Don’t ask me why I did this to myself, but I finished Bolton’s book.

This are my thoughts.
//THREAD//
So, before I begin, I stand by my previous summary:

-Bolton is a piece of shit and his pompous attitude should be met with a slap in the face. Seriously, fuck that guy.

- As for Trump, he’s an incompetent and ignorant criminal who should be behind bars.
Next up, Bolton is comically bad at what he does.

As the guy in charge of National Security, he wanted a war with North Korea and got the US out of the international agreements.

Not to mention that he tried to destroy the UN back when he was UN ambassador.

I’m continuing my read-through of John Bolton’s “The Room Where It Happened” here.

I’m reading this so you don’t have you, so please DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK.

//THREAD//
It says a lot that Trump believed meeting with Putin would be easier than meeting with NATO or with Theresa May.

Meeting with your allies is hard when compared to meeting with your handler.
The President is an idiot — and a traitor.

Okay, let's get this started.

I'm live tweeting my thoughts and some analysis as I read Bolton's "The Room Where It Happened". I'm using a PDF version that I got for free, so I'll provide annotations and highlights.

//THREAD//
My first thought while reading this is just utter amazement at how highly Bolton regards himself:
For someone whose livelihood depends on the Resistance buying his book, Bolton isn't holding back words. I've felt insulted at least 5 times and I'm only a couple pages in.

I know that every time that something new comes out we all say that that’ll be the final nail in Trump’s coffin.

But the Red Dawn might actually be the final nail in Trump’s coffin.

The first e-mail makes clear that experts were warning about this since January.

While Trump said nothing was happening, VA Advisors were already predicting a massive outbreak.
Email #2 just re-emphasizes this, it’s comparing Coronavirus to disastrous historic events.

Any virus being compared to Hiroshima or Pompeii by experts should send shockwaves through the government, not just an email chain.

I’m trying to make a point about why Generation Z is the most anxious generation in history, so bear with me while I break it down.

Let’s start in the 1980s. Would anyone mind listing all the major, world-changing events that happened that decade?

I can count maybe two, the embassy bombing and the Internet going global.

Moving into the 1990s, can someone list all the major events?

I can count one, the fall of the USSR.

You can probably see where this is going by now.

So, you want to know what social democracy and democratic capitalism are, and how they differ from socialism?

You’re in the right place.

//THREAD//
1.- Socialism, as described by Karl Marx, is an economic and political theory that advocates for the means of production to be owned and regulated by society as a whole.
In a true socialist society, the proletariat would be the government, and the government would control all the means of production. All of it.

THIS are the people we are dealing with.

There is nothing that makes me sadder than seeing people accuse others of not knowing what something is, while not knowing what it is themselves.

//THREAD\\
Socialism is a utopian fantasy, it’s not good not bad, it’s a dream. What the left supports, and what the right is against is social democracy.

How are those different? Here.
In a socialist country, there would be no private industry. All the means of production would be controlled by the government, which would be made up from the “proletariat”, or working class.

There has never been a socialist country, nor will there ever be.

You think Tulsi Gabbard is a good person? You’re in for a ride. Here is her record:
