i think one major flaw in the narrative constructed in that essay is that it assumes the democrat and republican party platforms haven't changed over time. both parties have moved quite a ways to the right over the decades in question, and the makeup of their constituent bases changed as well.

i definitely think irrationality and demonization of the other plays a massive and important role in the current state of american and global politics, but i also think identifying it as the problem rather than a symptom with many contributing factors is a dangerous oversimplification.

i like David Harvey's Anti-Capitalist Chronicles for talky bits, and the Random Movement podcast and the Hospital Records podcast for tunes. actually i used to do a tunes podcast myself but vocal dysphoria is a thing and also it turns out it's a lot of work to get 2 hours of fresh beats a week when you have a day job

are they bankrupt / closing? i got cranky with korg for discontinuing their drm servers and making my bought-and-paid-for soft synths useless, but i would hate to see them close entirely.

i think the bad part about this whole situation is something dan olson described pretty well in his video on the topic: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LuScIN4emyo

which is that the way youtube has handled the situation is calculated to place maximal responsibility and effort on the part of individual channels rather than on the infrastructure
