@drvolts I never appreciated them until a band I was in played a couple of their tunes. One thing that held me back was the guitar tones, which are pretty 80s—with a fatter guitar sound, New Sensation is a killer rock song.
@davidfisman I’ve been thinking about this too—as tempting as it is to be knee-jerk anti-capitalist right now, things like infant mortality, life-expectancy, technological progress are evidence that capitalism can work reasonably well for a lot of people when it’s a fair deal. But over the past 40 years it has clearly ceased being anything close to a fair deal.
But, of course, there were always people being stepped on, and then there’s the whole decimation of the climate thing…
Curious to see how this particular cage match plays out. I don’t think the result is knowable.
My guess is that a lack of public health could kill capitalism. https://twitter.com/thechefsgardens/status/1593577882051305472
It was coming when the climate crisis really started to hit, but it got here early with the pandemic: we were going to face new and significant challenges, and we were going to do it from somewhere along the “we’re in this together” to “fuck you, I got mine” spectrum. I was pessimistic, but not nearly pessimistic enough.
