9/11, 9/11, what went down with building 7? It’s a mystery to this day!! That’s right folks it’s 9/11, so we went off on another conspiracy theory episode. The far right is able to weaponize justified mistrust in liberal institutions to further their genocidal political projects, and the left doesn’t have enough power to counter the disinformation. So Martin Noakes keeps cranking out the hits for the antivax cranks. Meanwhile, the post and NYPD are able to work together dox protestors with impunity. In a political climate where fringe groups are being lauded as heroes for murdering protestors, it’s pretty clear what the message is. But hey, young creatives should snag that press where ya can!

We discuss the bleak the state of art institutions. Schools and museums have been laying off staff without many cuts to executive pay or dips into endowments. They started with low level freelancers, moved on to anyone who to dared unionize, and are now making serious cuts to full-time positions. We use the viral gun-toting wealthy couple and their Louvre of a house to compare institutions to the democratic party—can they be reformed within capitalism, should they be abolished, and how?

Hey friends! Send your confused relatives #8toAbolition. The best the democrats can do is pretend to ban chokeholds, it’s sickening. We must counteract the Deray-ification of activism, support longstanding anti-gentrification tenants rights orgs in your neighborhood. We talk about all that stuff plus the tricky balance of participating in the protests and staying safe from the second covid wave as well as the disagreements between the more communist or more anarchist wings of the left (and I GUESS the social democrats and liberals).
