Craig Hodges: 'Jordan didn't speak out because he didn't know what to say' | Sport | The Guardian
a.k.a. don't be like mike

"In October 1991, the Bulls were invited to the White House to meet President Bush.
The assault on King remained fresh on his mind, as did the US bombing of Iraq that January, and so Hodges wrote an impassioned eight-page letter to the president - on behalf of 'most specifically, the African Americans who are not able to come to this great edifice and meet the leader of the nation in which they live.'

"[Hodges] wore a dashiki and George W, the president's son and a future occupant of the Oval Office, spoke slowly as if Hodges might not understand English. 'Where are you from?'

"'Chicago Heights, Illinois,' Hodges answered, amused at the way in which W's excitement at meeting the famous Bulls, which had him 'bouncing around like a kid' at his father's workplace, had disappeared into startled incomprehension."

Autocracy: Rules for Survival | by Masha Gessen | NYR Daily | The New York Review of Books
"One of the falsehoods in the Clinton speech was the implied equivalency between civil resistance and insurgency. This is an autocrat’s favorite con, the explanation for the violent suppression of peaceful protests the world over."

Rule #1: Believe the autocrat.
Rule #2: Do not be taken in by small signs of normality.
Rule #3: Institutions will not save you.
Rule #4: Be outraged.
Rule #5: Don’t make compromises.
Rule #6: Remember the future.

After the Fact - The New Yorker
"An American Presidential debate has a lot more in common with trial by combat than with trial by jury, which is what people are talking about when they say these debates seem 'childish': the outcome is the evidence. The ordeal endures."

"When we Google-know, Lynch argues, we no longer take responsibility for our own beliefs, and we lack the capacity to see how bits of facts fit into a larger whole. Essentially, we forfeit our reason and, in a republic, our citizenship."

"I am not, or not only, talking about right-wing contempt for the poor, although the dominance of compassionless conservatism is a sight to behold...

"What we learn from the refusal of Republican-controlled states to expand Medicaid, even though the federal government would foot the bill, is that punishing the poor has become a goal in itself, one worth pursuing even if it hurts rather than helps state budgets.

"...[T]he reality is that living longer in our ever-more-unequal society is very much a class thing: life expectancy at age 65 has risen a lot among the affluent, but hardly at all in the bottom half of the wage distribution, that is, among those who need Social Security most."

Interviews: Robert Wyatt | Features | Pitchfork
"
'Culture is pudding. It’s lovely and I’ll always eat one,' he says in the biography, talking about his take on the worlds of art and politics. 'But on its own, it’s not a full life’s diet for the brain. And the politics, to me, is indeed the protein.'
...
'There's the folky thing of: "Poor me, I'm a sensitive person in a cruel world." Or the pop thing of: "Hey, look at me, I'm sexy." I did that myself for a while... [b]ut then I thought, “I'd never sing ‘hey baby’ to my girlfriend, because she'd just laugh at me and think I was a complete idiot. I've got to start again and try to be honest with this.”'
...
'It may be an English thing, in a way, laughing it off at a distance and using that as self-protection. I mean, I don't want to be a professional cripple. And I don't see the suicide stuff as tragic. Basically, at that age, I looked at what adults were doing and how they wanted to earn money, and I really didn't want to do that. I wanted to go away. I have my moods like that a lot. I'm not a fighter in that sense at all.

'I don't think losing things—in my case, the use of my legs—really damages or hurts you. What hurts people a lot is taking humiliation. A lot of the wars going on right now in the Middle East aren't about poverty and exploitation. They’re about humiliation. For a long time, certainly the British and French have been humiliating and dismissing the people of the Middle East, and encouraging people like Israel to do the same. Israel started out as a socialist state, but we always encouraged them to become rather racist and look down on the local inhabitants, which they now do. It's sad that's happened.'
...
'I just don't think I write the kind of music that I can see crowds of people singing in football stadiums. Some of us are simply witnesses, and I hope there's a value in that.'
...
'America reinvented how to be a group, a people, that hasn't got a race, but nevertheless has a national identity. Potentially, America is really the greatest, but it's not yet, I don't think. It's still too much like an old-fashioned empire, waving the stick and dropping too many bombs on too many people.'

"It was once held up as an indisputable virtue, virtually synonymous with prudence. Don’t get too carried away with any one thing. Don’t become too set in your ways. That was the message from parents and teachers. That was the cue the culture gave.

"But America these days is an immoderate land of fixed opinions and outsize fixations. More and more we wallow: in our established political philosophy; in our preferred interest group; in our pastime of choice; in whichever health routine we’ve turned into a health religion."

What Would Orwell Make of Obama's Drone Policy? - Ta-Nehisi Coates - The Atlantic
Orwell: "Thus political language has to consist largely of euphemism, question-begging and sheer cloudy vagueness."

Adam Serwer: "The government needs the approval of a judge to detain a suspected terrorist. To kill one, it need only give itself permission."

TNC: Consider the notion of "imminence." Last year Eric Holder claimed that a lethal strike against an American citizen can only be made if to protect against "an imminent threat of violent attack." But the white paper states that imminence "does not require that the United States to have clear evidence that a specific attack on U.S. persons or interests will take place in the significant future." Effectively, the word "imminence" has no meaning beyond "we think you're a bad guy."

I find it so ironic (actually, disgusting) that...
'...that the media continues to disseminate this image of the scary terrorist looking to undermine Western “freedom” and “values,” who is generally portrayed as a non-white/foreign individual, follower of Islam/any other “Asian”/”Middle Eastern” religion, etc., only to further perpetuate hatred of a people and embed irrational fear into the populace. Then, when something like the shooting today happens, they throw their hands in the air and deliver the usual “How could something like this happen?” Really? Well, I have a pretty good idea…'

How the ‘war on women’ quashed feminist stereotypes - The Washington Post
"The image of the feminist as a mirthless, hirsute, sex-averse succubus is a friendly-fire casualty of the Republican 'war on women.' It's a grave loss to conservatives, who have used this faithful foot soldier as a comfortably grotesque stand-in for the real people whose liberties they have sought to conscribe: women."
"In activism, an image problem becomes a structural problem: Twisted but resonant stereotypes make women hesitant to identify with the movement to expand their rights. And if women won’t organize and advocate on their own behalf, the work of anti-feminists is done."
"In 2012, the anti-everything platform was occupied not by feminist agitators but the GOP politicians they were battling."

"El Librotraficante" Tony Diaz Defies Ethnic Studies Book Ban with Caravan to Arizona
JUAN GONZALEZ: On Monday, El Libro-Traficante is set to launch a small caravan to bring carloads of ethnic studies books into Arizona that were banned by public school officials in Tucson after the city suspended its acclaimed Mexican American Studies program due to a state ban on the teaching of ethnic studies. The banned books include Rethinking Columbus: The Next 500 Years, edited by Bill Bigelow and Bob Peterson; Pedagogy of the Oppressed by Paulo Freire; Occupied America: A History of Chicanos by Rodolfo Acuña_; and Chicano: The History of the Mexican Civil Rights Movement by F. Arturo Rosales.
...
TONY DIAZ: Evidently, he wanted to replace Mexican-American studies with a real, live class on doublespeak, because that’s all doublespeak. Huppenthal knows that Americans would not tolerate a direct ban on literature. So he has actually taken oppression and updated it. At the end of the day, yes, there is actually a law, America, in Arizona, to prohibit courses in high schools. Let that sink in.

The No-Growth Trap | The National Interest
"Anti-immigrant agitation, racial and religious prejudice, rancorous public discourse, political stalemate and paralysis, eroding generosity toward the disadvantaged—all are the predictable pathologies that ensue from stagnating incomes and living standards... This latest round of such pathologies simply reminds us that even those societies whose citizens talk the best game of having advanced beyond caring about further gains in material living standards—the Dutch, the Swiss, even the Scandinavians—are no less subject to this familiar frustration than their more transparently materialistic American cousins."
