A lot of pop culture these days seems to be evaluated on its politics.
You ever read Henry George? Did we talk about this already?I really don't think it's possible to unionize production of tradable goods in the developed world. Everyone wants to blame employers with 2% margins as the big bad guys of capitalism, nobody wants to go after the landowners.
need to reread this closely but you may be interested in my old bit about how Uber is Maoist—will dig it up soonFinishing up a draft on this short essay now, gonna publish it soon. I'm curious about whether or not it can incorporate georgist ideas into a praxis (right now the praxis is essentially build a network of technologically advanced non-profits to self-regulate the regulatory vacuum of emerging tech industries in a manner more humanitarian than if otherwise left up to free market VC incentives).

It's for another thread, really, but it's clearly something to do with our current flavour of liberalism and the way everyone's expected to be their own brand and 'optimise' themselves. The extension of a grating amalgamation of the business pitch and the therapy session into every aspect of life.
