today (and yesterday obviously) i’m thinkin about Lenin’s qualifications for an ideal bureaucrat, as detailed in State and Revolution:
• democratically chosen from amongst their constituency (ACTUALLY democratically, not this gerrymandered redlined horseshit we have in the us);
• obligated by law and/or custom to represent the actual will and voice of their constituency; and,
• RECALLABLE at ANY TIME for ANY REASON.
so i’m thinkin about that and i’m thinkin about how the supreme court of the us is explicitly and intentionally the polar opposite. if you caint pull the fuckers out of their chairs, they ain’t workin for you.
