Northern Summer on Titan.
Image Credit: Cassini Imaging Team, SSI, JPL, ESA, NASA
Explanation: While yesterday's solstice brought summer to planet Earth's northern hemisphere, a northern summer solstice arrived for ringed planet Saturn nearly a month ago on May 24. Following the Saturnian seasons, its large moon Titan was captured in this Cassini spacecraft image from June 9. The near-infrared view finds bright methane clouds drifting through Titan's northern summer skies as seen from a distance of about 507,000 kilometers. Below Titan's clouds, dark hydrocarbon lakes sprawl near the large moon's now illuminated north pole.

Why do so many of us seem to be able to fall into dehumanizing each other, to such a degree that we feel justified doing horrible things with impunity? How do horrifically destructive social movements emerge that eventually result in widespread cruelty? It is because the way our brain processes abstractions is different than the way it works with things we are intimately bonded to, such as out body or close family members. Whenever we use "social thinking" or any layer of abstraction in our thinking we risk easily losing our humanity. We can, and do fall victim to reducing people to abstractions, which we can then treat then as, and this can lead to horrible results. Here's some additional detail from Crash Course.

Are You Ready? The Sun is Welcoming the Eclipse with a Burst of Renewed Activity

AS THE ECLIPSE NEARS, SOLAR ACTIVITY INCREASES: Only a few weeks ago, it seemed that the sun would be quiet and featureless when the Moon eclipsed it on Aug. 21st. Solar Minimum was in full swing. This weekend, however, the sun is welcoming the eclipse with a burst of renewed activity.

There is a huge prominence on the sun's eastern limb.
If you are in the total eclipse path set your clock to greet this awesome spectacle on Monday.

In addition, a remarkably-long sunspot group is sprawling across the solar disk. AR2671 stretches 140,000 miles from end to end, almost twice as wide as the planet Jupiter. Amateur astronomers watching the eclipse through safe solar telescopes will have no trouble seeing the rugged edge of the Moon cut across this impressive sunspot, eclipsing one dark core after another.

If we're really lucky, the sunspot will explode. AR2671 has a 'beta-gamma' magnetic field that harbors energy for M-class solar flares.

Perseids over the Pyrénées

Image Credit & Copyright: Jean-Francois Graffand

Explanation: This mountain and night skyscape stretches across the French Pyrenees National Park on August 12, near the peak of the annual Perseid meteor shower. The multi-exposure panoramic view was composed from the Col d'Aubisque, a mountain pass, about an hour before the bright gibbous moon rose. Centered is a misty valley and lights from the region's Gourette ski station toward the south. Taken over the following hour, frames capturing some of the night's long bright perseid meteors were aligned against the backdrop of stars and Milky Way.

The Trump presidency that we fought for, and won, is over. - Steve Bannon

Bannon said this because he got kicked out. But it could be truer than he knows.

First, Trump's Manufacturing Jobs Initiative and Strategic and Policy Forum collapsed as leaders of big companies got scared of being associated with him.

It began last Saturday when the head of the drug company Merck left, saying:

As CEO of Merck and as a matter of personal conscience, I feel a responsibility to take a stand against intolerance and extremism.

Trump blasted him with a tweet. By Tuesday, leaders from Intel, Under Armour, the Alliance for American Manufacturing, the AFL-CIO, 3M and Campbell Soup Company had resigned. Trump tweeted:

For every CEO that drops out of the Manufacturing Council, I have many to take their place. Grandstanders should not have gone on. JOBS!

But Tuesday morning he switched gears again on the Charlottesville neo-Nazi rally, declaring a moral equivalence between both sides and garnering instant praise from KKK leader David Duke:

Thank you President Trump for your honesty & courage to tell the truth about Charlottesville [...]

So, the whole Strategic and Policy Forum had a phone conference and decided to jump off Trump's sinking ship. The head of General Motors explained why:

General Motors is about unity and inclusion and so am I. Recent events, particularly those in Charlottesville, Virginia, and its aftermath, require that we come together as a country and reinforce values and ideals that unite us — tolerance, inclusion and diversity – and speak against those which divide us – racism, bigotry and any politics based on ethnicity.

The Manufacturing Jobs Initiative also collapsed, and Trump hastily disbanded both groups later that day.

Republicans in Congress continued standing like deer caught in the headlights of an oncoming car. Behind the scenes they must surely be making plans. Senator Bob Corker, a Republican from Tennessee, made the news by admitting the obvious:

I do think there need to be some radical changes. The president has not yet been able to demonstrate the stability nor some of the competence that he needs to demonstrate in order to be successful.

On Friday, the President's Committee on Arts and the Humanities all quit. In the first paragraph of their resignation letter, the first letter of each word spells RESIST. One of the member, Kal Penn, said this in an interview:

It became clear that the government became inoperative under this particular presidency. A lot of the work and the agencies have been frozen. There’s a big waste of taxpayer dollars. We had hope, but the president made comments that quite literally were in support of the domestic terrorists.

It’s one thing to say you want to serve the programs you were appointed to serve, regardless of politics, but after a certain point . . . we just don’t want our names attached to this in any way.

On Friday, the billionaire Carl Icahn quit serving as Trump's special advisor - apparently because Democrats were pointing out his conflicts of interest.

So the Trump team has been unraveling rapidly. Meanwhile, Trump's advisor Steve Bannon, who knew he was about to be fired, gave a fascinating interview in which he undercut a lot of Trump's recent moves. Notably:

There’s no military solution [to North Korea’s nuclear threats], forget it. Until somebody solves the part of the equation that shows me that ten million people in Seoul don’t die in the first 30 minutes from conventional weapons, I don’t know what you’re talking about, there’s no military solution here, they got us.

and

Ethno-nationalism—it's losers. It's a fringe element. I think the media plays it up too much, and we gotta help crush it, you know, uh, help crush it more. These guys are a collection of clowns.

He was fired on Friday.

A lot of people thought Steve Bannon was behind Trump's move to appeal to "ethno-nationalists" (also known as racists) like the ones who rallied in Charlottesville. It would be very interesting if that's not true. I don't really understand Bannon; perhaps he's just an "economic nationalist" as he seems to claim in the recent interview. If so, it makes this question all the more pressing: why did Trump shoot himself in the foot by not coming out and forcefully condemning neo-Nazis and the KKK?

One possibility is that he's a racist... but that doesn't fully explain it, because a simple sense of political survival is enough to keep most racist politicians in the US in line these days. They happily pass laws designed to make harder for black people to vote, etcetera, but still they have the sense to condemn the KKK when it's called for, since nowadays that's required if you're going win elections or even get anything done.

One possibility is that Trump is just stupid, but that doesn't explain it either.

One possibility is that Trump can't stand being forced to do anything, so after he knuckled under and dutifully read a statement against racism from a teleprompter on Monday, he became angry and couldn't resist doubling down on his original position on Tuesday.

This seems more plausible, but it doesn't answer why he had that position in the first place. Since when does not condemning neo-Nazis and the KKK seem like a good idea?

Here's one theory: Trump feels he's going to be pushed out of the presidency, and he wants some angry crowds with weapons to stick up for him when that day comes.

If that seems implausible, remember how he spoke at a rally of motorcycle gangs last year:

https://www.washingtonpost.com/local/dc-politics/donald-trump-to-speak-at-rolling-thunder-rally/

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/worldviews/wp/2016/06/01/how-the-loyal-support-of-biker-gangs-unites-trump-and-putin/

It would be good to discuss this in a rational polite way, but that's not easy. I find that moderating any discussion of Trump is a full-time job, and unpleasant too. So, as usual for posts on this subject, I won't enable comments. Too bad - people need to think about what is going on as events heat up. If you want to reshare this and manage your own discussion, please do.
