Re: The Not-So- and All-Too-Real World of North Korea

Tyler Cowen needs to read up on dictators . Kim's father was even more obsessed with South Korea culture. To the point where he kidnapped a leading director and actress and became their benefactor to finance any crazy fucking movie they wanted to make. He also forced them to stay married. And after...

Death of Stalin is pretty good, although from it you could get the impression that everybody but Beria wasn't that bad, which is false, although Beria was much worse.

Nikki Haley. "Locked and loaded." It would be nice if there were American politicians talked like people who occasionally did things other than watch bad TV.

Re: When journalism goes bad

They have a point about the EAT MOR CHIKIN campaign. That shit is creepy af. When Chicken Run was out and they had a Burger King tie-in ad campaign (I think because Burger King had no chicken dishes), I always wanted to see those ads opposite EAT MOR CHIKIN ads. This why pigs end up running the farm.

McArdle is dumb, that's why. She hurts libertarianism and should go back to finance if she doesn't suck at that.

Re: Inequality

I think the problem is this: 1. Minority neighborhood exists for whatever reason. 2. Property values decline, both directly due to racism (i.e. whites not wanting to live there due to minorities) and increase in crime. 3. Residents do not have real access to the police, good institutions, etc. as we...

If a law enforcement lobbying group offered him a better compensation package he'd be a prohibitionist in a heartbeat. A real change of heart actually seems plausible to me. His son in law is a black Jamaican immigrant construction worker who was once busted for misdemeanor pot possession. He is no...

Paul Ryan is out.

Which imbecile will end up replacing the imbecile that ends up replacing him? As GOP Congressional leader. I'm assuming Nancy Pelosi replaces Ryan as Speaker.

Capitalism is bad because it gave rise to the use of "disruption" and "impactful." Also "utilize" instead of use. If you are not a biologist, you should never use "utilize."

I saw a headline that said "Tammy Duckworth gives birth, first US senator to do so while in office" and I thought it meant she literally gave birth in her office. Kind of disappointing that she just had a baby the regular way.
Call me when a senator gives birth while filibustering at the podium.

I have to agree that Coates and Williamson seem roughly equivalent in terms of offensiveness-to-the-"other side." And I'd put Jessica Valenti in pretty much the same camp, though not because of her views on abortion; she's much more inflammatory when she's talking about things like "toxic masculini...
