It’s tempting to believe that the dangers and calamity imposed by COVID-19 are unique and exogenous. But COVID is only capable of mass proliferation because it feeds on the long neglected externalities produced by our current arrangement of work and life. Where access to healthcare is limited and contingent on employment, we are dissuaded from … Read moreWhat Crisis?
First thing’s first: I support Bernie Sanders, and will be voting for him on April 28 in the Democratic Primary in New York. Sanders is my preferred candidate because he is the most radical, far-left candidate in the race and is calling for a major overhaul of America’s current governmental system and political culture. It … Read morePlaying the Game
Super Tuesday is on us, and only a fool or crazed propagandist would suggest they know how this will all play out. Biden’s strong performance in South Carolina shows that his base of geriatric support is hardly feeble. Bloomberg has been forced to retreat from the spotlight but is certainly plotting some sinister scheme in … Read moreThe End of Warren’s Gambit
I have been turned off by modern trends in digital content presentation, which has become saturated with advertising gimmicks that perpetuates in me a distrust of web content. Even sources of quality writing and analysis seem to be framed by cynical eyeball-retention tactics. Commercial media tend to consistently distract away from the content being presented … Read moreNotes on the Moonbog & Modern Content Accessing

Although the document was promptly deleted by official Sanders organizers and was not an official campaign memo, the benign script set off a digital war over the weekend of January 10th. The … Read moreTwitter Wars
The end times are nigh. World War III seems imminent because of the poor, egomaniacal foreign policy of the mad buffoon who currently occupies the Oval Office. Systemic racism and police brutality are rampant. Misogynists continue to hold the power in a war that seeks to suppress women in the workplace, the doctor’s office, and … Read moreOn Coping with Dread
This writing is a response to previously published comments from The Central Scrutinizer. Sometime in the last few days many, dare I say all who would read this blog, encountered news of a certain assassination. Some found this news at 4 am in sweatpants, hidden in pot filled basements — those secret caves where the … Read moreIn defense of the rotten Big Mac: prelude to a vindication of Joy
What follows is not an informative or informational essay, but just some unorganized thoughts I’ve had following the assassination carried out by the U.S. military on Qassem Soleimani, a leader within the Iranian military and one of the more powerful political leaders in Iran. I have plans to write something more in-depth, but I wanted … Read moreNotes on the Impending War; or, the World’s Oldest Big Mac
Warren revealed her Medicare for All (M4A) plan that did not include an increase in middle-class taxes, as she had consistently pseudo-promised over the past few months. The plan attracted criticism from both the centrist wing of the Democratic party and – most distressing for me – the left-wing. Any previous perusal of left-wing spaces, … Read moreThe Left-Wing Rift is a Question of Tactics
If you’ve made it this far, first I want to thank you for indulging me in this affair. But second, I want to disclose why, exactly, I’m subjecting my thoughts to you in this way.
