    Fascism

    I could not agree more. After all, when people think of mid-20th century European fascism, the first thing that comes to mind is the corporatism. Yes, clearly the corporatist part of fascism was the worst part, the most relevant part, and the part we should concern ourselves with most with when we look back at that era.
  2. It certainly seems that way. Don't really understand how one could equate moderation with cynicism.
  3. The question IMO about the Rashida Tlaib mf-er incident is not what the EVDs and Rams of the world think, obviously they will spin anything their way. The question is what does the average Dem voter think? The progressive activist class is becoming more and more of an echo chamber where they think this is what people want to hear because they are so fired up all the time, and I really don't think it is what people want to hear. The reason people liked Obama was because he was calm and stoic in the face of his raving lunatic Tea Party opposition who were always just one more tan suit away from a massive brain aneurysm.
  4. To be fair, Weston is doing an industrial park at the former Midland Steel site.
  5. For anyone who wants to have serious discussion about this issue instead of just trading barbs back and forth, this Ezra Klein Show interview with moral psychologist Jonathan Haidt (author of "The Righteous Mind" and "The Coddling of the American Mind") is just about the best thing I've heard on the subject. Both sides of the coin are considered. https://art19.com/shows/the-ezra-klein-show/episodes/dc124b20-bcbd-4544-9b2a-75ca93aa868d/
  6. North Moreland Blvd can be used instead of Chapman for an intact version of what BigDipper is describing. Also Hampshire in Cleveland Heights.
  7. I'm not trying to downplay gentrification, it does happen especially on the coasts and it's certainly something to be aware of, but a lot of these types of protestors are just a slightly different kind of NIMBY.
  8. Man, during my years in Southwest Ohio (06-10), Newport was the place to be. I saw Avatar in 3D there.
  9. Related - I saw a few parked cars with German plates in the past few years and got really excited. Then I realized there's a subset of German car enthusiasts who like to go to Germany, buy their cars, get them shipped back to the US, and keep the German plate on the front. I guess I didn't look at the rear plates on those cars haha.
  10. Just a quick one that comes to mind. There's a huge urban redevelopment with a bunch of historic buildings called Kings Cross. It's behind the Kings Cross and St. Pancras railroad stations. In that development there's an Indian restaurant called Dishoom... Check that out. http://www.kingscross.co.uk/dishoom
  11. Not only tax advantages but the inherent cost advantages of greenfield development over infill. Especially when we keep building new roads.
  12. Different owners have different philosophies. Some would rather wait and get high rents while others just want to fill up their building ASAP and increase from there.
  13. The French pretty much have a tradition of doing this every now and again. July of 1789 and May of 1968 being the most famous examples.
