I'm not a fan of the term late stage capitalism. I have no confidence this is late stage. I mean a lot of socialist in 1917 likely thought they were seeing the end of capitalism across Europe. Also I think the idea of history having a pattern instead of chaos is perhaps too optimistic for me.
An instance for history jokes and fun times (hopefully). Figuring out how to open it up to others, site under construction like the Grand Army in 1811 ;)
