Professor Snyder’s nightmare (thanks, Tom) concludes:
We have to act now. This is what no one wants to hear. We want to believe in American democracy. We want to take pride in new laws, a growing economy, the end of covid. I get all of that. I want to feel that way too. I […]
Marketing guru Seth Godin:
A generation ago, delivering the news was a civic duty. Now it’s a profit center.
The quick edits, the crawling text, the noise–it all exists to remind us of a thrilling movie, not of real life.
And the clickbaiting reality of online news multiplies that.
These folks paid $1.3 million for a parking space. Do you ever get the feeling inequality has gotten out of hand?
Trump, who expects to be “reinstated” soon, would work to make that inequality worse, enabled by the party of tax cuts for the rich.
