The weird stuff that happened after 9/11, if you weren't around for it 

First of all, pretty much everyone went to the gas station for some reason. We heard there'd be price gouging on gas

Everyone thought their pissant little town in the middle of nowhere would be a terror target, kinda like those people who thought antifa was coming to their town.

People bought french wine and poured it I to the sewer to protest France opposing the Iraq War on the UN security council

Big Tech has monopoly profits, and it's so consolidated the industry can agree on how to spend that money to get its policies through. Antitrust is how we starve the corporate beast, shrink it until it fits in a bathtub!

I think the worst part of that post is implying that gays brought the AIDS crisis on themselves by being too sexual, even though the federal government deliberately refused to contain the disease as deaths mounted, not only because it is horrifically homophobic and racist, but because we are living through another instance of the federal government refusing to contain a disease that disproportionately effects the poor and POC.

To explain why, I've published a new editorial for EFF's Deeplinks, called "Starve the Beast: Monopoly Power and Political Corruption."

eff.org/deeplinks/2021/08/star

Here's my core thesis: monopolized industries have high profits, which they can spend to legalize abusive conduct.

*And!*

Monopolized industries *also* have a small number of dominant companies, which makes it easier to agree on a lobbying agenda.

The reality is that we are not in the grips of a battle for generational supremacy - rather, we're fighting a class war.

The rich - old, young and middle-aged - set the world on fire. High savings cause low interest rates, to be sure, but the savings - like all forms of wealth - are in the hands of the rich, not the old.

Luther famously claimed he posted 95 theses on the church door, but the paper he posted only had 94 of them. When the Pope asked what the final thesis was, Luther said "thesis nuts in your mouth. Gottem!" and this is believed to have been the cause of the 30 years war.
