Glenn Greenwald warns government is expanding power amid coronavirus

Greenwald also noted that proponents of the Patriot Act in the wake of 9/11 had assured civil libertarians the law had a sunset provision. Yet, the law remains in effect nearly two decades later as a “permanent part of our political framework.”

“That is the great concern, how do you temporarily vest power in the hands of the state that might be necessary to preserve these liberties in the long term without simultaneously giving them those powers realistically even if you intend for it to be temporary in a way that becomes permanent?” he added.

Something for the left to think abt.

The reason everyone obsesses over the wants & needs of moderates is bc they r constantly threatening to vote for the other team/stay home. The party thinks the left will vote for them no matter what so we have 0 power & get treated like crap.

That’s why even though M4A and GND are overwhelmingly popular, voters choose Biden because they believe they must appease those finicky moderates. Progressives and leftists can be endlessly shit on (compared to nazis called toxic etc) bc they assume we will still vote blue anyway

The Populist’s Guide to 2020: A New Right and New Left are Rising

People are often confused by our politics and how much we end up in agreement. Ultimately, we have largely different policy prescriptions and beliefs. However, we do share a central diagnosis of the rot in this country, of how we got to this place, and a deep skepticism of power. It’s amazing how far you can get when you start in the same place with a shared understanding of reality. It’s a hell of a lot further than the shallow, fake civility politics that the forces of the status-quo say you must embrace-‚Keep quiet and hold still while they rip you to shreds.‘ We take the opposite view. Speak up. Make people uncomfortable. Don’t let the „experts“ convince you that better isn’t possible.
