I love the word wellspring; it is beautiful.

I’ve read this book. It’s quite dramatic; by that I mean it stays with you after you read it. I was haunted by this book for days after I read it. The American War - as it called in Vietnam - was mind-blowingly horrible. Defense Secretary McNamara might be one of the worst dudes ever.

I highly recommend this book. I think it is super important and relevant to our modern conditions. This is a book that shows there was a Mai Lai Massacre every month for many years; it’s about racism, empire, the Cold War, international law, Search & Destroy missions where there was an incentive to kill, and I could go on and on.

I think staying curious is the only thing—never being satisfied with the stuff you already know you like, always finding new stuff to get into. Then you’re always young with respect to the stuff you’re reading, listening to, watching, doing.

The peak of union density in the US following the Second World War was lower than in other wealthy democracies, and its trough is now lower, too (France actually has smaller percentage of union members than the US, but union contracts cover almost the entire workforce.). In no other advanced country is the entire political economy as relentlessly opposed to unionization as it is here. The U.S. has the most hostile anti-union management/ownership class, and corresponding conservative politicians and media to assist it, in the advanced world. The legal framework assumes that companies—the people who sign workers check—have a right to interfere with their right to choose a collective bargaining agent. Workers do not get a corresponding right in the United States to participate with management in investment decisions. Anti-union activity is flourishing billion dollar consulting business. Laws to fight it are toothless. Today, decades after the National Labor Relations Act became law, Republicans don’t accept its basic legitimacy—and do everything they can to undermine the NLRB.
