Gravity has to be Jupiterlike in the world my son inhabits.
Everything he touches is pulled with remarkable speed to the floor.

Neither the , nor the economies are true capitalist economies.

They are two sides of the coin.
The China model benefitting control, the American model benefitting control.

But, at the end of the day both are in that they destroy the equally effectively. The China model does it through command and control efficiency gains. The American model through sheer profligacy.

I was thinking about that video clip you posted where a cop got shot by an intoxicated man hip firing his rifle.

Was the shooter a veteran? Did we teach him to fight that way?

@Uair I think the idea is it levels the playing field some v. Someone w/a handgun in close quarters.

They say there is no such thing as a perpetual motion machine.

They fail to appreciate they're living on it.

@peterrelph If it keeps moving after humans has passed on, for all intents and purposes, it’s a perpetual motion machine, as the intent behind any machine is it’s usefulness to humans. Which, may sound anthropocentric. But without anthro, what use for machines?

I have a 6yr old.

I have no clue what we're calling his generation.

Perhaps that's intentional because the will be uninhabitable before he's an adult.

Maybe I'm wrong. I sure hope so.

If I am, I suggest we call his generation the .

Who thinks that when the economy seriously goes upside down and their assets are worth less than their debts on the assets(which it will soon enough due to Energy cost of Energy and no good oil replacement), people are just going to watch as the bank takes their homes from them?

Hmmm? Would you just watch yourself get put on the street?

There's a reason it's called the "thin blue line." It's fucking thin.

Perhaps we should start calling all us proles the

@trabex Few people really understand the cause of the Great Depression. It was kicked off by a spike in coal prices, wherein the cost of extracting it became more than it was worth.

Oil hadn't come on line yet. We had a war that killed over 60 million people. Then, oil came on line domestically after we figured out how to fuel our militaries with it. Boom times for a while. The boom is obviously over.

There's nothing waiting in the wings to replace it.

Good times.

Ian Welsh, on point per usual.

Hmm. Let's see?
What can America do today if a crisis were to come along?

Finacialization won't help us survive a crisis.
Hollywood propaganda won't help.
The service industry is no big help.
Giant monocrops? Not likely.
Tons of cows and chickens, we got that going for us, but they're all locked up in CAFOs and stuffed full of antibiotics which, when the shit hits the fans will be giant pestilence corrals.

What a pathetic shell of an excuse for a country.

There are too many people on the planet.

This is axiomatic.

But because a few fucking piece of shit nazis agree with this self-obvious statement we can no longer have a productive discussion about it because all people want to talk about are the few fucking nazis who talked about it.

Can we please appreciate how wrong that is?

Can we appreciate how horribly rhetorical "point scoring" has damaged productive discourse?

I’m beginning to get the distinct impression that leftists who care about the environment enough to do actually get off their ass and do something about it are a miniscule minority.

Most seem more interested in virtue signaling their love for humanity while we fill our nest so full of shit our children drown in a boiling vat of it.

And honestly, I think the IDPOL cancel culture just has a lot of people too scared to speak out for fear of being labeled an eco-fascist.

It’s crazy.

There won’t be any people to love in a decade or two if we don’t get our environmental shit together. And it is going to hit the marginalized groups the hardest, first.

We don’t have the luxury of choosing our battles anymore people. We ALL have to be warriors. We ALL have to be Warriors. And, we ALL have to be

@asbestos The profit motive we've been thoroughly conditioned to. Which, is basically the mantra greed is good.

Capitalism is little more than an ideological hangover produced from a time long past when low hanging fruit was everywhere for the taking and people thought it would never disappear.

The fruit is gone, folks. If we ever want it back, capitalism won’t take us there.

@dirkblank You're welcome. It's the meaning of life as far as I'm concerned. Learning as much as we can so we can pass it on to others.
