I live here (near at least) now. It's a result of competing radical ideologies pulling as hard as they can. They are tearing the place apart. Ideas of common sense and compromise are lost. 

Seattle has usually been ahead of the curve. If you look at what is happening nationally, I think we still are. The same result will be played out nationally soon enough unless something in our politics changes.

Granny Gotta Eat: Hillary Clinton to Give Keynote Address at Cyber Defense Summit

The announcement comes just weeks after Hillary warned the Democrats running for president in 2020 that they could have the election "stolen" from them, suggesting that Russian interference was the sole factor in her humiliating loss to Donald Trump in 2016—and not, for example, her unprecedented deficiencies as a candidate.

"You can run the best campaign, you can even become the nominee, and you can have the election stolen from you," Clinton told a cheering audience in Los Angeles as part of her "Evening with the Clintons" tour with her nominal husband, former President Bill Clinton.

Yep, it's official, Trump is not the legitimate POTUS ...

Yanis Varoufakis: Marx predicted our present crisis – and points the way out
200th Anniversary of the Birth of Marx and a Revolution in Understanding History
Historian Gerald Horne and host Paul Jay discuss the ongoing relevance of Marx's Materialist Conception of History; to understand and fight ideas that defend injustice today, people must know the economic roots that give rise to, and perpetuate, such ideology

NYT: Don’t Be Progressive, Be a ‘Liberal’

A New York Times op-ed by political scientist (and former Bob Kerrey aide) Greg Weiner (7/13/18) may well be the New York Times–iest op-ed ever.

Its ostensible subject is why Democrats should call themselves “liberals” and not “progressives.” But in making that case, it hits most of the main points of the New York Times‘ ideology—one that has guided the paper since the late 19th century.

First and foremost, it’s a defense of the status quo. “The basic premise of liberal politics,” Weiner writes, “is the capacity of government to do good, especially in ameliorating economic ills.” But not too much good, mind you:  “A liberal can believe that government can do more good or less,” he stresses. Weiner draws a contrast with progressives: “Where liberalism seeks to ameliorate economic ills, progressivism’s goal is to eradicate them.”

So Lyndon Johnson’s Great Society is cited negatively as an example of “a progressive effort to remake society by eradicating poverty’s causes”—in the process supporting  “community action” and  financing the “political activism”—presented without explanation as a self-evident evil.  The explanation, presumably, is that the poor should remain passive as they remain poor, gratefully accepting the handouts that “alleviate” their plight, as “cutting checks,” as Weiner puts it, is “something government does competently.”

Coupled with this anxiety about “eradicating poverty’s causes” is the confident assurance that the truth is always somewhere in the middle. “Unlike liberalism, progressivism is intrinsically opposed to conservation,” Weiner warns:

Nothing structurally impedes compromise between conservatives, who hold that the accumulated wisdom of tradition is a better guide than the hypercharged rationality of the present, and liberals, because both philosophies exist on a spectrum.

Conservatives make better partners for liberals than progressives, because “one can debate how much to conserve.” But you can’t debate how much to progress, apparently: “Progressivism is inherently hostile to moderation because progress is an unmitigated good.”

In other words: Equality and justice, sure, but let’s not rush into things, is the “liberal’s” advice. He endorses “policies develop gradually and command wide consensus—at least under normal circumstances.” (Progressives have an unnerving desire to “depress the accelerator.”)

Something that doesn’t change is the right wing of the left’s attraction to redbaiting. Weiner praises “the Cold War liberal who stood for social amelioration and against Soviet Communism,” a figure who “was often maligned by progressives.” Without coming out and accusing progressives of Stalinism, he describes progressives’ response to critics as “a passive-aggressive form of re-education,” one that “supersedes the rights of its opponents.” The example he gives of this is the “progressive indifference to the rights of those who oppose progressive policies in areas like sexual liberation”—an odd arena to cite, since the main “rights” that opponents of “sexual liberation” have demanded in recent years are the “right” of small businesses to discriminate against gay customers and the “right” to check the chromosome status of people who use public restrooms.
