” Demand destruction is exactly as it sounds. It doesn’t come back. That’s what millions of Americans can’t grasp about a patchwork approach to reopening the economy that leaves far too many staying indoors due to a lack of confidence in safety of reopening” https://t.co/mhNz5JooGy pic.twitter.com/BmsrJycYrm

I sit here this lovely morning, watching the critters frolic, enjoying a coffee and wondering yet again at the state of our collective Insanity.
Not wearing masks in public??
We continue our spiral into the hell that is coming cause we all (less 3 or 4) want to believe its not that bad. That the tainted fuckups that are in charge, know, with certainty the way forward.
I’m looking at 5 young pigs and 2 rabbits, that between them, would do a better job of leading forward.
Business as usual, carry on.
The Masks Masquerade by Nassim Taleb
To Celebrate Obama day. By Ben Norton. Just another shit head who managed to buff up his image better than the current shit head who doesn’t care. There is nothing to go back to that wasn’t tainted PR.
How Beijing cultivated Wall Street’s giants. By Clive Hamilton and Mareike Ohlberg. Like pigs to a trough.
To go forward, we need an entirely new paradigm, and that will be very difficult. Tech WILL NOT SAVE US, wishfully romanitising a past falsehood will not save us, worshipping at the neoliberal capitalist alter of ass fucking will not save us. Rolling up our sleeves and getting to it might.
Who’s with me?!?!?!?
