Decoding World History ver 12azx We can finish our discussion of evolution, world history and the mysterious blessings of its action: if we study the modern transition in the context of the eonic effect overall, we have to wonder … Continue reading Repost: A last parting gift… The emergence of ‘classical music’ near the modern divide: no eonic effect, no Mozart, no Beethoven?

The_Last_Revolution_Postcapitalist_ Futures_version_4_21_22 We posted today a criticism of Sanders’ neutered idea of ‘Our Revolution’, below. Our perspective can be taken as ‘up in the air’, but it can at least be a reminder to not speak of ‘revolution’ is you mean the opposite.
