I agree that some things are not so planned as conspiracy theorists would like, but there is a very obvious case where the insurrection and its crackdown are both manufactured (if not quite orchestrated).

Propagandizing the population into supporting right-wing politics, setting up far-right militias across the country, and disrupting labor organizing and welfare programs are very useful for the bourgeoisie, it secures their power through diffuse repression. On the other hand, it can grow out of its usefulness if it destabilizes things (and in that case, it provides a third use - legitimizing the popular credentials of the government by cracking down on the terrorist right). It's clear that the far-right movement that led to the capitol riot was intentionally created, seeded, and sometimes steered by the big bourgeoisie and three letter agencies. It would have happened no matter what due to the momentum of the evangelical right. But on the other hand at the point that these people think they can or should coup the state, they're in conflict with the state and capitalist interests and need to be pruned back (or, promoted, recruited, etc.).

The third benefit i mention is also built into the two-party system - republicans start wars, democrats continue them, republicans remove protections on the working class, democrats shrug their shoulder and tell us to vote harder. If you can build a security panic among the moderate liberals and the left, you gain a ton of previously unavailable support for increasing repression and surveillance, and you can also make them so much more glad (like others mention, like an abused person) for the really limp centrist Biden.

One last thing is that the preparation for securing/building back American production and military critical supply chain benefits from pacifying the rabid small-government, anti-planning and pro-chaos elements in the government. They need a tight ship and the ability to match China's maneuverability.

I agree with the AI here because it's purpose as it says is to create context rather than flooding us with information without the ability to understand it. The blast of information has been chaos and constantly misused to spread disinformation and misinformation to the masses that's been taken as "fact" as well as shit like "alternative facts". Actual information must be curated and create sensible narratives tracing it's origins and source following it to it's latest point to prevent misuse of information. I'm all for AI control of info so long as it's Algo can track it's source and follow through with a timeline of information and clarify and discard "junk" info blasts meant to confuse the masses which is what's happening today. News is basically blasting us with unrelenting info including "junk" which leads to confusion and false narratives to control the population from coming to a sound understanding which it can use as an informative call, especially for political action.

Maybe but my skepticism comes from the potency of AI itself. People seem to think it's bigger than it is, of course it is also capable of being an effective way to spam the fuck out of everything but I think that there is a sort of limit or something, growth isn't inherently exponential after all.

Today I was talking to a relative who's a lawyer and he said something that completely floored me. He's filing for a mistrial for his client and you'd think court transcripts are a matter of public record, right? Apparently not, they're copyrighted by the court reporter who makes them, and she wants over a thousand fucking dollars to "prepare" the transcripts for him. I can't wrap my head around that. A public trial for your client that you defended and you have to pay some private company over a thousand dollars to produce official transcripts for it so you can properly do your job? Can't wait to see what wonders await us as the rest of the state gets auctioned off

The U.S. stopped Nordstream but is simultaneously throwing its money into a quagmire. The end goal is having nuclear superiority in a hypothetical hot war. This would be a massive reward if they actually pulled it off.

Mississippi Republicans pass bill to create separate, unelected court in majority-Black city
Mayor of Jackson, Mississippi, calls proposed law ‘some of the most oppressive legislation in our city’s history’
>The Republican-dominated Mississippi house of representatives has passed a bill to create a separate, unelected court system in the city of Jackson that would fall outside the purview of the city’s voters, the majority of whom are Black.
>The bill, which local leaders have likened to apartheid-era laws and described as unconstitutional, would also expand a separate capitol police force, overseen by state authorities. The force would expand into all of the city’s white majority neighborhoods, according to Mississippi Today. Jackson’s population is over 80% Black.
>Speaking after House Bill 1020 [http://billstatus.ls.state.ms.us/2023/pdf/history/HB/HB1020.xml] passed on Tuesday evening, Jackson’s mayor Chokwe Lumumba branded the proposed law “some of the most oppressive legislation in our city’s history”.
>“It’s oppressive because it strips the right of Black folks to vote. It’s oppressive because it puts a military force over people that has no accountability to them. It’s oppressive because there will be judges who will determine sentences over people’s lives. It’s oppressive because it redirects their tax dollars to something they don’t endorse nor believe in,” Lumumba said.
>The bill passed largely along party lines in a 76-38 vote and will now travel to the state senate, where Republicans also hold a significant majority. The passage was preceded by an intense, four-hour floor debate in which members of the state’s Black caucus made impassioned pleas to reject the legislation and compared the bill to the state’s Jim Crow-era constitution of 1890.
>The legislation was proposed by house Republican Trey Lamar, who is white and represents a district in the state’s north-west, which is majority white.
>Lamar, who does not live in Jackson, has cited county court backlogs and crime rates in the city as his motivation for the proposed law. During floor debate, Lamar was asked if any of his constituents had asked for the bill. He replied: “I don’t live in Jackson … but you know what I like to do … I like to come to Jackson because it’s my capital city.”
>The bill, which is over 1,000 pages long [http://billstatus.ls.state.ms.us/documents/2023/pdf/HB/1000-1099/HB1020IN.pdf], would expand Jackson’s existing capitol complex improvement district, which is patrolled by the state’s capitol police and currently covers parts of the city’s downtown that house state government buildings. The district’s expansion would cover areas in the city’s north, which, according to local press, include entertainment and shopping neighborhoods.
>The new court district would feature two judges directly appointed by Mississippi’s supreme court chief justice, Michael K Randolph, who is white. There would be two prosecutors, appointed by the state attorney general, Lynn Fitch, a white Republican. And two public defenders appointed by the state defender’s office.
>Proposed amendments offered on Tuesday included calls to make the judges residents of the Jackson area and to compel elections for the positions. Both amendments failed.
>The proposed bill is the latest in a line of extreme legislation in the state, which last year introduced a sweeping anti-critical race theory law, which met vocal opposition from the state’s Black caucus.
>Jackson has also suffered from a series of water outages due to ailing infrastructure, which has been chronically underfunded by the state for years. Black residents in the poorest parts of the city have been disproportionately affected.
>In November last year, the city’s water system was taken under federal government oversight after the Environmental Protection Agency found the city in violation of the Safe Drinking Water Act.
