Hence the blind spot. Because our elites are increasingly looking as clueless as late Qing court scribblers

Of course an issue there is key Democratic constituencies, not just Unions, had fundamentally no huge stake in the Liberal international order (but the people in charge did).

Well, that's partly because they're also the people who think that Huntington should be banned from political science courses blah blah blah Until it turns out that, well, parts of it end up becoming true

Now this assumption looks invalid and much of the US FP community seems to be in denial about it

And I keep pointing it out because the guiding assumption of US domestic politics as well as how foreigners dealt with the US was that there was a bipartisan consensus to limit protectionism and mercantilism to symbolic rhetoric rather than practice.

But what I think is more interesting is that at least in this area (economic dimension of geopolitics) the reactionary movement is being ignored or even encouraged by the opposition.

Yeah, that's what I've been saying for a while. Its the thing that binds "economic anxiety' with racism. You cannot have the retro status relationships of the 1950s (white heterosexual male on top) without the managerial industrial economics of that era.

Fellow hackers, I'm trying to test firmware stuff. After extraction with binwalk I got squashfs dir that is similar to linux env. Any ideas how to run it now? Create a virtual box ? Docker image ? Qemu ?

Other countries are cast as hot chicks where you “win” by getting an advantageous trade deal that puts them in a systematically disadvantaged zero-sum situation. Like a PUA “score” or something. This isn’t economics. It is performative cartoon masculinity.

The big dissonance is that they think a version of “fair” free trade is achievable with 19th century style bilateral protectionism via weaponized tariffs and barriers. This strikes me as a sad middle-aged incel trying to learn PUA tricks and larping bronze-Age-paleo bs.

The entire thing is kind of like America's version of Brexit, in the sense that its a slow-motion disaster that may have been overdetermined by structural trends but is also principally driven by bipartisan folly and self-interest
