A difficult but enlightening article

Understand: Police officers are part of the state monopoly on violence and all police training reinforces this monopoly as a cornerstone of police work, a source of honor and pride.

Tesla reportedly fired 2 workers after Elon Musk said they could stay home to avoid the coronavirus

"I'd like to be super clear that if you feel the slightest bit ill or even uncomfortable, please do not feel obligated to come to work," Elon Musk told Tesla workers at the depths of the coronavirus pandemic in March.

But despite Musk saying it was "totally ok" to stay home, two employees told the Washington Post they were served termination notices in June after opting to not come to work as Musk illegally opened the factory amid local shelter-in-place orders.

The two workers, Carlos Gabriel and Jessica Naro, said Tesla's human resources department cited their inability to reach them when they did not show up for work. However, they also believe the move is connected to speaking out about working conditions in May in a separate Post report.

Tesla did not respond to a re

Scientists’ warning on affluence


"For over half a century, worldwide growth in affluence has continuously increased resource use and pollutant emissions far more rapidly than these have been reduced through better technology. The affluent citizens of the world are responsible for most environmental impacts and are central to any future prospect of retreating to safer environmental conditions. We summarise the evidence and present possible solution approaches. Any transition towards sustainability can only be effective if far-reaching lifestyle changes complement technological advancements. However, existing societies, economies and cultures incite consumption expansion and the structural imperative for growth in competitive market economies inhibits necessary societal change."

Agents Provocateurs Are Still A Real Threat To Our Movements

As ridiculous as that might sound, there is some sketchy business going on at some of these protests. Mysterious, all-black-clad white window smashers with umbrellas in Minneapolis. Mysterious, all-black-clad white women tagging businesses with Black Lives Matter and being run off by an actual black woman protestor for their trouble in another city. Mysterious pallets of bricks, allegedly showing up on city streets. Is it Antifa? Is it white supremacists? Is it the police? Whoever is behind these curious actions, the issue of agent provocateurs is real and is an ever-present challenge for organizations, movements, and protests.

Collapse is a short documentary examining the crisis shocked into motion by the COVID-19 pandemic as the final breakdown of capitalist society. The film looks at a number of topics, including great power competition, the lockdown, the collapse of social dependence, unemployment and automation to present an understanding of our historical moment as, simply, "the beginning of an end".

American capitalism is predatory, and American politics are corrupt: The same thing is true in England and the same in France; but in all these three countries the dominating fact is that whenever the people get ready to change the government, they can change it.

¿Con qué reemplazamos algo que ya no sirve?
Por sexto día consecutivo las protestas, los toques de queda, los saqueos y la ira sacuden a Estados Unidos de un extremo a otro: de Nueva York a Los Ángeles, de Florida a Seattle e, incluso, las cercanías de la Casa Blanca. Al menos 75 ciudades de todo EE.UU. se han sumado a las protestas. Unas 40 ciudades han impuesto toques de queda, pero las manifestaciones continúan. Las autoridades han desplegado la Guardia Nacional (la fuerza militar de reserva que EE.UU. usa para situaciones de emergencia) en unos 15 estados. Trump fue llevado de emergencia el pasado viernes a un búnker secreto, ante la cercanía de los manifestantes a la Casa Blanca. Con los manifestantes cerca enfrentados con la policía y tras reportarse incendios en las cercanías, la Casa Blanca apagó casi totalmente sus luces. Los disturbios de esta semana en Estados Unidos son los más graves que se reportan en el país desde 1968, cuando Martin Luther King fue asesinado.
