My primary schools official song (1)
The Unicorn stood, like a king in a dream,
On the bank of a dark Senegambian stream;
And flaming flamingoes flew over his head,
As the African sun rose in purple and red.
He followed the paths where the jungle beasts go,
And he walked with a step that was stately and slow;
But he threw not a shadow and made not a sound,
And his foot was as light as the wind on the ground.
“Crystals don’t actually do anything,” I mutter now that you’re balancing a large uncut chunk of quartz on your head and two hematite pyramids in your outstretched hands standing naked on my basement altar to Baphomet. “Also Baphomet is fake,” as Baphomet plays Pokemon in the attic, which sadly you can’t hear.

re: jacobin article, labor power + renter power
this point about what pension money does behind your back hit me in particular:
> Paradoxically, union workers’ earnings are helping to finance corporate landlords. A 2015 review of annual pension reports found that more than thirty local and state public pensions invested $3.2 billion in the single-family foreclosure to rental portfolios of Blackstone Real Estate LP.
> One teacher close to retirement at New York City’s P.S. 3 put it this way: “My pension made my apartment unaffordable” — the teacher’s pension fund had invested in her displacement through its financing of private equity–backed rental portfolios held by Urban America. In a perverse twist, the pension fund’s fiduciary mandate to secure workers’ retirements was helping to push out some of the very same workers ready to retire.
be it noted that capital will never defeat capital, that capital cannot truly defend you from capital.
Joe wrote an Edgar Rice Burroughs story where Joe travels to a strange alien land and the only thing the savage locals understand is a show of force, which he wisely provides, and which they thank him for, and then they make him their leader. #RIPCornPop
I don’t read politicians’ autobiographies and this may be a mistake. Hillary put the stuff about how she had literal African-American house slaves in her autobiography. Joe Biden put a tall tale about how he won the heart of a made-up gangster named Corn Pop by assaulting him with a metal chain in his autobiography. They’re *proud* of their racism and they put it right in books which are cleared by editors. White people are wild.
