Just finished KSBD Book 4. Fantastic reading experience, and a great way to get the message across.

“Messiah” was not a blasphemous or anti-Jewish title at the time, and messianic movements were fundamentally about throwing off Roman rule — POLITICAL movements depoliticized by our later deliberately smoothed-out understanding of the situation

@kate hmm well if we take right wing ideology as more-or-less a function of the interests of conservative sectors of the ruling class, then perhaps its in their interest to posit a magic bullet bc that would preclude the need for a complex, coordinated, expensive (read: "socialist") response. the same people i know who believe stuff like this also believe that weed cures cancer. and i mean, why would anyone trust biotech after what they did with opioids?

wild how in the past 40 years strikes and boycotts have gone from being collective action (I think boycotts are dumb collective action but they're still collective) to an entirely individualized thing; u gotta make sure u don't buy any Amazon products or go to Chick fil a or you're a bad person!!

So, let me re-phrase:

Government-run study, involving shortening the work week for government employees proves that productivity can be *gained* by shortening the work week.

Does business jump on that insight and clear opportunity to gain productivity *for free*, thus edging a competitive advantage on the market?

No. This happens only after unions get involved.

"Capitalism efficiently allocates resources" my arse.
