one of the results of liberal democracy being total, and directly reaching out to every individual

is that each and every case is supposed to be only handled by upper class' legal system - or activist class' bureaucracy.

in which @MrPrudentialist documents a particularly nasty example of
the progs baiting a new civil war

the title: 100%
the progs won't stop until you follow their ever-changing rules to the T.

a good point about *language manipulation*, and dripping contempt

worth noting how calls for unity by the ruling elite are calls to *obey*. ImageImage
let's disagree a bit why my esteemed colleague:

>there's been a growing sentiments
>for some kind of national separation

with the blue tribe having a death grip on the comms and on the narrative-making, i surmise the sentiment is being *pumped* rather than grown organically. Image

consider 4 right-wing powers:
- building a successful organization for your family and your tribe
- getting rich, passing that on
- leading people
- teaching & raising the next generation

those have been deeply undermined through progressive legislation and cultural artifacts
in particular legislation that mandates you have to include blue-tribe people in your organization
- you can't simply pick anybody.

and the blue-tribe members get gov aid in dismantling (suing) your organization according to their own sensibilities (tilted playing field).
you can't amass money for your own family & tribe, the gov redistributes it to *competing* others.

interesting to see a fill-in template for "planning campaigns".

it really is a revolution of midwits.
makes you wonder what kind of fill-in templates the bolsheviks used back in the day

pretty sure this part was not written on any fill-in template tho

in which @ezraklein discusses manufacturing consent ("agenda control") - media and Dems in alliance.

the unsaid part:
the freakout was over Trump being the rare non-Dem also able of controlling the agenda
Ezra's thread on importance of professional manufacturing of consent is also a *sales pitch*:
"to win elections, be in good graces with us"

>In the three years I’ve spent at Facebook, I’ve found multiple blatant attempts by foreign national governments to abuse our platform on vast scales to mislead their own citizenry,

maybe don't ask a gov to get even more power over FB then?
>That power contrasted with what she said seemed to be a lack of desire from senior leadership to protect democratic processes in smaller countries

somehow i trust the governments even less with this shit. and journalists *even* less than that.
