I love the Internet. In amongst the rubbish there are gems.


China's Growth Prospects  @rasmun 06/05/22 Author: Adam Tooze.

"The shift in Western discourse on China over the last five years has been dramatic. Trade wars, tech wars, COVID, Xi Jinping's crackdowns, the real estate bubble, Omicron and now Putin's war have all contributed." #economics #china #gdp

Yes, it looks like the Germans have swapped the tanks for light armoured vehicles in return for continued gas supplies. The EU does approve all external trade so this has the EU stamp of approval.


Germany u-turns on tank delivery  @rasmun 27/04/22

Germany has u-turned on its decision to directly militarily support Ukraine, as Russia's foreign minister warned it could lead to World War Three. #russia #Ukraine #germany

Have you noticed that Al Jazeera never criticises Islam?


Marxism and Identity Politics  @rasmun 23/04/22

Analysis of ID Politics: The greater the dispossession of the racial and gendered Other, the higher the pile of scraps under the table of the capitalist class. Such a strategy effectively destroys all grounds for mass, anti-capitalist solidarity and resistance. #idpo

The Mysteries of British History  @rasmun 22/04/22

British historians like to portray the Anglo-Saxons as primitives who lived in wooden huts. According to the myth these primitives were extremely lucky because the Normans came and within 100-200 years had built a church or cathedral in every town and village. #norman #saxon #uk

Yes, the @BBC is a mess. Either it is a Public service broadcaster or not.. BBC management and @DCMS have not decided.


John Rasmun @rasmun
Replying to: @gillyw 21/04/22
But who teaches them how they should behave? The @BBC in particular should avoid teaching us the views of its management. #idpolitics

Is it time for Boris to resign?  @rasmun 20/04/22

How important were the parties? Just workmates who had been together all day having a cake in the office and having drinks at meetings or wild parties to celebrate. #borisjohnson

This will be the big story of the next decade. If the dollar falls then US power will shrink.

Twitters chickens come home to roost  @rasmun 16/04/22

Excellent review of the corrupt state of social media: "Media figures everywhere are openly complaining that they dislike the Musk move because they're terrified he will censor people less." #twitter #socialmedia #elonmusk #censorship

Partygate raises the important point that it is not partygate by itself that was crucial, it is the general mismanagement


Myanmar on My Mind  @rasmun 06/04/22

The dominant colors of each place seemed to be gold and an earthy reddish-brown, warm and radiant beneath untainted blue skies. 'Myanmar is even more beautiful than its neighbors,' my father declared. 'It has this quality of light you don't really find in Thailand.' #myanmar #burma

Select economists on Ukraine crisis  @rasmun 05/04/22

If President Biden and European leaders had declared, in advance, in public, and in detail, the harsh and pathbreaking sanctions now imposed on Russia, Putin might have reconsidered. #Ukraine #Russia #sanctions
