Politics Is Dead, Here’s What Killed It

January 16, 2022

Here’s “politics” in America now: come with mega-millions or don’t even bother to show up. Representational democracy–a.k.a. politics as a solution to social and economic problems–has passed away.

Should You Move While You Can, Or When You Must?

January 14, 2022

This gives an extreme advantage to those few who move first, long before they must. The financial advantage for first movers is equally extreme. Moving is a difficult decision, so we hesitate.

January 10, 2022

Try to find a developing-world kleptocracy in which the top few collect more than 97% of the income from capital. There aren’t any that top the USA, the world’s most extreme kleptocracy.

Why Don’t We Cut Out the Middleman and Just Elect Pfizer and Merck?

January 7, 2022

If we no longer have the capacity to distinguish between moral legitimacy and self-serving corruption, then we might as well eliminate the Middleman and vote directly for Pfizer or Merck.
