Yes, they will and yes it is.

Civilization as we know it is indeed coming to an end, as in 1914-45 or 1775-1815. Some new global system is going to take its place and millions — maybe many millions are going to die.

And we are just beginning to figure out the initial contours of the struggle and how it will play out; what will be important and what will not.

It won’t be like the last two great crashes. This one, I think, will put an end to the nation state as the highest form of human organization, one way or another.

What’s tragic is watching all these dumb conservatives believe that they can hold back time or — indeed — turn back the clock. Marx was dead right about one thing at least: history only goes in one direction. All the people with MAGA hats and those waving British flags, their time is coming to an end and they know it.

The accelerationist utopians think they are getting the dead weight of the State off their back. Most of them — the idiots who think they are libertarians, like our old pal the Dogfucker — don’t even realize that the State is what gave them a modicum of stability and prosperity. I mean, what would JJ Parrus of Virginia Beach DO if there weren’t big, government-supported defense contractors? Fucking chihuahuas doesn’t pay much. :)

God knows what’ll take the current global civilization’s place, but I don’t think it will be pretty.

It's a never-ending shitshow of incompetence


And yet it is pretty certain 40% or more of the electorate will vote for the aforementioned shit show of incompetence. Stupidity and racism do not fully explain the Trumpian floor. As disgusting as it seems, at least some reasonably intelligent, educated and successful folks will vote for this appallingly awful individual and his incompetent administration out of perceived self-interest be it single issue bigotry (pro-abortion or ant--LGBTQ), greed or fear.

I fear Trump (and Johnson, Orban, Erdogan et al) is simply a horrid manifestation of a deeper rot.

The Trumpster was up at midnight, tweeting again. This time, it was back to "OPEN THE SCHOOLS!!!".

Some fun responses, but for some reason, my favorite was:

"RELEASE THE KRAKEN!!!"

Not sure why.

XFL gets Hollywood ending as Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson group buys league...

:shock:

I thought it died almost twenty years ago, but turns out I was wrong:

The XFL lasted one season in its first incarnation in 2001, before McMahon invested $200m in restarting it this year. However, when Covid-19 shut down professional sports earlier this year it was unable to survive. The league drew an audience of 3 million in its first week but ratings fell thereafter.

The new ownership group did not say when they would restart the league but ESPN reported the XFL could play in an isolation bubble similar to that of the NBA as early as next year.


Maybe Trump will want in on the action too... 0;)

There are legitimate concerns about Tik-Tok, but Trump's just butt-hurt, like with the United States Football League...
