A viking ship appears on the horizon, a likeness of Alice Coltrane carved into its bow. Rare birds flock together to sing Francoise Hardy as soul hits. A sunset of blips and bleeps fills the air.

Thanks for the suggestion, just added it to the running library list.
Thinking back on my decision to volunteer for the Obama campaign in three different states I don’t regret it. Because the symbolism is still powerful. That there’s now a generation of black children who know a black president is a powerful thing, when one considers the long bloody history of racial brutality toward black Americans.
But I’ll never again support in any way another Democrat - unless they’re completely committed to transitioning from a capitalist economy to a socialist one.
To the subject of your book if you haven’t seen Cornel West’s long interview about the Obama administration it’s well worth it:

it's been a heartbreaking few years with elections. me + my friends were rallying for bernie back in 2020, and when he didn't get the nom i pretty much bailed
on any organizing for the dems. stinks for them cuz i'm a killer phone banker. stinks for all of us because the system stays corrupt :'(

The insanity in yesterday's House hearings were off the charts. The best exchange:

“Are you familiar with Genesis 12:3?” Rep. Rick Allen (R-Ga.) asked Shafik. “It was a covenant that God made with Abraham … If you bless Israel, I will bless you. If you curse Israel, I will curse you … Do you consider that a serious issue? I mean, do you want Columbia University to be cursed by God?”

“Definitely not,” Shafik said.

Allen discussed “lawless universities” and suggested the school should offer a course about the Bible and “kinda what will happen under the wrath of God.”

Politics, as it has always been covered by the corporate media but especially in this dystopian era of social media, is now at its zenith as the Entertainment Division of the Military Industrial Complex.

You must be constantly distracted by sensationalism; never asking or getting answers to the fundamental questions. Because, “There’s money to be made, goddamnit!” Not only by the weapons manufacturers and oil companies. But by Wall St, land speculators and corporate boards by continuing to pillage “underdeveloped” (read: overexploited) countries of their natural resources, while manufacturing is now done almost exclusively by child slave labor in SE Asia.

Israel benefits from America’s diabolical dependence on all of this, while the plight of Palestinians is ruthlessly ignored and then plotted against.

As long as almost all societal arrangements are subject to the profit motive, by not legislating against it NOTHING will change.

It’s the capitalist economy churning up everything and everyone under foot in its way; then gliding along at a crisp clip, with incomprehensible windfalls of illicit money for CEO’s and their puppets in Congress and at all levels of government.

Democracy has long flown the coop.
It’s Election by Bribery.

Solidarity in the 99% is the only hope we have.

It's been especially sad to watch universities buckle under pressure from donors and politicians. I don't envy anyone trying to lead right now. I can't remember a time when it's been this precarious.

Yes, and what a way to celebrate. Strut and WFMU support each other, and celebrate each other. Great way to lift each other up, support the music and the musicians. Perfect morning <3

Absolutely. This isn't coming out of nowhere--we've been leading to it for a while, and this issue in particular has been a limit case for US universities. Palestinian students and supporters have never enjoyed the full support the deserve, at least not at adminstrative levels, and probably not at faculty or peer levels either. I thought BLM, which had broad solidarity with Palestine, might be a turning point but we can see how several states have effectively outlawed discussions of race, let alone structural solutions or even attempts to recognize structural problems. The backlash has been devastating.

Chris Hedges’s book “Death of the Liberal Class” does a great job of going into the systematic deterioration of the educational and cultural institutions by the reactionary oligarchy who fund and control them.

But it’s been going on for far longer than just these past few decades.

Systemic outcome of unbridled capitalism.

Congress declaring that "from the river to the sea" is anti-semitic is going to be used as a way to expel students and remove faculty from teaching positions, tenure or no tenure. And it's white nationalists driving the boat, pretending to give a rip about antisemitism only so they can weild it like a baseball bat.
