This, Hochschild says, is the “deep story” shared by the people she meets. In the quest for the wealth and security promised by the American dream, they believe that some people have been permitted to cut the line in front of them. They take pride in the work that allowed them to rise as far as they have. But now, as they perceive their world slipping away, they resent the unfair assistance that they think liberal government gives to the less deserving — to people who, as one man complains in a particularly transparent moment, “lazed around days and partied at night.” They view those undeserving people not as economic competitors but rather as threats to a fragile sense of “cultural honor.” What matters most to the conservatives she meets, Hochschild suggests, is the embattled feeling of pride they take from the conviction that they themselves do not belong among the weak and needy. Indeed, Hochschild reports that nearly all of her subjects have benefitted in direct ways from “a major government service.” Many of them, she adds, are “ashamed and asked me to dissociate their identity from such an act.”

An instant Internet classic from MetaFilter user compartment

Folks. Folks, I have to tell you. It is almost zero hour. Nine a.m. The best hour, there is no better hour. Barack Obama wants zero hour to be so much later. Hillary Clinton, there will never be a zero hour, because Hillary Clinton founded Greenwich Mean Time.

Last night, preflight, Melania — and no one does this better than Melania — Melania packed my bags, as I said, preflight. I am going to be so, so high by then. No one will be bigger or higher than me at zero hour.

I miss the earth — which by the way is going to hell, so fast, but I am going to take this failing planet and turn it around; the only way we won't turn it around is if there is cheating, is if this planet is rigged — and I miss my wife, Melania, who packed my bags. Preflight! Preflight, people. You know, earth may be going to hell, but there are thousands of people right here today. A lot of people are saying it's lonely out in space. People are saying it's lonely and it's timeless, because Hillary Clinton wants to destroy zero hour. Sad.

Hillary Clinton wants you to raise your kids on Mars. Does that sound like any place to raise your kids? You tell me. Me, personally, a lot of people, a lot of people are saying Mars is cold as hell. Now how is global warming supposed to be a thing if Mars is so cold? The whole idea is preposterous; even if Crooked Hillary tried to raise your kids there — your kids, which by the way, what business does the government have raising your kids? — even if she tried, she couldn't, because there's no one there. Not one person. There is no one on Mars to raise your kids, but that's where Crooked Hillary is telling you to raise them.

Yesterday, the failing New York Times ran a hit piece saying that it wouldn't be long before touchdown brings me round again to find — and this is a pathetic accusation, just pathetic, from the worst kind of people — that I'm not the man I think I am at home. These ridiculous allegations by sleaze reporters. No, folks, I tell you, it is going to be a long, long, LONG, very long time, the biggest time, until I come around on a huge touchdown, the biggest. Extra point kicks, everything.

Oh no. No, no. Not a chance. I'm a rocket candidate, burning up a fuse, which will be made right here, in the USA. It's lonely up here, folks. Lonely. But you know, I don't mind.

The Leave campaign are recycling Nazi propaganda and directing it at "immigrants", pouring gasoline on the flames of British racism. They are doing so in a politically charged climate where mainstream conservative politicians have legitimized talk of "cutting immigration" as they run to the right to reduce the risk of losing their voters to UKIP, who are merely one dog-whistle away from being an explicitly racist party. They do so with the connivance of The Daily Mail, the Daily Express, and the other right-wing newspapers that peddle racism (because outrage captures eyeballs and eyeballs sell advertising)—whose every front page loaded with a hate-filled message about "immigrant scroungers". Britain First are an explicitly racist fringe party, and it now looks as if one of their followers may have conducted the first politically motivated murder of a sitting MP (other than in the context of Ireland) since Spencer Perceval in 1812.

I've been saying a while that when fascism comes to Britain it will be wearing a tweed jacket and a cheeky grin, holding a pint of beer in one hand and a noose in the other.

Peak Internet achieved.
I'm going to cut the preamble here and get straight to the chase: what the hell is going on in this GIF? How did it all happen? Did a troupe of butterflies flap their wings really hard on the other...

What we've done as technologists is leave a loaded gun lying around, in the hopes that no one will ever pick it up and use it.

We should not listen to people who promise to make Mars safe for human habitation, until we have seen them make Oakland safe for human habitation.
Idle Words > Talks > The Moral Economy of Tech. This is the text version of remarks I gave on June 26, 2016, at a panel on the Moral Economy of Tech at the SASE conference in Berkeley. The other panel participants were Kieran Healy, Stuart Russell and AnnaLee Saxenian.

The Neu Jorker is an hommage d'triomphe, a "'send up'" of New York's most stimulating and insufferable rag. The Neu Jorker is a digital-only download and free to the public.
