politics, slavery, capitalism
Beto O'Rourke is patting himself on the back for admitting that his ancestors owned slaves. This is how it works though. The way wealth moves around in capitalism is that is actually doesn't move around that much at all save from generation to generation. A rich person today once stole the work of unfree people. A successful company today once benefitted from unfree labor. Wealth concentrates into fewer and fewer hands. Marx and the other thinkers who pointed this out were right. Show me a wealthy person, I'll show you someone who benefitted from exploitation, if not outright slavery.
exercise, medical (+)
I had a very anxious weekend leading up to A Stressful Thing this morning. I hadn't really slept in days.
So when I got home from The Thing, I couldn't concentrate. I took a nap, woke up, and then effing _exercised_ for 45 minutes, and I felt so amazing afterward. Seems obvious I guess, but it's a first for me.
The past 6 months of physical therapy have, incidentally, taught me how to appreciate exercise, how to notice its effects on me. I'm excited to keep progressing.
