Our Revolution’s Logic - The American Mind
In 2010, Angelo Codevilla reintroduced the notion of "the ruling class" back into American popular discourse. In 2017, he described contemporary American politics as a "cold civil war." Now he applies the "logic of revolution" to our current political scene.

Elites like Amazon’s Jeff Bezos think they’re being philanthropic. But they could do so much more. - Recode
“Giridharadas’s new book, which critiques “The Elite Charade of Changing the World,” argues that our highly unequal society has fostered “a set of bullshit ideas that we all sort of passively believe” — for example, that alumni of McKinsey and Goldman Sachs should be in charge of charitable foundations, when in fact those organizations have created many of the problems the foundations seek to solve.” 🤔

Music school grants for poor students going to ‘comfortable middle class’ | Education | The Guardian
The money should be supporting music in state schools, says Robert Verkaik, the author of Posh Boys, How the English Public Schools Ruin Britain. “Taxpayers have the right to know why so much is being given to well-off families to pay the fees for their children to attend high-profile private schools like these. Is it any wonder that the world of dance and music is over-represented by performers who come from wealthy backgrounds?” he says.

The world has decided bottom up is the way it's going to stop climate change — Quartz
I think that was the only choice all along.
At no point are entrenched elites going to give up power and privilege.
Even if the participants wanted to, capitalism and its oligarchical structure will always aggregate power and privilege to itself.
This means giving up the trappings and conveniences of inexpensive airfare and imported food.

This is a generational conflict. People born before 1990 will never truly see the outcome of what we've done.

Foucault On Obscurantism: ‘They Made Me Do It!’ | Critical-Theory.com
Now, as Open Culture notes, Foucault admitted to his friend John Searle that he intentionally complicated his writings to appease his French audience. Searle claims Foucault told him: “In France, you gotta have ten percent incomprehensible, otherwise people won’t think it’s deep–they won’t think you’re a profound thinker.” When Searle later asked Pierre Bourdieu if he thought this was true, Bourdieu insisted it was much worse than ten percent. You can listen to Searle’s full comments below.
