love her

"any time you engage with people who are on the front lines of any type of being targeted or suffering. the extent that you align yourself and then you're open to learn from them, it means that you expose yourself even if you're not legally vulnerable to endure the conditions that they're enduring. like between emotional connectors in terms of learning from each other, in terms of shared intelligence. that there is a bonding that goes on and you carry that with you." ;)

“We keep our communities functioning because we love them. We will not abandon them even when they turn on us, because we love them, and the state uses that labor to stabilize itself”

“We keep our communities from going crazy, like they kept us from going crazy. and that labor is expropriated by the state.”

“Do you see the beauty in that? It’s an impossible task, but it’s one completely worthy of you.”

Quote
Rawls didn’t emerge out of nowhere, and despite the story that’s often taught by political philosophers, he didn’t revive political philosophy from its postwar slumbers. His political thought was part of a liberal response to changes in the twentieth-century administrative state—as Anne Kornhauser suggests, he’s one part of a longer legal tradition of critical liberalism—and also as a particular American response to the changes in global politics after World War Two. 

To take a couple of examples: on the one hand, Rawls developed a vision of society that flattens certain types of conflict and prioritizes certain forms of consensus quite common among postwar “liberal consensus” theorists. On the other, Rawls also borrowed ideas from liberal critics of the administrative state—for instance, Frank Knight, one of the early neo-liberal economists at Chicago. These connections to mid-century liberalism were often submerged in Rawls’s published philosophical writings, so his unpublished materials collected by archivists at Harvard University are crucial to making sense of them. But it’s clear when reading those materials that Rawls’s account of society and the state emerged from a particular ideological constellation in the postwar US, when many liberals were skeptical about the extension of the state and were looking for novel ways to both legitimize and critique it.

Quote from: Republic, 557a
...and presumably, it [the political regime] turns into a democracy when the poor are victorious, when they kill some of their opponents and send others into exile, give an equal share in the constitution and public office to those who remain, and when public office in the city is allocated for the most part by lot.

I don't mind Jamie but she's kind of weak in those sort of arguments even being fair that it's kind of hard to really articulate a stateless society.

I don't believe in it, personally.

if we can just shove the protestant work ethic into communism, we've solved it
just need to write the protestant manifesto for an ambitious crossover like the MCU

FACT CHECK: We don't even need professors anymore after the revolution.

"More correctly, the shell in which the cultural construction and self-education of Communist man will be enclosed, will develop all the vital elements of contemporary art to the highest point. Man will become immeasurably stronger, wiser and subtler; his body will become more harmonized, his movements more rhythmic, his voice more musical. The forms of life will become dynamically dramatic. The average human type will rise to the heights of an Aristotle, a Goethe, or a Marx. And above this ridge new peaks will rise."


Note: Probably should rewrite this in a gender neutral way, do better Trotsky.

DO people really think EDUCATION can exist in a socialized system? How about Health Care? Who is going to run schools and hospitals when the money is redistributed based on citizenship or residency?!
