baby boomer stuff, racism ment
Awkward reminder that racism is basically as prevalent in white millenials as in white boomers. Research suggests that racist boomers propagated their beliefs to their kids. A lot of the most important fash media personalities are white millenials (Milo, Tomi, Shapiro, PewDiePie).
U.S. millennials poll as less racist than boomers because more of them are PoC. The "racism will end when the old people die" argument only works if racists aren't permitted to keep passing down their beliefs without social cost. Deplatform bigots if you get the chance, and if you hear something racist, say something.
The state of capitalism
@Ferretsyndicate Marx may have not been right about everything, or even a lot of things, but I think he was curiously prescient when he stated (paraphrasing) "the fall of capitalism may be precluded by oscillation between "boom" and "bust" economies, ever increasing in frequency and intensity."
We're basically waiting for the pendulum to fall the other way, and see how much momentum it picked up along the way.
