"Marx was never wrong about capitalism and politics.  Trump will go down in history as the President that put an end to Neoliberalism.  He will not do it on purpose, but by Karma.  He has too much faith in our "privatized"…"

Donald Trump and the Arc of History. (a stoned rant)

Posted on May 21, 2018 at 9:11am 8 Comments

We have to ask ourselves, what and how will the world think 300 or 400 years from now? What real difference will Donald Trump have made from that perspective?

These are big questions, but Marxism can offer one tool to examine that. I'll leave this question for others to respond to.

But if we want to analyze this, we have to have a deep understanding of…

2018! What could possibly go right?

Posted on January 26, 2018 at 12:08am 7 Comments

Up until now, my motto for this year has been, "2018! What could possibly go wrong?"  In two words: Donald Trump. And so, we collectively have come to expect the worst as normal. And yet today, as I was reading Michael Wolff's Fire and Fury, I actually began to be an optimist.  Let me explain.

I admit it. I've been on Facebook entirely too much for the holiday season, and in part that's meant lurking in conservative chat hangouts. Occasionally, I will actually engage.  Better than 60% of the time, I'm probably snarky because they're spouting the usual party BS, but lately I've just been getting on their cases. Frankly speaking, it's been getting a little bit alarming. There is a collective social / psychological disorder known as conservative outrage…

Dear Donald,

You know that I hate you and despise you in so many ways. You do nothing but lie all the time. You are a con man, and you're only interested in yourself. But most of all, you really don't know the simplest things about how to run something like the US Government.

Now that I've gotten that off my chest, let's say (just for a moment) that you really want to make America great again. Actually, your options are getting more limited every day, what with the investigations by Robert…

I think I got that and it's a worthy tactic.

I'm often confused anyway. 8-/
