    1. Piketty’s account of the past 40 years is less a story of capital being unleashed (as most histories of neoliberalism have it) than of progressive ideologies running out of steam. The failure of communism played a crucial role in this, producing a new fatalism about the capacity of politics to deliver equality. Globalisation eroded national borders, while “hypercapitalism” delivered concentrations of wealth not witnessed since 1914. In the context of post-socialist ideological cynicism

    1. (He was also hit by a car when he was eight and stabbed by a stranger in a bar fight while out with the actor Vince Vaughn in 2001. “I came close to death,” he says, casually reflecting on the latter incident. “That was probably the closest I've been, besides being hit by a bus and a car.”)

    1. 3,000 people have passed away as a result of the infection.

      "pass away" is a euphemism usually reserved for obituary pages. Victims of a virulent virus do not "pass away." They die.

    1. Death is like painting rather than like sculpture, because it’s seen from only one side. Monochrome—like the mausoleum-gray former Berlin Wall, which kids in West Berlin glamorized with graffiti. What I’m trying to do here.
    1. scarlet fever

      Scarlet fever is a disease caused by a streptococcus infection, most common among children and young adults. Until the discovery of penicillin in the early 20th Century, it was frequently fatal. Also compare the 1831 edition, in which Elizabeth's condition is more "severe."

    1. This makes me think shrines to birth sites should also be possible, and would also mark the boundary between life and death.

    1. “Because the bully had no prior record of bullying, and even though there were so many different days and incidents of physical assault, it was treated as a one-time offense, and for a one-time offense you just get a short talk and a call home,”

      In order for suspension and expulsion, there must be multiple offense. In this case, there are witnesses and a confession, but that is not enough. Even though there were many different days and incidents of physical assault this is considered a one-time offense? A short talk and a phone call home is the consequences of a death threat and physical assault? Where is the importance of bullying would not be tolerated? Where is the importance of ensuring the victim's safety? This is why this whole system fail to tackle on the issue of bullying. The limit of what the school can do is unjust. How is that resolved? The victim and their family would still feel unsafe, fear, and paranoia.

    2. “I really assumed that because there was a death threat, that it would be taken seriously.” — Amy Simpson, mother

      I would assumed that everyone who reads this will feel some sort of way regarding threats and how serious it is. Amy Simpson, a mother of the bullied victim, had also ASSUMED threats to her child would be taken seriously. To read on that it wasn't makes me feel the indignation for Amy. As a mother myself, I would also assumed that serious actions would be taken upon the offender who physically, emotionally, and mentally abused my child. In most cases, parents of victims feel their cases is unresolved and still fear for their child safety. Why in this case was it not taken seriously when all lines are crossed topping it with the threats? Why?

    3. The physical assault and the death threats were two different felonies, but Amy Simpson said the officer told her they were missing one felony that would allow them to press charges.

      Threats are made. I think regardless they should have taken the matter more serious.The juvenile detention center and Slate Canyon youth center regulates the three-felony rule in order to press charges on the offense. Why is two different felonies not enough for pressing charges? Does it have to get worse then a physical assault and death threats?

    4. “He was genuinely afraid that the bully was serious and that it could happen,”

      Amy Simpson shared that her son is genuinely scared of the threats. A child who has already dealt with physical assault from his bully and now scared for his life. I can't even imagine the emotions the parent are going through seeing and hearing the fear from their child. As a mother, I would feel anger, sadness, fear, and even more eager to find justice for the fraction of what my child endured. As parents, we all have that defensive nature to protect our children.

    1. Tarrant wrote that while traveling through France, Portugal and Spain he was horrified by the killing of Ebba Åkerlund, an 11-year-old girl, when an Uzbek man, Rakhmat Akilov, rammed his truck into a group of pedestrians in Stockholm in April 2017. Two of the rifles used in the Christchurch shooting had references to Åkerlund scrawled on them, among other messages.

      I wonder how Ebba Åkerlund would have reacted to this; I don't think she would have wanted somebody to commit mass murder.
