French Revolution 2018-2019. Finally the Cataclysm That Leads To Global Revolution?

I spent a good part of last night, in between caring for a sick vomiting child, and this morning perusing Twitter and some websites. The scenes and descriptions were alternately exhilarating and nauseating, empowering and confusing, stirring and disconcerting. Perhaps how it was to many citizens of Paris in 1789, or again in the Spring of 1871 during the Paris Commune.

It is a Conundrum

When the government is owned and controlled by corporate oligarchs (like some sort of feudal lord and master), how can politics offer a path to social and economic reclamation and restoration of the ecosystem? Add in the distortion of corporate media and it seems like checkmate.

Why public grave dancing should not be censored.

Some of you are young enough not to remember the days before the internet. In those days, the media could muffle public outcries, turn a blind eye to protests.

All I can say is anyone who thinks the Democratic Party can be reformed is either a fool or a sheepdog. The Democrats are like Trump in that no matter how many times I convince myself that they can't get much worse, they manage to make a liar out of me.

Scientific discovery causes trouble for identity politics.

Greeting fellow swampers and those who prefer to remain dry.

It has been a while since I shared with you some new insights gained from the world of genetics and political diversions. Fear not, your diligent swamp observer has been busy in the past few weeks (after digesting a really large pre-thanksgiving meal).

Ruling Class Treason

"We don’t grasp internally what an oligarchic class is finally about, or how venal and morally bankrupt they are. We need to recover the language of class warfare to grasp what is happening to us. And we need to shatter this self-delusion that somehow if, as Obama says, we work hard enough and study hard enough, we can be one of them."
