"As other historians have recently pointed out, when the Bastille was being stormed, the vertical class divisions inside the world’s major societies were not recapitulated as dramatic income differences between societies. The differences in living standards, say, between a French sans-culotte and Deccan farmer were relatively insignificant compared to the gulf that separated both from their ruling classes. By the end of Victoria's reign, however, the inequality of nations was as profound as the inequality of classes. Humanity had been irrevocably divided. And the famed "prisoners of starvation," whom the Internationale urges to arise, were as much modern inventions of the late Victorian world as electric lights, Maxim guns and "scientific” racism."

Quote
Neoliberalism, as Pierre Bourdieu eloquently warned us, is actually an authoritarian utopia that is nothing less than 'a program of the methodical destruction of the collectives,' from trade unions and mill towns to families and small nations.

REVPRO WAS AN AMAZING SHOW.
genuinely can’t stop my heart from racing a mile a minute rn. and i can’t express half the thoughts and emotions i felt, and still feel, after it all.
— if there was any doubt about it, they’ve been expelled: north west strong are my favourite britwres faction, and luke jacobs is underrated. the man is a unit. he’s intense. the man can bleed.
— speedball mike bailey has such an incredible precision and flow to his wrestling. he’s also so. damn. cute. my hands wouldn’t stop shaking, and all ability to speak like a normal human escaped me, but i got a picture with him. i look dumb. but he looks really sweet and cute, so it’s ok.
— mark davis’ moustache is something to behold. aussie open are absolutely capable of massacring a small army by themselves. that match was just spot, after spot, after sequence, after sequence. and fucking hell mark davis’ strength is genuinely still underestimated. he’s insane.
— pac is abso-fucking-lutely insane to watch and honestly just stare lovingly at in-person. he piledrived a man on the walkway to the ring, and proceeded to salaciously crawl, like a disgusting geordie bastard swamp creature, over connor mills’ body, back to the ring. and fuck me, i can’t get the sight out of my mind. (no genuinely, i can't stop thinking about this man and the absolute glory of him.)
my camera was shite for photos, the lighting and movement really isn’t ideal for my shitty little compact cam. but it’s really good for videos. so i have them. and i honestly might have a few ok photos on my phone. i have so many shite photos and videos to go through, and hopefully upload.

"The European empires, together with Japan and the United States, rapaciously exploited the opportunity to wrest new colonies, expropriate communal lands, and tap novel sources of plantation and mine labor. What seemed from a metropolitan perspective the nineteenth century’s final blaze of imperial glory was, from an Asian or African viewpoint, only the hideous light of a giant funeral pyre."

« The Metropolis-like phantasmagoria of Dubai’s super-skyscrapers or the Olympic megastructures in Beijing [...], the bright archipelagos of utopian luxury, map terminal, not anticipatory, stages in the history of late modernity. [They] stand as a testament to the resignation with which humanity squanders the borrowed time on which it now lives. [...T]hese gilded dreamworlds have no alarm clock; they are willful, narcissistic withdrawals from the tragedies overtaking the planet. The rich will simply hide out in their castles [...], desperately trying to consume all the good things of the Earth in their lifetimes. Indeed, by their very existence, the indoor ski slopes of Dubai and private bison herds of Ted Turner represent that ruse of reason by which the neoliberal order both acknowledges and dismisses the fact that the current trajectory of human existence is unsustainable. »

City of Quartz is just such a ridiculously great book about cities, about Los Angeles.  I kept seeing people quoting Mike Davis, and just thinking it was because of *waves hands* all of this, because so much of his work was about helping people understand the world around them, so why wouldn’t you quote Mike Davis right now?  It didn’t register to me that there’d be news like this out there.  
I hope he enjoyed his time here, and best wishes to that guy and his family for his final days.
