today is the one year anniversary of the Lebanese Revolution. there is still so much work to do, and Lebanon and everyone living there are still under threat from multiple fronts, so I am exhausted and always anxious. but watching people across classes, sects, and all of society march together for the first time against the ruling parties and families, some of which are 400 years old, fills me with a kind of hope I didn't even know existed ✊🏼🇱🇧 ثورة حتى النصر

despite flying in identical weather and lighting conditions, the american pilots fly with their visors up while the "enemy" pilots fly with their visors down. we can see the eyes of the american pilots, which tells us they are human like us, but we cannot see the eyes of the "enemy", which tells us their humanity is doubtful. it's always easier to kill faceless monsters.

a more nuanced take: as a blunt instrument of the spread of neoliberalism google can only understand buildings as places of commerce and the people who frequent to the buildings as consumers. the neoliberal consumer exercises agency primarily through commercial decisions and communicating such decisions to other consumers. "voting with your dollars" takes the place of political action and "leaving reviews" takes the place of accountability and political organization.
