I don't believe discussing history has to be discussing politics, but it is interesting how they are intersect.
I agree with Mike that discussing politics on XMCA is a lousy idea. And he's right it's also lousy times.
My attempt was to discuss history, in case anyone cares to make a distinction. At least I attempted to possess some self-control not to discuss too deeply the body politic.
I hoped to discuss futures, and how we might be a part of that. We should be concerned about our futures and consider what we can do about all that on the ground. It's not just about picking a winning candidate, nor complaining about the choices printed on the ballet, but yeah, in a bourgeois society it's easy to want more choices than what's on a Starbucks beverage menu, or should I say less choices than on a Starbucks beverage menu?
Perhaps thinking about political processes as a menu choice is the problem.
Maybe we need to become citizens again.
