Class War Battlefield Podcast Episode 2023.AR.00
Article Reaction (Before I Called these That)
Test 00, Part 1 to the Article, Designing A Better Regulatory State
I have been trying to find the right time to begin posting these; unfortunately, I never could. Recorded during the first months in 2023, this was meant to be a one-off episode – series. But soon, after completing this two parter I found another article to read, which upon finishing it was supposed to be the last. . . .you see where this is going. After the third article read I readjusted my thinking and committed to producing these regularly, which I immediately failed on – till this year. I am publishing it now, nearly a year after I recorded it because I had to scrap three episodes I would have been releasing now (I didn’t like their content or structure). That all said, the title gives away the purpose and structure of the episode. I read an article titled “Designing a better regulatory state” and in real time give responses to what is written. Interesting to me is this article is written by a neocon (slash) libertarian, neither typically support regulation of any kind, as they believe this is an unholy infringement on corporate rights (as human-stand-ins) and the ability for the “market” to self-regulate itself. Admittedly the writing in this article is superb, especially in the earliest moments; its superbness enables me to present some much needed comments on the words used to describe (in opaque terms) the reality talked about and eluded to. Ultimately this entire exercise proved the viability of this series; be prepared for this commentary, it is everything my episodes usually are – and much much more. Enjoy.

Article Reaction (Before I Called these That)
Test 00, Part 2 to the Article, Designing A Better Regulatory State
Welcome to the second part to this experimental episode, turned series. My intention, originally was to compress the entire article into one episode; but I realized that was unrealistic. My comments on the first part far exceeded my expectations, so here is Part 2. This portion starts with me reading the section, why we need a regulatory state. From this section I touch on a theme that underpins much of the work I do on this podcast, the theme is redemption. Conservatives, for the most part, have a hard time humbling themselves to the idea that they were wrong (paging Dr. Driftglass to the O.R for your award for Best Neurosurgeon) and that in their acknowledgement, they then must move quickly along the path to redemption; this requires a bit of humility and reconsideration of their previous actions, thoughts and statements. This article, turns out to be thematically structured for redemption. The author, though sometimes he seems to try to avert this, constantly castes off previous conservative thoughts on deregulation, most notably those describing any economic regulation as negative and harmful to the social dynamics economic institutions (corporations) utilize and engage with, to create the necessary profit their existence relies on to affirm their purpose for operating in a given society or community (not market for those are parasitic creations by those who see nothing beyond them but their usefulness in achieving the aims described previously, namely, profit). Okay, so I’m not a Capitalist, but I understand the importance of the economic institutions in maintaining social stability, hence why I never call for them to be torn down wholesale without a plan for replacing the. But I digress. Hope you enjoy this second part.
