A Small, Quiet Thought, Possibly Incorrect

If anything characterizes a civilization or a society as decadent, surely it is this: it feels immature to be principled.


"They Still Haven't Figured It Out"

I don't know much about what happened in Chicago and the Trump rally and all of that. Someone showed me a video of it at work.

I think I was supposed to be all excited that Sanders supporters were protesting Trump's "fascism" or whatever.

But what I really saw was a lot of people who have suffered the most from decades of "failed" economic policies fighting amongst themselves.

And what I imagined was many wealthy people somewhere sighing with relief: "they still haven't figured it out".
