Thriving in Dystopia

Ep29: When Celebration Goes Bad, Part I: Winner Takes It All

November 30, 2020

Dave and Bob get together for a daytime recorded Thriving for the first time in months. After sharing gratitude, Bob goes off on corporate Democrats and their insipid actions and beliefs.  The Crew dives into the topic of zero-sum celebrations, which are celebrating wins and celebrating the loses of others.  They discuss how they see these ideas being socialized into children when the “win at any costs” of Michael Jordan or Tom Brady is worshiped.  They tell the story of Star Fox, a moment in their video game history that proved pivotal in their lives.

Bob mentioned Cecilia Munoz, a member of Biden’s transition team, who defended Obama Era family separations: https://www.pbs.org/wgbh/frontline/article/cecilia-munoz-even-broken-laws-have-to-be-enforced/ 

 

Did you Know?

That in Congressional swing districts in 2020, 6 of the House Dems who lost ranked top 22 most conservative Dems in the House.  On the other hand, 9 of the 11 progressives in these districts won. Progressives and progressive ideas can win in Centrist districts.  More more see this: https://www.politico.com/f/?id=00000175-b4b4-dc7f-a3fd-bdf660490000
