Scoop from ⁦@shearm⁩: After Hurricane Maria, Trump raised the possibility of “divesting” or “selling” Puerto Rico as it struggled to recover, according to a former acting cabinet secretary. https://t.co/Bxd57hGiWf

This is what is means to be a colony https://t.co/M9XQ6R48vD

Mexico’s Jalisco cartel builds an 'ecosystem' of crime across the country. Worrying new story by @ksieff. https://t.co/StxRozR8DI

The primary driving force behind Arizona progressive organizing (a national model) has been a population of people w everything on the line who still cannot vote & who remain vulnerable in ways citizens can’t fathom. Read this, by ⁦@jennymedina⁩: https://t.co/eP2DCXZ3Mz

Quoted @thomaschattwill

This is why, for example, Hannah Arendt could say, in effect, that we shouldn’t cancel Heidegger’s philosophy.

Or Kant for his vile anti-blackness. Yet Arendt also understood the strategic necessity of identity claims: “If one is attacked as a Jew, one must defend oneself as a Jew. Not as a German, not as a world-citizen, not as an upholder of the Rights of Man.” https://t.co/z5giOnlsRx

Heidegger’s commitment to Nazi ideology was deeply bound up in his ideas. It was not some separable set of identitarian claims. To engage with his thinking—which is absolutely worth doing—is necessarily to reckon with the consequences of that fact. https://t.co/rhDNFlA6Td

America's struggles may come to mark a historic inflection point: the moment the world’s preeminent superpower had to relinquish a certain vision of its own primacy as other countries — especially some rising powers in Asia — led the way. https://t.co/4DnUnZnhkD

Islamists & conservative nationalists have long been eager to reverse Ataturk's decision and it often feels like only a matter of time till they do. As with celebrity obituaries, foreign correspondents may already have their stories drafted in anticipation https://t.co/5MN0uaieax

Few things stoke my personal secularism more than seeing a humanist admiration of beautiful old buildings get swept aside by bickering devotees. https://t.co/gRQBK6OyKL

Many of the people actually “cancelled” are those long denied a fair hearing of their ideas to begin w/: Palestinian human rights advocates Abolitionists Anticapitalists Anti-imperialists Not spicy “contrarians” who want to play devils advocate w/ your basic rights in the NYT

BREAKING: Turkey is reverting the iconic Hagia Sophia to a mosque after 85 years as a museum, from @kfahim https://t.co/2dd0rSkHt0

Be still my heart, this piece by @warghetti for Baffler on #Lebanon's literal shit is utterly captivating (& tragic & hilarious) 🇱🇧💩 "To say that we’re drowning in our shit—the shit we all made together—is no longer a figure of speech in Lebanon today" https://t.co/yC71xmViyI

It took several geopolitical shocks for the vision of the “American” century to take hold, including the bloodiest war in human history. The pandemic may be another epochal jolt to the system, reshaping how we think about the course of global affairs. https://t.co/4DnUnZnhkD

This is how civilization ends, not with a bang, not with a whimper, but with an endless cycle of open letters circulated into the void. https://t.co/2JblW8yisI

Quoted @paragkhanna

To be clear, it is already an Asian century, not a Chinese one. The shift toward global multipolarity has long been underway; now the shift *within* Asia towards multipolarity must be arbitrated. The backlash against China is part of that story. #TheFutureIsAsian https://t.co/33yT3105I0

Welcome Parag's reframing here https://t.co/8IumfuAIs7

Erdogan hopes that Hagia Sophia as a mosque will rally his base -I say no. He's been popular because he's delivered economic growth. Short of Turkey's economy bouncing back, nothing will help build his base, but the conversion's damage to Turkey's brand will be irreversible

In hindsight, it's definitely not more than two orders of avocado toast plus tax and tip.

This is a very good deal for a whole year of digital access to the @washingtonpost. Just $29! That's, if you're lucky, three orders of avocado toast. Subscribe! https://t.co/knSr9sEkNy
