Late Pollination

There is very little pollination real estate available out there now. It being past middle November and all. This dandelion flower, the only blooming flower visible, was crowded with two Margined Calligrapher flies and a Common Drone Fly the other day.

It seems as if capitalism no longer needs democracy. China’s ample proof of that. But then so is the history of capitalism: it certainly didn’t require democracy to begin with. Quite the opposite, in fact. We’ve been lucky to live during an interregnum, during which the countervailing power of labor forced democratization. But the neoliberal counterrevolution put paid to that. Labor is dead. The restoration of the power of oligarchic property is nearly complete.
