By God, that's competitive authoritarianism's music!

You think “all politicians are corrupt” cynicism makes you wise, but it just makes you a mark. Your belief is false—some politicians are very corrupt, some modestly corrupt, some squeaky clean—and your false belief leads you to accept big corruption as normal when you shouldn’t.

I think Trump fulfills their desire to return to the Cold War, when an unapologetically "strong" America was tough on "dangerous commies," like the DPRK, but also any "weak-kneed liberals" at home.

Very thoughtful analysis of how autocrats have to deal with popular morality in here. And hard research to do on China.

I was not a fan of the WeChat ban (though I deleted WeChat from my own phone and use it on a burner). But this really smart column is making me think again. A lifeline can also be a noose.

As morally bankrupt as certain preferences may be, that isn't the same as irrational, un-strategic, or policy-unrelated. I guess what I'm really trying to express is that I feel the line between affective and policy polarization is very very blurry.

Yes. I might even go further and say that it would make sense for democrats to oppose any rare good trump policy in hopes of throwing him out of office, which would be helpful to getting better policies overall. Policies don't exist in isolation from each other.

Yeah, a Trump-supported single payer system would never be the same as one done by the democrats, even if the policy looked exactly the same on paper.

That's an impressive ramp walk. Will be hard for Trump to compete...

These wars have been "horrifically catastrophic, horrifically damaging in ways that I don’t think that most people in the United States, in many ways myself included, have grappled with or reckoned with in even the slightest terms” -

The extent to which we face equity-efficiency tradeoffs is really overstated. A lot of the time we're sacrificing efficiency to maintain inequality

The key thing is that they keep trying to make you think of the word black.
