I came across this published dissertation that while symptomatic of the state of academic process in terms of using some rather tired methods, it also showed that some interesting ideas do happen.
Under neoliberalism, Schools of Management at least in the non-US context, can tolerate some interesting research and where occasionally, heterodox ideas can be explored, like New Mexico State University management professor David Boje’s explorations in postmodern theory. Needless to say, most business schools remain committed to neoliberal curricula of capitalist apprenticeship training.
Similarly, venture capital and advanced technology has toyed with a variety of ideological concepts and to imagine that an anarchist notion can combine with science beyond Kropotkin becomes still fancifully pre-modern and utopian and yet still possible despite the anachronisms.
Occupy or at least its lessons remains an example that can resist the current misogynist urge resident in many RW technocratic communities.
We do need to engage with it beyond the academic because the forces of (neo-)reaction have made it clear that they are will to ally themselves with the worst aspects of modern capitalism in order to achieve the worst of human objectives that we now see as the objectives of ethno-nationalism(sic).
Remember when Aleppo was an international crisis that had to be stopped?

America you don't really want to go to war.

The Russia wants to eat us alive. The Russia's power mad. She wants to take
our cars from out our garages.
Her wants to grab Chicago. Her needs a Red Reader's Digest. Her wants our
auto plants in Siberia. Him big bureaucracy running our fillingstations.
As per usual, I've misunderstood what the links were provided in the articles - GINA already is law. What is proposed will change it substantially. Here's the Wikipedia cheat sheet on current law
Before celebrating repeal, let's establish what Godwin's Law actually was, and, more importantly, was not. First, Godwin's Law was not a prohibition or condemnation of mentioning Hitler or Nazis or the Holocaust. Heck, it's not even a claim that you lose a debate if you mention Hitler. But...even if it were: So the eff what? Surname aside, Godwin had no more authority over what gets posted on the internet and the effect of posts on the internet than you or I.
