    Stanford put a two-lecture talk by Alan Kay up recently (“How To Invent the Future”), and his 2nd talk ended pretty pessimistically but interesting nonetheless, and apropos to this post, actually:

    He posits that all the goodies of enlightened society — science, progress, knowledge, rights, law, democracy — are “needs” not “wants” and are not universal among societies . . . they are not in the basic toolbox that societies share at some deep/subconscious level.

    So Hitler, Franco, Bush, Trump — conservatism in general — what they bring to the world isn’t an aberration, it’s just a reversion to the mean.

    The Enlightenment was the aberration!

    Objectively, six months in we’ve taken maybe 2% of the damage the USA took over the 8 years of the Bush Admin.

    But the potential for high fuckery is so much greater given how committed conservatives are this go around.

    Republicans actually lost the Senate in 2001 and only regained it in 2003, leaving them with only 4+ years to do their worst until losing it again in 2007.

    _They Live_ was a documentary.
