Winners, Losers and Links

Winners

Australian Bureaucrats – Rebounding hard as the two biggest states have abandoned the zero covid policy approach. Protests and truckers have done work. Wait, what music is that? Is that the tech surveillance initiatives the Australian government wants to implement? You can leave your house and enter the tech panopticon (and forget your devices).

Neocons – While discredited, they have managed to get many Republicans to embrace the war drive with the Afghanistan bungle.

Workers – Wages keep rising with top to bottom bidding for employees ongoing. Covid appears to have caused many Boomers to retire.

Losers

The Empire – The Afghanistan withdrawal is a huge setback because the ideological rejection as well as the military loss. It is worse than Vietnam.

Biden – All his life he angled for the presidency. Now in his decayed form, he assumed the puppet role and in whatever flashes of lucidity he has must see how bad things are going.

Teachers – Reputation? Gone. The parental eye of Sauron is now on them via social media, and even with union protection, they have more mines to dodge.

    That Spectator piece is excellent, worth it just for the final conclusion paragraph and video.
