New opened eyes

Susan Sontag is the last, quality “public intellectual” the US has produced.

3% of socialists for neolib Buttigieg. What would Rosa Luxemburg think?!

Splinter News was shut down. A quick history of corporate overlords shutting down historic entities:

East India Company 1600-1874
Edsel 1956-1959
Splinter 2017-2019

One Splinter writer, Emma Roller,  did her “proudest work” for “vulture capitalists goons.”

The Splinter writers occupy a “contradictory class location”: neither prole nor owner of capital. (See E O Wright + a nod to Jeet Heer).

2 years is about the average life-span of a leftwing publication. It’s odd to hear its writers blame private equity ownership now when they accepted their paychecks for two years without a peep of disdain for neolib financing.

And, to be honest, it was surprising to learn AOC paid neolib prices for a posh haircut.

Trump’s next wife will come from Turkey.

Neolib Obama defended the Kurds. Trump “the Peacemaker” does not.

Purity politics is for religionists. I don’t know why an intelligent person like Warren feels a need to indulge in it.

Telos

On a serious note, Leninists historically tend to be anti-sex, anti-pleasure.

The Impeachniki are funny in their growing hysteria. Pelosi is smarter than all of them.

If NY State has its way, Trump’s money will only be safe in the Iranian national bank.

US and Iran are panto enemies. The “GREAT SATAN” versus the “TERRORIST STATE”. Each side benefits from the existence of the other. They deserve each other.

Trump means treason in Ukrainian.

“Neoliberal” captures all the Evil in the world: racism, sexism, fascism, heterosexism, classism, etc. It’s the Swiss army knife of woke critique.

In reality, it is really, really, super-late capitalism.

In a few billion years, when the sun expands during its own death throes, the Earth will be a burnt rock and, eventually, it will be consumed by the sun.

D. C. B. A.-25

Bernie stans are laughable caricatures.

MAGAts are simply debased human beings.

Neoliberalism will prevail because today’s national populists are largely stupid and violent, more prone to turn on each other than on whatever conspiratorial enemy of the moment that is their fixation.

Bern’s net worth is the least of his problems.

The Devil is more likely to answer Franklin Graham’s prayers.

At least Meghan McCain is open in her defense of the only thing that gives her a platform: her last name. Without this last name, she would be nothing.

It’s hard to get worked up about rich people on a deadly thrill climb.

Black No. 1

Mr Assange is releasing the emails as soon as he receives them from the Russians.

People were never lonely before neoliberalism.

One can carbon date the beginning of neoliberalism precisely: the recording of the Beatles’ “Eleanor Rigby.”

Brexit is the sound of wealth leaving the UK.

The poverty of sovereignty.

Schadenfreude is never wrong.
