I went to Budapest on business (again) in December, but didn't take the photos off my phone until now. sigh

Budapest was just as lovely as I remembered, but it snowed and was below freezing during much of my visit. I still feel exotically lucky to have a job that takes me there!

The ivy is trying to take over the world again, so I spent some time in my rain-refreshed yard, trying to persuade it to restrain itself. (It didn't listen.) I also visited some other plants.

Employed people and people who own property are subsidized by US taxpayers, creating a sort of private socialism which is unequally distributed - and conservatives like that aspect of it!

"Instead, nine years later Congress laid the foundations of the social welfare system we enjoy today. They rejected Truman’s idea of universal private coverage in favor of a program controlled by employers while publicly funded through tax breaks. This plan gave corporations new leverage in negotiating with unions, handing the companies a publicly-financed benefit they could distribute at their discretion.

"No one stated their intention to create a social welfare program for white people, specifically white men, but they didn’t need to. By handing control to employers at a time when virtually every good paying job was reserved for white men the program silently accomplished that goal."

Adichie is a brilliant speaker and author, and I love her words. Especially this excerpt:

Adichie is a brilliant speaker and author, and I love her words. Especially this excerpt:

"Teach her that if you criticise X in women but do not criticise X in men, you do not have a problem with X, you have a problem with women. For X please insert words like anger, ambition, loudness, stubbornness, coldness, ruthlessness."
