The idea that we are entering an era of techno-feudalism that will be worse than capitalism is chilling and controversial. We asked former Greek finance minister Yanis Varoufakis to elucidate this idea, explain how we got here, and map out some alternatives.

    Anyone who self-identifies as a Republican at this point in time is either delusional or psychotic. Full stop.

        To a lesser extent? Quite possibly. Ignorance though is heavily prevelent in both groups. All groups really. We’re all ignorant about some things. It’s impossible not to be. However Republicans do stand out however. Purposefully embracing and championing ignorance.

        Attacking trans people and burning books like the Nazis did is a bold move. We’ll see eventually if it works out differently this time.

            No. Which ones have Democrats banned? Also, it’s wrong whoever does it.

              They’re probably talking about the racist books being pulled out of grade school because at that level of education they have no value. But of course Republicans see that as equal to banning LGBT literature because they’re chodes.

                You were spot on. I pressed him on it elsewhere. And that was literally it. Which was hardly surprising.

                  Look into Huckleberry Finn removal from schools.

                  To be clear, I think there’s value in teaching that book with context, but not teaching that context does make the book problematic.
