  1. “The Military-Industrial Complex Keeps Growing and Growing” because it is a vast, unacknowledged economic stimulus program, on which roughly half of “the” economy depends. In fact there are three economies, of which this is one. The others are (2) the financialized economy and (3) the “real” economy, which last possesses, at this point, no resources whatsoever, material or political.

    Love these link farms, but might you add a mention when an article can only be accessed by paying a subscription? The “Let’s Go, Brandon” article requires that you input your email address, follow a link, and then choose what paid subscription you want — with no opportunity to read the article first, and then decide whether you want to subscribe. So now I’m on somebody’s email list, for no good reason.
