💖Meet your new hosts, Darcie Wilder and Sarah Crowe!💖 The four of us discuss the different capitalist and white supremacist factions surrounding the “Stop the Steal” riots at the Capitol. The q supporters, the cops, congress, and tech people all have a role to play in expanding our already draconian surveillance/carceral state. We also discuss the wider conditions that causes to the constant middle class and working class identity crisis in the US and navigate the ongoing weaponization of trauma.

We revisit Hito Steyerl’s “In Defense of Poor Image” to make a point about naiveté of the American left during the Obama administration. The web was a frontier, meaning conditions have always been ripe for dissemination of far right disinformation as well as highly polished neoliberalism. It’s a positive development that left popular discourse is able to identify properties like Hillbilly Elegy and Trial of the Chicago 7, as purposeful distortions of American injustice and poverty. How can our messaging compete with billion dollar media and political campaigns dedicated to convincing the masses that societal problems are their personal failings?
