Topic always makes me think of that bit Zizek does where he points out that the authoritarian father is actually better than the one who acts like a abuddy; they both are going to end up telling the kid what to do, but the pretense that he's not makes the "nice" father worse. Same sort of thing with Facebook. I'd love it if this shit got off of my feed forever, but these little announcements just goes to remind the people who make the stuff that gets shared on Facebook who they really work for.
@Choire Sicha you too!
Dworkin is in the unusual position of having her positions both misrepresented as more radical than they were and also having them watered down in a misguided attempt to defend her. The latter is worse.
Thank you for this piece. The rise of the extreme right in Israel is one piece of all this that I just don't think many Americans, even educated Americans, are really aware of.
you should go to Gaza and tell people that every exploding building is secretly about America
ugh, that video.
Yes, bourgie white people! The world exists only for you!
I think I love you for this
@thethetk But you have to actually present info that "very recent changes" are in fact dramatic. And nobody has done that, here. The notion that there is some clear and major difference in the student loan debts of graduates from the past five years and those from the past fifteen is totally unproven to me.
@KarenUhOh If you don't like the Brookings Institution, this piece pulls from Harvard, the NBER, the NCES, the BLS, UChicago....
@Matthew Darling@facebook Right. That's an enormous sample.
