a major issue in Bruno Latour’s work is DIPLOMACY
these paragraphs show the potential interdisciplinary melt down in a major conference on primates and humans. The end of these paragraphs says it turned out well.
Right now, more than ever, creative DIPLOMACY is needed to address the Anthropocene and Gaia. A new PhD that I follow wrote a new…[Read more]
Bruno Latour in a re tweet today
Like Bernie, Bruno has a track record.
Radical for its times was predominant centring around & from Women’s scholarly activity in Primatology, the focus on gendered knowledge production & the peaceful meeting of diverse Scientists & Humanists at height of the #ScienceWars. D. Haraway E. Fox-Keller, R.Hinde with us!

Debates over Warren to the side, this @politico article – perhaps inadvertently – illustrates why @jacobinmag has become such a great & important magazine. It and @curaffairs are easily 2 of the most exciting new additions to the media landscape in years https://t.co/GMmcB5NPGr

Charge against @MaxBlumenthal dropped not only cause it was false but because DOJ didn’t want Max to fight back by putting right-wing Venezuela opposition on trial.
Prosecutors will wish they had never filed a charge. Max will uncover how he was targeted. https://t.co/EqdyNPdaLw

BREAKING: The US government has DROPPED ITS BOGUS CASE against me and @NotConq.
I was hauled out of my house by a team of cops, jailed for two days, and maliciously defamed due to the lies of the US-backed Venezuelan opposition.
I plan to seek justice.https://t.co/Wm7Yl8cL2T

Returning to this.

The aggressive arrogance and utter contempt for basic transparency on display here is stunning. Usually candidates hide these attributes until they win. If this is how he behaves as a small-town Mayor, imagine what he'd be like if he wields real power pic.twitter.com/HDDGmnc2OG

I just watched the entire interview
he does not do politics as a horse race
he does politics of engagement, of an ongoing campaign, a politics adequate for the times
by the way?
what time are we in?
we used to be in the Holocene in geological time. Now we are in the Anthropocene.
we used to look forward to progress. Now we face dire…[Read more]
Bernie’s secret weapon is CAMPAIGN
Well, it is not a secret, it is who Bernie is, has been and always be, namely building a coalition
I looked up CAMPAIGN on the web. Started out with military definition.
a series of military operations intended to achieve a particular objective, confined to a particular area, or in…

all the stuff in the hearing about the sanctity of the vote
all those constutional professors
where have the dems been for the last several decades?
were they afraid to stand on the constitution?
were they afraid of who might vote and not support their neo liberal agenda?
or, were they too busy, living off the legacy of the New Deal, and…[Read more]
it gives subsidies to the poor
they need to earn every nickle
now they can get to work so they can get their food stamps
now less need for more roads and since all cities in the US are broke because of past growth and now little money for maintenance
could this be a smart move, even though it helps the poor?
