Trump has been subject to a military coup behind the scenes – this is the beginning of the end for his presidency

"He is now so enfeebled that the Generals and Admirals are not just emboldened to ignore his orders with contempt... They are dictating foreign policy even when it directly undermines the support of Trump’s base."

Savour it with every fibre of your being, because such events come seldom and are usually over in minutes. And don’t stare directly at it: the flash of hope could cauterise the retina. But for the moment at least, the madness of the Trump presidency has been partially eclipsed.

"That's too bad..." ?

"The young white revolutionary remains, in general, far more romantic than a black one. White people have managed to get through entire lifetimes in this euphoric state, but black people haven't been so lucky. A black man who sees the world the way John Wayne, for example, sees it... would not be an eccentric patriot, but a raving maniac."
-James Baldwin

"I wish that somebody, in 1895, 1897 or at least in 1903, had realized the fundamental significance of cinema's emergence and produced a comprehensive record of the new medium's emergence: interviews with the audiences; a systematic account of the narrative strategies, scenography and camera positions as they developed year by year; an analysis of the connections between the emerging language of cinema and different forms of popular entertainment which coexisted with it. Unfortunately, such records do not exist. Instead, we are left with newspaper reports, diaries of cinema's inventors, programs of film showings and other bits and pieces—a set of random and unevenly distributed historical samples" — Lev Manovich, "The Language of New Media"

Donald Trump, Stephen Bannon and the Coming Crisis in American National Life

"...Few would deny that the U.S. has been in a serious political crisis for some time, marked by intense partisan division, a very severe recession, war abroad and, above all, a breakdown in the ties between the country and its political establishment."

A historical theory may provide a window into what’s next for the U.S.

How to Culture Jam a Populist in Four Easy Steps | Caracas Chronicles

"Populism can only survive amid polarization. It works through caricature, through the unending vilification of a cartoonish enemy. "

We tend to think resisting a populist is like boxing: a question of punching him harder than he punches you. It's not. It's like judo: the much subtler, trickier art of turning his strength against him.

"information warfare is not about creating an alternate truth, but eroding our basic ability to distinguish truth at all"

The world order we know is already over, and Russia is moving fast to grab the advantage. Can Trump figure out the new war in time to win it?

To see the effect that xenophobia, anti-intellectualism and populist rage can have on a nation's culture, we need look no further than the life of Albert Einstein.
