To criticize corporations as profit maximizers is to take it as a given they maximize profit. The larger they are the less profit seeking they seem. They pursue objectives such as political and social power as well as class privilege of management.

America's imperial successes are underestimated, because the global dominance of American ideas is assumed to be due to their merits. Conversely, America's imperial failures are misattributed, because they stem from the fact that those very same ideas are actually terrible.

"Bringing Democracy to Afghanistan didn't work." Ok, so what went wrong? I'm going to do a little primer on the nature, purpose, and proper use of democracy. 1/

On Freedom House, the “independent” NGO funded and staffed by the US government that decides which countries are democracies. Since its beginning, it’s represented the foreign policy establishment, including when it helped lie the US into Iraq.

Current Western methods of laundering subjectivity as objectivity: 1. "The Experts say" "The Science says" 2. "The markets reveal" "The markets show" 3. "The AI determined" "AI decided" Usually they are used to legitimize hidden decisions by the powerful.

Francis Bacon makes a similar claim. The best insights of ancient societies are like weighty objects, sinking and lost in the river of time, while the most superficial ideas are buoyed to the surface, where they remain available for study.

@BennettJonah Accountability can't be solved. It's a pipe dream borne of class insecurity. The powerful are only accountable to other powers and to God.

One of the most central and crucial parts of every well-functioning society is that the elites have sane ideology, are well-coordinated, and have limited internal conflict. This is the primary consideration. 'Regime type' is secondary.

Thread One of the reasons why Wokeism, or Intersectionality, or whatever you wish to term the current new religion tearing through the Western world, is enjoying so much success is because multiple aspects of our society promote conversion to its cause.

Why is the entire western world moralizing about narratives and events that are largely the result of internal political power struggles in the USA? There are no deep humanist lessons, just lessons on cynical politics. And for the normies: The only way to win is not to play.

Recording of my recent @1517fund talk. I explain how to evaluate the health of a civilization's core institutions, what a slow collapse looks like from the inside, and how civilizational decline and collapse come about.

Trenutno tole trenda na kitajski strani twitterja. Kitajci se zgražajo nad neciviliziranostjo, ki jo razkriva koronavirus v Evropi, in seveda nad našim nenavadnim priborom.

When it comes to power decentralization doesn't look the way we expect it to. It has nothing to do with individuals vs. states! Rather how difficult or easy it is for intermediate institutions to escape or disobey central power.
