Eschaton. Just spitballing here, but what if there’s so much capital sloshing about that Uber’s VCs backed it as a form of social engineering: To destroy public transportation, increase traffic, degrade employment law, pioneer an immiserated labor force of gigsters, and so forth.

LRB. Review of the collected writings of Mark Fisher, author of . Even if Fisher didn’t invent “Mighty woke of you” (drumlin woodchuckles) he surely would have, given the appropriate conjuncture.
Guardian. College administrator territory! Of course, it’s not like being an adjunct and a shelf-stocker are in any way similar….
Areo. “We”? And if you’re looking for an explanation of the various *DSs ( ____ Derangement Syndromes) that we seem to be accumulating, they don’t fit the criteria given for cult in the article. Interesting nonetheless.
