No. What you’re both missing James Gray and Jason Sobel is that there’s almost NOBODY advocating for erasing property lines. I mean, I do but I’m weird. Rather it’s reasonable cooperative efforts. What you see now is antagonistic.

Nobody’s asking for that though. I’m nobody so it’s ok.

We have a sign like this on our property. It’s “cute”. common enough, so I don’t think much about it. I didn’t put it there.

But it reflects a much different attitude. Very USA.

Then again, in Ireland they put broken glass on top of stone walls to shred anybody’s arms that try to cross over.

I’m not against protecting what’s yours. But the USA in general is paranoid about it.

I’m used to this kind of sight. But it’s objectively strange. It’s a collective American xenophobia and paranoia.

=====

Oh, the USA can never be Sweden. It wouldn’t work. Different histories.

But we can learn.

It’ll always be different. Look at India.

India has copied a LOT of US successes in business models. education, etc. But India isn’t the USA and couldn’t be.

But they took a lot of the good and ran with it.

I love the unique academic papers coming out of India higher education. They use some Brahma logic which makes for fascinating reading.

Hillary Clinton right there is simply a megaphone for a standard Koch brothers thing.

Free trade
Free market

If you see things from:
3.4.1 Citizens for a Sound Economy
3.4.2 Americans for Prosperity
3.4.3 Cato Institute
3.4.4 Freedom Partners
Concerned Veterans for America.

It’s Koch.

I’d like to see 3rd party myself. But everybody’s stuck on 2. I got blamed for Bush’s loss in 1992, because I voted for Perot instead of Bush.

But I wasn’t GOING to vote for Bush. Drove me nuts. I like a 3rd party option.

=====

quote doesn’t surprise me. It’s standard neolib / libertarian talk.

Clinton’s a standard neolib. So’s Trump. Trump repackaged it cleverly in a tricky way which I’ll give kudos for but neolib is neolib.

=====

Not at all. Only difference, thanks to Jeff Session’s “War On Drugs” -ish Fed Heavy no tolerance move, it’s ham-fisted and Trump’s stuck riding it out.

=====

Remember the 90s? What significant difference was there between Clinton border policy and today?

None except this time it’s naked and blunt.

=====

 

They don’t see eye to eye on everything. But what they do see eye to eye on – and this is significant: PRIVATIZATION.
 
There is NO PLACE you can find in Trump’s term that isn’t marked by neoliberal privatization.
 
Koch: neoliberal privatization.
Trump: neoliberal privatization.
 
They disagree on many things.
