I'm trying to say that there was an 80s we could have had, and 40 years later there's still a 2020s we could have.
It seems like we've lost decades but it's actually not too late. It's always just as close as wanting it. Time means nothing in the place where the glow comes from.
But you have to want it.
You have to know it's there, or even just hope and guess, and then you have to reach in to the dreamspace and try to hold the glow in your head, in your heart, in your hands and feet.
This article was quite interesting. Another downside of fast fashion, is the next part of the chain: rags, a common way to reclaim old fabric.
Let this also serve as a reminder when it comes to clothes, never bin them, send them somewhere else (with few exceptions).

"Never sleep if you want to win" bros are to me like incels --- particularly disturbing, because I find them reflections of myself in a particularly toxic mirror.
I, personally, work a little most every day, because that happens to fit my style. My job is astoundingly flexible (research position, so no teaching; theory, so not tied to a lab spatially or temporally). And there's basically a continuum of activity between "serious work" and faffing off. I can read old physics papers or brush up on math that's tangential to my research project, and it's pretty much like a paid hobby. I can get totally high on that legal Massachusetts weed and scribble down ideas for new things to investigate, and sometimes in the morning they still make sense. Watching a math video to see if I can recommend it to a prof colleague as a teaching aid is only slightly more demanding than kicking back with the BA test kitchen.
Lucky in physics, unlucky in love.

Double check that your voter registration for 2020 is current. Do it now, the deadline will be sooner than you think.
It's about how current teens/boys are being conditioned into misogyny, particularly in sports.
My wee boy is pretty sportsy as it is - I'd hate for him to have these Issues.
curious what other guys think here - specially parents of boys.

@remulacfrommars If that doesn't scream to employees "unionize my labor force", I don't know what does.

I disagree substantially with Jacobin's take here. Industries benefit enormously from being co-located. the answer isn't to prop up failing rural towns (with corresponding environmental footprints) via guilty bougie ruralism, but to work on a relocation policy and to bring housing prices down in the urban areas.
This is an interesting article from Jacobin.
Jacobin is somewhat hero-worshippy re Bernie, but I like their stuff that isn't related to Bernie. Always fascinating.
I do disagree in the take here. Some people HATE taxes, period, end of story. Some people hate WASTED taxes. Both exist. The writer elides the first in favor of the second.

Note that the CWA is involved. It's an AFL-CIO affiliate. Anyone know much about CWA?
