Quote note (#364)

Everywhere signs of a Great Ending:

Gramsci marched right through the institutions and clear off the cliff on the other side with the buildings tumbling after him. The established secular church of the Western left has fallen; it is now just another religion, like Christianity, Buddhism or Islam. Its special status as the high priesthood of the quasi-scientific Future is gone.

Quote note (#363)

Now the media is broken, news can get out:

That’s why the story about Harvey Weinstein finally broke now. It’s because the media industry that once protected him has collapsed. The magazines that used to publish the stories Miramax optioned can’t afford to pay for the kind of reporting and storytelling that translates into screenplays. They’re broke because Facebook and Google have swallowed all the digital advertising money that was supposed to save the press as print advertising continued to tank.

Quote note (#362)

The Audacious Epigone on American disunity:

This nation no longer makes sense. Inertia, economic convenience, and a large enough tax base to run a global empire are the only things holding this carcass of a country together. […] How the political dissolution will occur is anyone’s guess — probably along currently existing state boundaries, though that needn’t necessarily be the case. What seems clear, though, is that it’s time — past time — for secession.

ADDED: UK version.
