>State officials now say more than 15,000 residents of nursing homes and other long-term-care facilities were confirmed or presumed to have died from Covid-19 since March of last year—counting both those who died in long-term-care facilities and those who died later in hospitals. That figure is about 50% higher than earlier official death tolls.

Mao said this:

>The metaphysical or vulgar evolutionist world outlook sees things as isolated, static and one-sided. It regards all things in the universe, their forms and their species, as eternally isolated from one another and immutable. Such change as there is can only be an increase or decrease in quantity or a change of place. Moreover, the cause of such an increase or decrease or change of place is not inside things but outside them, that is, the motive force is external. Metaphysicians hold that all the different kinds of things in the universe and all their characteristics have been the same ever since they first came into being. All subsequent changes have simply been increases or decreases in quantity. They contend that a thing can only keep on repeating itself as the same kind of thing and cannot change into anything different.

https://www.marxists.org/reference/archive/mao/selected-works/volume-1/mswv1_17.htm

So the primary cause for the growth of the far right in the U.S. is not a result of internal contradictions in American society, but an outside or external force that has meddled in and disrupted this isolated, hermetically-sealed off bubble system called "the United States." That is why you hear "Russia Russia Russia" from the liberals, or on the right, "China China China" for why we're trolling them online and causing them to have meltdowns.

Also things never change in this worldview. Russia is just like the Soviet Union and the KGB is back at their dastardly tricks. The Cold War didn't even end!

Now, imagine this.

- Zion Don actually launches his MAGAPatriot Party
- The American electoral system is FTPT everywhere it counts
- Apparently, splitting the right wing vote between two parties could favour the Ds whenever they get in first place in situations like D 34%, R 33%, MAGAP 33%

BUT…

- How can you tell MAGAP will only syphon votes from the Rs and not the Ds? How many people that voted Obama in 08 and/or 12 ended up voting Don in 16 after all? How can you tell Biden voters in 20 will always vote D in the future?
- What would the Ds do then?
- Tacitly help MAGAPs in the hope they'll split only the right wing vote to their (the Ds') advantage while screeching about the resurgent Zion Don's "fascism" in the hope they'll trick again minorities, weak minded "progressives" and "leftists" and the like to back them?
- Or try and torpedo MAGAPs acting in accord with the Rs resorting to every kind of legal and judicial trickery to purge such a third party from ballot access everywhere they can?

If i was Bernie and the mythical "progressives" in the Senate i would unironically refuse to voot for anything…like anything (Raising debt ceiling, Stimulus, etc) unless they implemented like a manifesto of demands i'd drawn out which would basically be career suicide via lack of donations if they passed (20$ minimum wage with a mandate that the wage from now on tracks with inflation, Free on use universal healthcare modelled off of UK, Anonymous union drives, etc etc etc).

I'd just "stand in the schoolhouse door" basically and refuse to move even if meant the credit rating getting downgraded and red line going REALLY REALLY far down unless they actually vooted to pass my ideas.

Like Americans are still having "a 9/11 every day" and now the GOP state legislatures and these fucking "blue dog" retards are beginning to reopen on account that no ones talking about covid anymore now that trumps gone.
50% of the country due to the social-crisis and trumps ramblings will probably never get a vaccine or voluntarily take health and safety precaution because they think its for Bill gates to put microchips inside them.

Well, just to be clear, my hope is a Trump 2 Electric Boogaloo scenario would see him going full bananas not because he would champion some populist cause for real this time, but just out of spite for the political establishment. Just look at the military budget he pushed all the four years he was in power, the largest ever. So he's never really being a problem at least for the MIC. Talking about social policies, well, the right wing of the Ds - which is like to say the actual Ds, lol - we've just seen once again they're good enough to stop even a pittance like that meagre minimum wage… And don't forget the "progressives" cucking out to Geriatric Nancy while they could have held her literally in hostage if she hadn't conceded a vote on universal healthcare… My hope is that a combination of him being him - and this time with a vengeance - plus four more years of crisis and economic spoliation and a political establishment fucked beyond any chance of redemption, well that could really cripple the beast once and for all.
Anyway, if he actually wants to do shit, and let us have a bit of fun from far away, he needs to set the MAGAPatriots in motion now, cause he would already need some senators in place in 2022.

agreed. especially if the famous video isn't allowed as evidence. although I'd prefer the precedent of chauvin getting put away, i wouldn't mind a little more unrest… gets boring in minnesota winters. : - [



And to all, I know that cynicism is the status quo for both online leftism and chan culture, but I think it's too early to say that "nothing" was accomplished by the riots this summer. It may not have any governmental effects yet, but people know what they are capable of, and know that they can fight against cops and burn down police stations. It may not be tangible yet, but a lot can happen between midnight and dawn.

I'm really fucking anxious about the Derek trial on Monday. Not only cause a cop can get away with murder, but the aftermath of the trial. Would the people of Minneapolis actually stand up against it or they will do nothing?

Yeah, I think you're right. The steam/traction just isn't there since Biden got elected - everything went into getting rid of bad orange man and now that Biden has completely 180'd and the Dems have gone full let them eat cake, people are demoralized and tired.

Give it a little bit and the traction will build back up - both on the "right" and the "left", for now, though we're likely going through a quiet period.

That people will become accepting of mass unemployment, a cruel bankrupting health care system during a global pandemic, and police brutality. Just because trump is gone.

Basically this. The capitalist class are not a perfect monolith operating with a hivemind mentality. they are a whole made up of much smaller factions and splinters with different aims much like the working class.

It's completely sensible to believe that CNN / MSNBC / ABC etc which both literally profits by pandering to a (D) Vooting audience and is owned by people who are (D) Vooters themselves would be running cover for Biden.
There is pretty much no other explanation when you take into the account the fact that the vast social-crisis being caused by Covid has not been placated or helped AT ALL by bidens presidency but all the news reports is "HOW GREAT BIDEN IS DOING"

The modern American bourgeoisie have never had to quell mass labor movements during their lifetime like other places in the west and thus many are incapable of perceiving the state as an instrument of class rule because they've never had to use it to the full extent.

would you recommend reading B&R or Inventing first?

 No.108901

Blackshirts and Reds
Just because it counters the Western brainwashing about AES and has something to say about left anticommunists like Chomsky while still criticizing the actions and policy of the communist bloc countries

Don't read the Caesar book, it's amazingly retarded and simplistic. B&R is alright, but it's more like a polemic rather than a study on anything. Parenti isn't a real scholar, people just promote him because he has good takes. But you can generate those takes yourself without reading his crappy books.

Didn't the Caesar book almost won him the Pulitzer price?

I don't know what you mean by "real scholar" he is an actual professor at several universities and habilitated in Yale. If you're saying that he's not a real scholar you'd also have say that to 90% of academia that throws out tons of bullshit with dozens of methodological errors. The reason they hold up Parenti to a higher scrutiny is because he's a Marxist, if you are a neoliberal in academia you can basically straight up pull stuff out of your ass and nobody gives you a hard time.
