Also, about the income inequality post, I love how The Atlantic (the original source of both the map and the quote) states “We’re on par with some of the world’s most troubled countries”. Well, perhaps you could acknowledge that, if you are on par with such countries it might as well mean that you are one of the most troubled countries. But I guess it’s better for collective American morale to point that Latin America is one of those troubled regions, while the US, even though it shares every index that makes Latin America troubled, is exceptional.
For the past decade and a half I have been making all my content available for free (and never behind a paywall) as an ongoing practice of ephemeral publishing. This site is no exception. If you wish to help offset my labor costs, you can donate on Paypal or you can subscribe to Patreon where I will not be putting my posts behind a lock but you'd be helping me continue making this work available for everyone. Thank you. Follow me on Twitter for new post updates.
