A happy 103rd birthday to Spanish Civil War veteran and lifelong CNT member Antonio Oviedo Cadierno. "Born on May 17, 1917, he joined the CNT at 14, fought through the war, the dictatorship and well into democracy. During the war years he fought three years on the fronts, and during his stay in Madrid met Buenaventura Durruti. After the war came the concentration camp and later prison. Once released he went into hiding, working together with colleagues in the conservation of the CNT and the transmission of anarchist ideas, collaborating in various publications."

McDonald’s Workers in Denmark Pity Us

"Some American companies scoff that a $15 minimum wage or stronger unions would be a disastrous blow to business. Denmark challenges that narrative, for it shows that it’s possible to have a thriving economy that pays workers decently and treats them respectfully."

Democracy has been less than a total success – and the intellectual's half-shamed cynicism about democracy is justified – to the extent that traditional society did not need, could not use, and in many ways discouraged the development of high verbal ("rational") skills in the majority of the population. That is, concretely, most people are not encouraged to be very smart, and are rather heavily programmed to be comparatively stupid. Such programming is what is needed to fit them into most traditional jobs. Their bio-survival circuitry works as well as that of most animals, their emotional-territorial circuitry is typically primate, and they have little third-circuit "mind" to verbalize (rationalize) with. Naturally, they usually vote for the charlatan who can activate primitive bio-survival fears and territorial ("patriotic") pugnacity. The intellectual looks at the dismal results and continues to b

#Trump's #Reelection Is Sitting on a Knife's Edge


Source: https://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2019/12/impeachment-trump-2020/603832/
Even among white voters without a college degree, Trump’s core constituency, the results on these questions spotlight potential cracks for Trump, especially among women. While four-fifths of non-college-educated white voters express optimism about their economic #future, and a clear majority oppose impeachment, about 40 percent say that Trump abuses his power as president and considers himself above the law. Given that Hillary #Clinton carried only about one-third of these voters in 2016, these concerns suggest that #Democrats could make modest gains with these voters, particularly women, who already moved away from the #GOP in the 2018 midterm elections.
