The U.S. Military is staunchly opposed to the Trumpist insurrection.

"The rights of freedom of speech and assembly do not give anyone the right to resort to violence, sedition, and insurrection."

"On January 20...President-elect Biden will be inaugurated and will become our 46th Commander in Chief."

The Trumpist insurrectionists are going to lose. πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ

1/OK, let's take a little break from Coup Twitter, and think about an economic issue:

How can we build up the wealth of the middle class?…
2/The typical American has surprisingly little wealth compared to the typical resident of many other developed countries.

This is a fact that is not widely known or appreciated.
3/Now, some people argue that stuff like Social Security or social insurance programs should be included in wealth. But I chose to focus on private wealth because I think having assets you can sell whenever you want is important to people.

1/I decided to write about America's Cold Civil War, and when it might end, and what might be done to hasten its end.

I'm biased, and I'm not an expert on this sort of thing, so take my thoughts with a grain of salt!…
2/With 45% of Republicans supporting the coup attempt of 1/6 and 42% blaming Biden, it's clear that the Cold Civil War is far from over.
3/First, let's talk about why the Cold Civil War is continuing.

The main reason is that the Right feels an intense sense of threat.

Some of that threat is demographic.…

1/Alright, gather round, friends, and let me tell you the story of 1930s Japan, and how it's a cautionary tale for 2020s America.…
2/Everyone knows that Japan became militarist, fascist, and (even more) expansionist in the 30s.

But what few people know is that this followed 6 years of coup attempts by EVEN MORE militarist/fascist/expansionist lunatics.

So let's review that history. Image
3/The first coup attempt was the March Incident in 1931.

Basically, some right-wing army officers planned to stage a riot to provoke martial law, and install a military dictator.

It failed when they couldn't get enough people to riot. Image

1/America is not yet prepared for the massive effort we will need to produce and distribute vaccines.

Because we're still only thinking about the FIRST vaccination drive.

There may be more.…
2/Soon (thanks to President Biden) we will solve the bottlenecks with distribution. At that point, production will become the limiting factor. We've only allocated 15 million first doses so far. Our population is 331 million.…
3/But even that dramatically UNDERSTATES the size of the vaccine production and distribution challenge.

The reason: The virus may mutate into vaccine-resistant strains.

1/Today in @bopinion, I discuss why America has been producing too many PhDs in recent years, and what we need to do to solve the problem.…
2/First of all, many people don't realize just how many PhDs we produce! More than almost any other rich country. Image
3/And we've kept ramping this number up and up. Image

1/I wanted to know how likely it was that America would have another civil war.

So I asked an expert: @pstanpolitics of the University of Chicago, who studies political violence for a living!…
2/Staniland thinks protracted low-level right-wing violence is likely.
3/But he thinks the likelihood that the military will split up into warring factions is unlikely.
