Ok, I'm officially declaring myself obsessed with #Yellowjackets. Like everyone in the movie Don't Look Up, I'm burying myself in entertainment while the world burns. At least this show is worthy.
I love seeing those amazingly talented 90s actresses get to be deeply complicated leads in a meaty story that's not about men. But I also love seeing the young actresses be just as good and getting this kind of work at the beginning of their careers! So much hope.
I love seeing what entertainment can be when it's not about what gets men off. At all. It's soooo incredibly rich and gripping and meaningful on infinite levels. What if ALL entertainment were this free to explore the whole human condition??
I love that while doing all this, the show is just fucking good on any level, by any measure.

Some apparently necessary reminders:

Adam Smith's capitalism was a response to protectionism (favoring rich landowners) and required regulation to work, bc it's fucking obvious that without regulation, it becomes pure corruption. It was always about commodities.
Karl Marx's socialism is not the only socialism. Socialism simply refers to the idea that economic equality is a good thing. It has been approached in many ways by many peopls around the world, often successfully.
The Soviet Union was an experiment that claimed to aim to achieve socialism, then communism (in Marxist terms) in what was an incredibly poor & troubled country w few resources even BEFORE fucking Stalin and WWII. It's not a great model for anything or anybody on any level. JFC.
