  • I’m worried black voters will not turn out in the needed numbers if they interpret skipping Kamala as the presumptive nominee to be a betrayal. I’m very concerned about a damned if you do, damned if you don’t scenario.

    Biden has done a good job as President. I don’t love him as the nominee, but I’m afraid the chaos of him stepping down is going to create a no win scenario. Some folks think he is the no win scenario. If it’s truly impossible for us to put forward a candidate who can win, that’s not a problem we can pin on the other side - we did that to ourselves. And at the worst possible time for it.

  • What do you mean by “if it’s for real?” It’s a real philosophy that someone really thought of, obviously. Has anyone experimented with it? Not that I’ve ever heard of. Would it be a good idea? Sounds pretty awful to me. It would stifle small business, independent learning, building new things on top of old ideas, and would create massive stagnation as no one could afford to do anything new without reinventing everything that is needed as a basis for the new thing.

    Additionally I’m trying to imagine how it would even be possible today and I think you’d need incredibly complex (slow, fragile) mechanisms to make it work.
