In An Uncivil War, Sargent explains why we fell into the ditch – and how to get out of it. Based on years of research and reporting, it reveals the unprecedented sophistication and ambition of the GOP`s tactics, including computer-generated gerrymandering, sneaky electoral moving, and the constant escalation of legislative hardball. We are also struck by other brutal, seemingly intractable problems, such as the gloomy turnout in the elections and powerful built-in temptations to overthrow the political terrain with unscrupulous partisan artifices. All this has been accompanied by intervention by foreign governments and an unprecedented level of political disinformation, which threatens to undermine the possibility of a common understanding on the facts and poses profound new challenges to the media`s ability to inform citizens. But the Republican Party is only part of the problem. As Sargent provocatively reveals, the Democrats share the guilt for helping to accelerate this crash. What? I agree 100% with the operation. What argument do you think I am making? Same www.laobserved.com/archive/2018/01/barnes_noble_close. This runs counter to the HN Directives in two respects. First of all, it is not civilized. Second, it is far below that: more extreme political actions are also widely supported. Both Liberals and Conservatives believe in war and see it as a necessary evil or a fundamental good.
Liberals may be against the death penalty, but like conservatives, they believe in the effectiveness of murder: they had little to say about Obama`s extrajudicial drone executions, death lists, and tuesdays of terror, and Democrats criticized the assassination of Qasem Soleimani in 2020 primarily on procedural grounds: “He didn`t consult Congress!” Torture is celebrated a thousand times a day on television in police professionals and action movies, and most people accept imprisonment – years of relentless psychological torture – as a necessary fact of social life. Economic constraint at the international level, through sanctions, trade agreements and development credits, is self-evident. At home, the threat of employment, homelessness, hunger and misery, as well as debt, taxes, fines and fees of all kinds are naturalized in such a way that they are rarely recognized as a form of political domination. The retail apocalypse isn`t primarily fueled by a lack of revenue, there`s a lot of meat on these bones where businesses can survive forever and many continue to thrive. Rather, it is fueled by bad business decisions. Hedge fund buyouts, which weigh on retail chains with huge debt. Complex expansion programs designed to enrich a certain group of owners or executives at the expense of business health. And so on. B&N is just another example of how retail chains have become toys for the economic elite. .
