marxism, the disciplined application of an informed theory and analysis to action is the same as it ever was. the problem is for socialists today in breaking with a liberalism desperate to preserve an order and its institutions that conservative reaction is far ahead in doing.
So, the problem for Marxism today (it's also a problem for liberalism) is that the Marxist critique of liberalism gets coopted by the fascists and is far more successful in fascists' hands. (Foucault notes this in 1979 btw.)

the conservative turn to fascism has gas because, as Meloni demonstrates, the truth of global finance capital capturing and dissolving all human bonds has an audience—reactionaries just have a targeted narrative and base eager to violently contest the reins of state subjugation.

if socialists are bound to defend the liberal order, we’ll be stuck in the contradiction Dems and liberal parties globally face—defense of large capital’s political control for the sake of institutions while the constituency for it shears off into alternatives actually offered.

its been said a few times recently, but maybe this Mike Davis coda wasn’t the laugh line it was taken initially as after all.

even the analysis of a bear market/recession relies on S&P share yields having dropped to merely fifteen times the forward P/L of a firm. this historic era of financialized commodity speculation has consumed the commoditized housing market as well, and is at the heart of things.
The New York City housing crisis isn’t caused by lack of inventory; its rooted in the capitalization of housing as a commodity, especially heightened in NYC the “real estate capital of the world.” That’s the socialist perspective on housing, not YIMBY v NIMBY.

politics that merely aim to mitigate the incredibly distorted price signals that have no relation to social utility and overwhelming relation to profit making are up against the withering inferno of a global system of capital uninterested in people being housed at all.

harm reduction in people’s conditions of living are necessary but insufficient to a political problem requiring immense political will and force to overcome. socialists actually interested in overcoming it have to build the type of mass organized power capable of such force.

to be very specific, this means that our priority is organizing people into fighting working class institutions on the basis of their relationship to commodified housing—worker and tenant unions capable of exacting political concessions through political force.
incredibly relatable to rehearse one’s true calling as a studio tactical analyst for your gf. I too was meant to have a 70 inch touchscreen highlight markup interface to make astute points about player selection.

apropos of Ron DeSantis and Greg Abbott's cynical manipulation of asylum policies, Giorgia Meloni's electoral victory, and the ongoing, escalating contradictions of democracy and racial capitalism, might I point you to The Book I Wrote, currently 20% off haymarketbooks.org/books/151…

whatever theoretical and solidaristic failures certain types of vulgar 'anti-imperialists' get up to on here, in your searing focus on them as red herrings in online skirmishes, you're sure to make the most interesting new political friends.

I get that it’s about being an angsty teenager and I remember what that feels like. But you can bet that if I had been plucked from obscurity at age 13 by a secret government organization to become a badass alien-fighting pilot, I wouldn’t have been like, "Woe is me"

Hahaha, ya’ll hilarious. Y’all do know it’s okay for a man to show a woman love and support without shooting his shot? That’s actually a thing.

scarcity mindset. instead, team up and launch two kinds of balls at every city hall window until they build more parks with courts and nice shady green spaces to lounge before your court time.
LA tennis group is apparently waging a war against pickleballers who are taking over the courts across the city Someone please explain pickleball/the appeal of pickleball to me
