  1. Just a reminder of Kimberly before taking the red pill:
  2. Probably a good time to brush up on right wing Accelrationism.
  3. President Biden has a lot to be proud of. From an economic perspective, his industrial policy is spot on. Restoring our diplomatic image was masterful. He moved us away from the abyss. But it is time for him to withdraw with honor so he may be celebrated by Americans who care about this nation. I have no doubt he is trying his best to beat Trump, but unfortunately his best will not be enough.
  4. Labour gets a second chance after Blair’s disastrous neoliberal/New Labour/Third Way/Thatcher-lite policies. Austerity is murder, especially when it is “austerity for thee and not for me.” Here’s hoping Starmer restores dignity to the common people of the British Isles. Perhaps Starmer can be an inspiration to our politicians as they attempt to resist the dismal tide of far right authoritarianism sweeping the globe.
  5. The Butterfly (Ballot) effect:
  6. Immune, immune, immune.
  7. The Fishhook theory is much closer to reality than the Horseshoe theory. Centrist mollification of the far right has the unintended consequence of entrenching the radical right. Centrist mollification of the far right entrenches the radical right by legitimizing extremist views, shifts the Overton Window, demoralizes those opposed to the radical right, encourages further radicalization, undermines democratic norms, fragments political coalitions, and enacts policy shifts that reinforce far-right priorities. This dynamic creates a political environment where radical right ideologies gain a stronger foothold and exert greater influence over the broader political landscape. We reap what we sow.
  8. Radical Supreme Court: confirmed.
  9. As I said at the time of his election in 2020, Biden should have pledged to only one term as a caretaker President. We could have avoided the predicament we find ourselves facing in 2024.
  10. Argentina showing the world (again) how to fuck around and find out when combatting inflation. Austerity kills the patient. GDP plummets and unemployment spikes. “Argentina’s gross domestic product shrank by 5.1% compared to the same period last year, while unemployment climbed to 7.7% in the first quarter of 2024, according to reports by the National Institute for Statistics and Census (INDEC). https://t.co/aiFTGTW8br
  11. The “they” in this case may be one or two of the pro-insurrection justices __ The Sackler case was correct in the fact that the settlement wiped out victim claims without giving them a chance to challenge the decision. The Sacklers should have been forced into bankruptcy under the deal, imo
  12. Some hopeful news on the EV front, perhaps.
  13. Immaculate disinflation narrative takes hold. Dollar down as hikes become highly unlikely. Weakening labor market signaling slowing. Headline 0.0% M/M. Core 0.2% M/M.
  14. A fire broke out backstage in a theatre. The clown came out to warn the public; they thought it was a joke and applauded. He repeated the warning, but the acclaim was even greater. I think that's just how the world will come to an end: to general applause from those wisemen who believe it's a joke. Kierkegaard, Either/Or Part 1
