Stop saying things like "Talibanization of the US". Stop blaming muslims all over the world for YOUR failure to contain the growth of *christian* extremism in your courts and your political system.

My 13 year old is asking for information about anarcho-communism. Anyone have any good sources of information I should share?

Already the US has been dying for a long time. They constantly lose compared to China, hence the ceaseless anxiety surrounding America's hegemonic position, and the constant well-poisoning to try to prevent the embarrassment of China's laughed-off structural improvements paying dividends. China seems hell-bent on infrastructure improvements and establishing what it'll look like in 10, 20, 30 years. Here, asking why the water has lead or the privatized power grid fails is 'betraying' capitalism.

If you're based in the US, today is a good day to check the privacy settings on your health trackers and find out what sort of data they store.

everyone is rightfully focused on the overturning of Roe v Wade because that one's huge but an awful ruling with just as much bad consequence recently was Vega v. Tekoh, which ruled that cops aren't required to give Miranda warnings to subjects. the Miranda warning, for those who don't know, is that whole "you have the right to remain silent" speech cops are supposed to give

in addition to being just generally evil--Miranda rights are already a fucking paper shield, but apparently even that is too much--this is just a fucking reductio ad absurdum of american law. in america you're allowed to have rights but you're not allowed to know about them. just ridiculous on its face.

uspol, musing 

it's kind of funny to have spent years rolling your eyes and saying "it's not going to be the handmaid's tale, real life is more complicated and we need to confront the reality, not an abstracted fantasy" ....

then one morning the supreme court announces the two most "we're literally going to do the handmaid's tale" changes to society that they could make

Stupid shit that the GOP believes: That the Democratic party has an overarching agenda that they are capable of enacting.

For a peek into how bad the class war, and specifically outright hatred and criminalization of the unhoused, is in Portland this article from Reveal is pretty good.

In short, Portland police are way more likely to arrest the unhoused. 50% of arrests are of the unhoused. Most of the calls to the police are to report the unhoused, and for most of those calls there is no crime being commited. When there is a crime it is usually non-violent.
