Friends! It occurred to me the other day: I have a blog. I should post things on it. Things I’ve written! And so here we go.
“The United States doesn’t ever trade its concern for human rights for any other objective,” US Secretary of State John Kerry said the other day. I respond on Counterpunch.
Despite a bunch of lawsuits, Hollywood production companies continue to rely on unpaid labor — though as I note in The Baffler, they’ll claim it’s a mistake if you ask about it.
That last piece was originally to be published by Vice, a media platform for which I once worked. It was killed because it implicated too many #brands with which Vice may want to partner one day, and because Vice doesn’t exactly have a spotless labor record, but such is life. All that out of the way: I wrote a bunch of things for Vice that I never linked to here.
I love you all. Happy Wednesday.
