the only possibly good outcome of all the bullshit politics going on in the west right now is if in 16 months Jeremy Corbyn is the PM of the UK and Bernie Sanders is the President of the United States and a new era of leftism is ushered in to the west, emboldening labor unions and taxing the fuck out of big tech to fund new public infrastructure.

of course, even in this scenario, i envision a future where the capitalist/neoliberal class lets the world burn anyway so the fragments of humanity that survive can be taught, “At the end of days, the two major superpowers of the 20th century had socialist-led governments, and look what that did to the world!”
