The Atlantic is probably one most dangerous publications in the United States at this dangerous moment in history.
This piece, by George Packer, is a perfect example of the rank nonsense publications like The Atlantic pumps into the American media landscape.
To understand American media, you have to remember that virtually all American media aside is funded through subscriptions and/or advertising.
The business model of any American news organization depends on churning out eyeball attracting content. There are few exceptions — writers generally feed audiences stories that will feed their desire to read things they agree with.
The Atlantic is…
The United States of America is done.
You can’t have a working democratic nation when the population is divided into two camps who can’t even agree on what a free and fair election looks like.
It simply doesn’t work.
And trying to pretend otherwise runs the very real risk of the former USA descending into a civil war that will destabilize the entire planet.
The facts are brutal, but compelling:
Few ideas have done more damage to humanity than the misbegotten pseudo-scientific belief in the intrinsic legitimacy of what Max Weber famously called The State.
Our world, planet Earth, is presently divided into hundreds of States, a system defined by a single over-riding attribute: each State lays a claim, respected by agreement with other States, by the right to use violence within territory under their control without another State having any standing to intervene barring authorization from the United Nations Security Council.
Most scholars and almost every public official around the planet accept without question the inherent validity of this…
And everyone — including President Joe Biden — who are keeping this awful conspiracy alive are taking part in a long tradition of sinophobic orientalism.
Let’s cut to the chase of what is really going on here: The government of the United States of America allowed nearly 600,000 Americans— possibly over 900,000 — to die because the richest nation on Earth couldn’t be bothered to just copy Australia and New Zealand and figure out how to beat Covid-19.
Israel is completely out of control — and American taxpayers all have blood on their hands thanks to the Biden Administration’s abject surrender to Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu’s campaign of terror.
Joe Biden is an accomplice to war crimes, and just like Netanyahu and the leaders of Hamas he must one day be held to account at the Hague. Anyone who supports Joe Biden from this point on is condoning the foul murder of Palestinian children, full stop.
There can be no more doubt: Joe Biden is a liar and a coward.
For 40 years he has personally exemplified the reasons the United States of America has stagnated and now stands on the brink of total collapse.
He promises an American renewal, but in point of fact he represents nothing other than a dedicated effort by a group of Ivy League educated technocrats whose education has trained them to scorn anyone with less money than them to secure their power no matter what happens to the rest of the country.
Biden has pretended to care about progressive issues…
Barring some kind of miracle, this is the map of how Trump returns to power — and the last embers of hope for America’s future as an intact nation die.
Biden’s victory in the electoral college in 2020 was secured by only 11,779 votes (0.24%) in Georgia, 10,457 (0.31%) in Arizona, and 20,682 (0.63%) in Wisconsin.
These are all states Trump narrowly won in 2016 and — surprise, surprise, are now seeing a wave of partisan legislation clearly designed to suppress likely Democratic voters conveniently concentrated in the Phoenix, Atlanta, and Milwaukee metros.
I correctly predicted the shape of both…
Thank effing goodness — a cop is finally convicted of murder for murdering someone!
Yet it took a nationwide uprising after a video showing Derek Chauvin — abetted by three other cops who will hopefully receive their due soon— executing an unarmed suspect who posed no danger to anyone to force a conviction.
White Americans are celebrating as if this is some kind of milestone for racial healing, but the truth is that if it takes a 10-minute video showing a crowd pleading for a doomed man’s life as he calls out for his mother, the United States of America…
America’s elected officials are directly and personally responsible for nearly 600,000 deaths since the start of the Covid-19 Pandemic.
Most, at least half a million, were preventable.
Thousands of healthcare workers have died trying to fight a virus the federal government pretends to be at war with, but in fact long ago surrendered to.
They were betrayed, just like the thousands of soldiers who died in the insane “War on Terror” were betrayed in their own turn by a generation of political leaders who have turned America into a laughingstock with their pointless partisan civil war.
At every turn, Democratic…
At some point in the next month, the simmering Donbass War between Russia and Ukraine may boil over into a new round of major conflict.
Major military units are on the move across Russia, massing close to Ukraine’s borders. Belarus, the post-Soviet nation north of Ukraine, was placed under effective Russian control after the failed democratic uprising against that country’s dictator last year and has also dispatched military forces to Ukraine’s borders. NATO is on high alert, with multiple world leaders having contacted Russian President Vladimir Putin to demand the units pull back.
On the Russian side, nationalist media there…
