Suburbanites of the World Unite; you have nothing to lose but your supposedly good credit

update below

RT: "Police Use Excessive Force Against Mentally Disabled"

via skeptical eye

and, an interview with economist Raymond Lotta, below. There is something peculiar about his affect. Maybe he's uncomfortable being interviewed, or maybe he's concerned that she thinks he's actor Ray Liotta and doesn't actually know anything about economics. Certainly the clipped, impassive quality of the interviewer's demeanor makes him seem all the more antic.

(also via S. E.)

see also BBC, "A Point of View: The revolution of capitalism"

Actually, it seems there are quite a few articles and op-eds like this one above. I recall a similar item in Marketwatch fairly recently. What do you want to call it, the Late Capitalism meme?

The chap in the RT video is an Avakianist. He comes off wooden because they're a cultish group of Maoists.

I remember a post about 1.5 years ago where Jack Crow said he wasn't a believer in "-ist" or "-ism" categorization.

Lately he's all about that, though. Divide and conquer, I guess.

Dang. I was hoping it was because he really was Ray Liotta.
