Quick Note: Today’s Round Up

Today I delved deeper into the link between economy, capitalism and digital platforms considering how individuals or rather the differences between individuals are manifested upon digital platforms. I read further into Milanovic's paper on global inequality - in order to ground me in a social policy framework and vantage point. This is because I awoke [...]

Response to – B.Milanovic (2011) ‘Global Inequality: From Class to Location, from Proletarians to Migrants’

This is a short paper of twenty-one pages, so in the interest of fairness and transparency it should be noted that most papers raise more questions than they answer. So my response in large part is questioning and relating this paper to other fields of inquiry or practice, but this response is more experimental exercise [...]

Quick Note: Today’s roundup

So today's readings have taken me from reading through 2011 working paper titled 'Global Inequality: from Class to Location, from Proletarians to Migrants' by Branko Milanovic (2011).

What of his life? What then? Where should he hide? Why? Whose [...]

Where birth-right is the only thing that is certain and right. No more mobility. No more integrating. No trust. No hope. In short the world [...]

Oh sickening spirit.. Leave me.. I beseech thee.

I see a spirit so independent and true,Fighting within fortunes so similar A life path through the challenging bush, But dissimilar too, the essence of our awkward roots, a legacy that we inhabit, yet to given To be seen to take fruit. This wandering mind, anguishing in hells your imagination could barely reside in, Your [...]

An ode to a lost love

I cannot seem to escape thee Your majesty compels me My root fixated in being with you, Fibre-optic news of your being blowing upon every breeze, I remain forever frozen unsure of what to do, Head down, fangs snarled, head pumping, running for eternal coverings, picky as I sit confused in quagmires, unwilling to accept [...]
