you can go pretty far as a left-adjacent twitter / podcast / substack person by simply upholding the exact opposite of whatever you think the liberal mainstream believes on a given day. but it should be obvious that this has nothing to do with materialism. "elite overproduction" and other laschian concepts are not a theory of history.
also fuck glenn greenwald.
we are, all of us, precipitously close to our 'normal lives' becoming very serious and genuinely mortal disaster. we have to be very clear-eyed about this!
there are no systems in place to save us, they have all been scrapped and sold for salvage. one weather event, one bit of police attention, one weight on the scale…we have to prepare.
and a lot of that means getting stronger and more resilient for ourselves and our friends, even (especially) when its hard
mask-off radical liberalism will say "we should abandon red states to freeze cause they're all racists anyway."
for liberals, the lesson of the last four years was that "the people" are stupid and unworthy of democracy.
here's an NYT opinion piece arguing that literacy and critical thinking are too dangerous to encourage:
love 2 watch consent get manufactured in real time
"Foreign troops to stay in Afghanistan beyond May deadline"
"with the new U.S. administration, there will be tweaks in the policy, the sense of hasty withdrawal which was prevalent will be addressed and we could see a much more calculated exit strategy"
"A State Department representative said Biden was committed to bringing a “responsible end to the ‘forever wars’... while also protecting Americans from terrorist and other threats.”"
