@zacharykarabell The word "progress" was used to denote a reversal of the degenerative characteristics that describe Capitalist enterprise, being first used by the only successful Communist theology in recent history, The United Society of Believers. Your use of the word is a form of redirection.
@zacharykarabell The @progressntwrk is painted in shades of hubris: lipstick on a pig. It reminds me of how poor immigrants would convince themselves the United States was paved with gold while the gold-hoarding Capitalists of Wall Street engineered a mass starvation event across the US in 1893.
@zacharykarabell @progressntwrk The same saccharine language and perspective is being pushed by @victorperton and his @Centre4Optimism, who are polluting @optimist_press' brand.

@progressntwrk Not really. I just followed the link to your website and read words, and words are my specialty.
@progressntwrk Oh! Perhaps you're referring to my research! My research into Capitalism and the Engineered Starvation of 1893: how Capitalists hoarded gold to starve to death and impoverish an entire swath of the American public that included the original American Left.

@progressntwrk Perhaps we should illuminate your founder, @zacharykarabell. Maybe @victorperton can slap a fresh coat of gloss on all those poor immigrants who trampled each other to death for bread in the neighborhoods my family has called home since the late nineteenth century.

@adamjohnsonNYC @WalkerBragman Has anyone other than me discussed a "defund & replace" approach to the policing problem? A cumpulsory municipal civil defense corps. Municipalities would only need to invest in training and supplies while offering our youth a shared sense of purpose.
@adamjohnsonNYC @WalkerBragman One could make the case that the Second Amendment is unconstitutionally abrogated since our militias, the intended policing units, were dissolved after the Civil War, so the people and their firearms are not properly regulated, thereby eliciting funds from the central authority.
@adamjohnsonNYC @WalkerBragman I imagine it would double as a food, education, sanitation, social health and trades program.

@Megankstack Throughout American history, beginning with the Federalist papers, "the Fourth Estate" has marched hand in hand with politicians and their wealthy donors.
@Megankstack Among the richest and most vibrant literary and journalistic eras in American history was during the mid to late nineteenth century, when the original American Left, derided as "populists," established a network of independent presses across the country.
@Megankstack Most of those manuscripts and columns have been buried.

"As folks go, it's easy for us to fail.
No one to stop us from the downward slide.

Unless compassion and love rule the day."

"In this world, prison is all in the mind.
Life's easy for the happy-go-lucky
Until they find a chip on their shoulder
Really unnerves the most reasonable
Even if they chill as ice cubes in fire."

"The school treats me like a tool for money.
How'm I supposed to make it in this swirl?"

@Sen_JoeManchin @WSJopinion "The word 'inflation' attracts a lot of negative attention, but inflation also has the potential to reverse economic stagnation. FDR’s New Deal played a significant role in post-Depression economic reconstruction and is a prime example."

@Sen_JoeManchin @WSJopinion "Inflation, deflation, these market descriptors have been embellished, recontextualized and divorced from their primary and original function."

@Sen_JoeManchin @WSJopinion "Currency, deflation, inflation and the institutions designed to regulate them don’t exist in the a priori, abstract environment that produced them."
