I’m disappointed in you PersnicketyPants; I expected better. There is no comparison between Thatcher and Warren - only that Thatcher too lived through misogyny and discrimination but her politics did not reflect the working class so just having a female premiere isn't enough. Read more

I wanted to add though Warren handled them woefully the group that was chanting her down was “The Powerful Parent Network” who opposes Warren’s opposition against charter schools, which is backed by the NAACP. Read more

I would recommend Richard D Wolff’s work and Noam Chomsky. Check out Michael Brook’s channel on Youtube. Yanis Varoufakis’ A Brief history of Capitalism and Ha-Joon Chang’s 23 Things about Capitalism are must reads; I would suggest using the library or a local bookstore rather than Amazon if you can.

“Smited” is wrong; it isn’t a word. Smitten or smote would have been better, though I guess “smitten” carries a sense of being struck with love. Maybe someone could kindly enlighten me on the correct use of past participle vs simple (?) past tense here.

I forgot to add: thanks - I am going to add Chomsky’s Year 501 to my reading list and I will now be on the look out for the 1619 books. Much appreciated!

If there was a just god she would have smited these forced-birthers by now. Sometimes I wish there was a hell I could damn them to.

I’ve got no interest in this movie (well, I shouldn’t say “no interest”; after all I did click on the link) but it was curious to see Les Twins and even Idris Elba in this.

The 1619 project collection of essays are really good reads but admittedly I have not read all because of the monthly limit for free access. They are so well written that I feel the essays themselves should be something that should be taught and analysed in schools and be part of national curriculum; we can all dream. Read more

Chomsky’s Manufacturing Consent and Klein’s Shock Doctrine should be on everyone’s reading list, if not already read. Read more

I would urge one, if haven’t already, to go to local library and read Shock Doctrine by Naomi Klein and Manufactured Consent by Noam Chomsky
