@prehensile The story provides a fun lesson in how politics works:

* Part of Reagan's job with GE was hosting a television program, General Electric Theater.

* General Electric Theater was produced by a company called MCA Inc.

* MCA's main business was as a talent agency. Reagan's agent, Lew Wasserman, worked at MCA (and eventually became its president).

* The union that represents TV and movie actors, the Screen Actors Guild (SAG), had a provision in its standard contract that said talent agencies could not also produce TV shows. The reason was that it's an obvious conflict of interest; if you're an actor, your agent is supposed to fight with the producers of whatever project you're working on to look out for your interests. And how could they do that if they were the producers themselves?

* In 1947, Wasserman helps Reagan launch a campaign to become the president of the Screen Actors Guild. Reagan wins.

* In 1952, with Reagan as president, the Screen Actors Guild gives MCA (and *only* MCA) a "blanket waiver" on the contract provision barring talent agencies from producing TV. This makes them the only talent agency in Hollywood that can get into production as well. And since they'll be negotiating with themselves for talent, they'll always be able to do it cheaper than anyone else.

* In 1953, MCA sells a new show, General Electric Theater, to CBS. Its original format does not include a host.

* In 1954, GE hires Reagan to be its national spokesman, part of which involves hosting General Electric Theater. His compensation package includes the sweet house you mention.

* By 1962, MCA is the producer of more than 60% of all television programming.

A lot about ronald reagan made more sense to me when I found out that he spent the 25 years before his election living in a promotional "house of the future" built specifically for him by General Electric

I bet there's a guy at the pickle factory that comes in every morning and says, "Rise and Brine, everyone!" and all his coworkers hate him.

it can be downloaded for free from the anarchist library, which is where i got it - there are some minor typos and tables/figures are missing but tbh it didn't impact the reading of it greatly

theanarchistlibrary.org/librar

tbh I'll probably buy a hard copy and read it again at some stage, for now this is a good introduction to it

finally finished debt: the first 5000 years by david graeber, had to take a long break in the middle but once i got going again i flew through it

it's very readable and i would recommend it to anyone with an interest in politics, economics or social philosophy

given the density of it, there's not much than can be simply quoted out of context but this one line jumped right off the page:

"Any system that reduces the world to numbers can only be held in place by weapons"
