This is the death of the unbridled scientific hope we had when I was young.
This is the result of wanton abandonment of infrastructure.
This is not political.
This is lazy.
A person born with little knows to maintain things as long as you can.
When only the super wealthy have power, everything is an incidental expense.
I hate you for what you’ve done.
Making a circus so grand that dreams die within.
Today's hot take is something I've said before–but was reminded of today: The Democratic Party is not 'Leftist' or even 'Liberal'. The party leadership is best described as 'Center-Right''.
Yes there are liberal Democrats. But they don't have much say over things, which makes them rather (and understandably) angry. They bring in the voters, after all.
But the only thing putting the Democrats in general on the 'Left' is the contrast with a Republican party pushing against the limits of 'Right'.
@esvrld one idea I had was middle class really didn't understand the problem of not having enough money. If they couldn't afford a huge house, they could always get a slightly smaller big house. If they couldn't budget fancy restaurants, they could go to cheaper restaurants. If they couldn't get a luxury car, they could get a midrange car. The error in thinking was that everything scaled, and they assumed there was an affordable option for everyone instead of a hard floor.

Bernie Sanders to ABC News: "For too long, in my view, the Democratic Party has not been as aggressive as it should be in addressing the needs of the working class...that is why Trump has done so well with those people. It is time for us to expose Trump as a fraud."
Preach on, Bernie. Preach on.
"Why can't I breathe fire?"
"Not all dragons do," I explained.
"Why can't I fly?"
"You're not... that kind of dragon."
She stomped her foot, "I'm a useless dragon then!"
"Not at all!" I reconsidered my answer and hugged her, "Actually, you could learn how to fly."
"In a few years you can get a pilot's licence, and once you do, I'll give you any plane you want."
And she bounced in the way all small excited humans do.
