Forget About ‘Elysium’

“Trailers for ‘Elysium’ were like catnip for the left-leaning viewer: a near future where the masses, stranded in crumbling cities, outfit Matt Damon with a robot suit and send him to fight the bourgeoisie, who have Galted off the planet to Space Station Elysium, taking their shrubbery, Spanish-style mansions and cancer cures with them,” Gavin Mueller writes at Jacobin.

Why Republicans Are Disciplined and Democrats Aren’t

When GOP leaders tell rank-and-file Republicans to call Obamacare’s cost controls “death panels,” or to say the rich are “job creators,” or the poor are “takers rather than makers,” they all repeat the same words.
