Everyone Is Sick Now

By Claire Nightingale (@PotsCooking) It’s 2 AM and the phone is ringing, but I am not asleep. 2 AM is my 2 PM, being a night shift nurse, so I am busily fussing about the house, cleaning and organizing. I look at my phone. My friend is calling. My father says that nothing good ever…

Anything Is Possible + Friday Reads 3/13/20

Never let a crisis go to waste. Anything is possible. Feels a little like the week after 9/11. Maybe Moldbug is right and it all changes. Maybe it does not. This is the week the normie world caught up with the right wing internet autist world of January. This could get incredibly bad and it…

The Last Man of the Deep Wild

“A man could be a lover and defender of the wilderness without ever in his lifetime leaving the boundaries of asphalt, power lines, and right-angled surfaces. We need wilderness whether or not we ever set foot in it. We need a refuge even though we may never need to set foot in it.” – Edward…

Race to Milwaukee: DNC Victorious

Race To Milwaukee: It’s Over, Bernie Bros

With the race now shifting to big Tuesdays, we had to move this weekly update to the middle of the week. The DNC flexed its muscle. Super Tuesday came and went and Joementum was made real. Ol’ Joe Biden won South Carolina by a staggering amount. What followed was a demonstration in the inner party…

National Debt and the Technocrats

After the Napoleonic Wars, Britain had acquired a large national debt that was 225% of GDP. Britain also incurred an additional layer of debt to pay off slavers when their trade was abolished – which wasn’t finally paid off until 2015. Despite this, the country managed to dominate the world for the next 125 years….
