Progressive activism extends the eviction ban and the infrastructure bill upholds the fossil fuel economy. It all feels like one step forward two steps back. www.charlesbursell.com

Jul 15, 2021

The Right is now lying about Cuba and “record” inflation. Also: The child tax credit rolls out (for some) and defenders of Capitalism just don’t get it. www.charlesbursell.com

 

 

Jul 14, 2021

As automation, AI and robotics handle more of our work, we must turn our attention to saving ourselves and the planet. www.charlesbursell.com

Family support, infrastructure, gun violence, global inequality… there’s nothing democracy can’t fix. That is, if we can fix democracy. www.charlesbursell.com
