The way I see it (and I don't entirely dismiss the possibility this is an epic cop-out) is that their defensive position is practically unassailable. There is no physical way on earth to take down a corrupt superpower. Best I can do is watch and giggle as the whole thing comes crashing down on it's own. I've been patiently waiting for western capitalist economics to dissolve completely for the best part of a decade but it never does, it just teeters on the edge of oblivion with no end in sight.  :argh!:

Dunno if this is old news but it looks like biology 1.0 just got more complex

Looks like they're having a hard time dealing with life in the uncanny valley? They ought to go back to masturbating to hentai and leave digital near perfection to us hardened perverts  :fap:

So maybe this is America's last opportunity to take down China before their "Superpower" status is demoted to "third world shithole"? Maybe NK could provide the in?

So, surprise surprise, there are digital WMD's hidden somewhere... somewhere... something... TERRURISM!! CYBER-TERRURISM (The scary kind - it could harm your Facebook!)

It's been proven that the US public don't specifically require a coherent narrative to buy in, so why go to all the trouble?

Newsflash: Brown people are no longer badwrong. Oceania has always been at war with yellow people.

Every rule has an exception. I suggest we devote our resources to finding the one snail that likes cheese, thereby catapulting him to international fame and celebrity

Corey Robin has pointed out some frightening rhetoric coming from the NYPD

Listening to these cries from the cops—of blood on people’s hands, of getting on a war footing—it’s hard not to think that a Dolchstosslegende isn’t being born. Throw in the witches brew of race and state violence that kicked it off, the nearly universal obeisance to the feelings and sensitivities of the most powerful and militarized sectors of the state, and the helplessness and haplessness of the city’s liberal voices, and you begin to get a sense of the Weimar-y vibe (and not the good kind) out there.

But whatever historical precedent comes to mind, one thing is clear.

The entire New York City establishment—not just De Blasio, but political, cultural, and economic elites—is terrified (or in support) of the cops. With the exception of this fairly cautious statement from Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams, himself a former police captain, not one of these figures has spoken out against the Freikorps-ish rhetoric emanating from the NYPD. It’s not that these men and women are spineless or gutless in a psychological or personal sense. It’s worse: They’re politically frightened, which is far more dangerous. Because they have no sense of an alternative base or source of power. After decades of being whipsawed by capital—you could trace this rot all the way back to 1975, if not even further—they’re simply not prepared to take on the police. Even if they wanted to.

Well that's fucking alarming.

Here's a scary thought, based on the predicted forthcoming robotics revolution. At the point where the robots take over even 20% of unskilled labour the prison industrial complex is going to turn into McDeathcamp
