1/ I’m so tired of the phrase “American Exceptionalism” and the concept that America is the “greatest country on earth”. I feel it speaks to a deep narcissism within Americans and is a basis for Americans thinking that invading other countries is okay.
2/ Other countries do not exist for us to do whatever we want with them. They are not less-than. The people who live in them are just as valuable as we are.

#imperialism #AmericanExceptionalism #America
3/ This narcissism, this attitude that others aren’t impacted, don’t have a role in the world and that they are purely there to be acted on, is seen on an individual level as selfishness.

This is why white people in America don’t wear masks.

When Francis #Fukuyama, in his 1992 book, disclosed the "end of history" #thesis, he became a world celebrity.

The formulation was simple, but devastating for the left: faced with the evidence of the disappearance of the #SovietUnion, he could affirm that #communism had failed..
and that #capitalism emerged victorious as the only system that guaranteed #peace, #freedom & #equality.

However, in 2010 Fukuyama acknowledged that he had not understood the meaning of the disappearance of the Soviet Union and the #European socialist bloc.
Fukuyama had believed in the drunkard #Yeltsin (the face of the gravedigger & #thief who prevailed with blood & fire, supported by the #West, with the coup d'etat in #Moscow in 1993) and in the capacity of liberalism to satisfy human needs and, In addition, in 1992, ...

Let's start here, with this misleading article shared by the GT account.
To start. From the article:

"The theme of this year’s gathering in #Davos is “#stakeholders for a cohesive and sustainable world”. According to the forum’s website, leaders will meet to discuss ideas and improve our global progress on climate change."

theguardian.com/commentisfree/…
What is not shared is the primary focus:

"Focus of the meeting will be on renewing the concept of stakeholder #capitalism to overcome income inequality, societal division and the #climate crisis."

This #WEF release is new (Jan 14 2020) - but the focus & theme is not.

"Happy 2020. It's going to be a big year"

"Will our government and business leaders act on the triple emergency of climate, nature and poverty, or will business as usual win?...
"What would life be like in 2030 if restoring nature, stabilising our climate & making strides in human development & poverty reduction were daily priorities for all gov'ts & every business for the decade starting in 2020?"

I get asked questions like this all the time "Is #MMT consistent with a post-capitalist system? #Socislism? #Imperialism? XYZism?"
MMT is compatible with any political system. 1/n
#MMT is an analytical approach that carefully estimates how much fiscal policy space a country has to meet its national priorities without causing #inflation. 2/n
Those national priorities are determined by a political system that can be participatory/dictatorial/fascist/capitalist/socialist/communist, or whatever. 3/n

I interrupt the relentless assault on our Mother Earth led by the ruling classes, to bring to your attention to critical information by @Mision_Verdad regarding a new coup attempt underway in Bolivia. This relates to the #Amazon fires media saturation. #NPIC #Imperialism
