Why Andrew Yang's Universal Basic Income Proposal Has Been Gaining Ground

Why Andrew Yang's Universal Basic Income Proposal Has Been Gaining Ground

Earlier this month, Andrew Yang officially qualified for the upcoming Democratic presidential debate, making him the only candidate so far on stage without a background in politics. Yang is a former tech executive and founder of Venture for America, a sort of Teach for America that sends recent graduates to work for start-ups in "struggling cities," as puts it, such as Detroit, Cleveland, and New Orleans. That probably best sums up Yang's very Silicon Valley approach to governing: Structural problems can be innovated away with entrepreneurial gumption. The central plank of his campaign is...

Calling Healthcare Workers War “Heroes” Sets Them Up to Be Sacrificed

Calling Healthcare Workers War “Heroes” Sets Them Up to Be Sacrificed

This week, a flight of eight military jets—handsome and sleek, with bright-red tails—flew over the shuttered Las Vegas strip, so close to the city the roar could be heard from the ground, their dark bellies close to the glassy spires of empty hotels. Flying in tight formation from Nellis Air Force Base, they issued plumes of cloud into the desert air, uniform trails that dissipated into the big, bright, cumulus-dappled sky over the empty streets. It was a thank you from the United States military, the U.S. Air Force Demonstration Squadron, “to show appreciation and support for the...

No One Had a Style Evolution Quite Like Beastie Boys

No One Had a Style Evolution Quite Like Beastie Boys

It has been a big month for throwback style. GQ has spent documenting of The Last Dance, ESPN's ode to Michael Jordan and the late-1990s Chicago Bulls. However, there is another recently released documentary that is just as packed with excellent fits and next-level style: the Spike Jonze-directed Beastie Boys Story. That group was best known for its experimental blending of hip-hop, hardcore punk, and everything in between. But the film shows that their sense of style was much like their music—a hodgepodge of motifs from various cultures and scenes. It's the type of thing that doesn't make...

Jared Kushner Is the “De Facto President of the United States” Says Former White House Official

Jared Kushner Is the “De Facto President of the United States” Says Former White House Official

Is Rishi Sunak Britain’s First Hypebeast Prime Minister?

Is Rishi Sunak Britain’s First Hypebeast Prime Minister?

Rishi Sunak, the 42-year-old British politician, officially stepped into the role of British prime minister on Tuesday, becoming England’s third leader in seven weeks and its first prime minister of color ever. The former chancellor of the Conservative party has not spoken much about policy since the contest for a replacement PM began after Liz Truss resigned last week, but the new PM is already garnering chatter for an altogether different reason: his exceedingly neat, curiously brand-minded fashion sense. Sunak, a former Goldman Sachs banker who starts his days with Peloton workouts but...

The Mystery of the Immaculate Concussion

The Mystery of the Immaculate Concussion

Marc Polymeropoulos awoke with a start. The feeling of nausea was overwhelming. Food poisoning, he thought, and decided to head for the bathroom. But when he tried to get out of bed, he fell over. He tried to stand up and fell again. It was the early morning hours of December 5, 2017, and his Moscow hotel room was spinning around him. His ears were ringing. He felt, he recalled, “like I was going to both throw up and pass out at the same time.”Polymeropoulos was a covert CIA operative, a jovial, burly man who likes to refer to himself as “grizzled.” Moscow was not the first time he had been...

A Deadly Day of Chaos at the Top of Mount Everest

A Deadly Day of Chaos at the Top of Mount Everest

It was morning and bright, and Reinhard Grubhofer, depleted and dehydrated, hoisted his body over a crest and rose uneasily. There, from the summit of Mount Everest, he could see everything. How the earth curved gorgeously in all direction; how wisps of clouds sailed beneath his boots. The view—out beyond his worries—was beautiful. But closer at hand, he could see trouble taking shape.He could feel it, too, shuffling with a dozen other climbers onto a slim patch of ground roughly the size of two Ping-Pong tables. The space was crowded. Shakily, Grubhofer held up a small flag and posed for...

America Is on a Death March

America Is on a Death March

Even as our television screens light up with armed, Confederate-flag-waving protestors raging against the tyranny of paper face masks and standing at moderate distances from their fellow countrymen, Americans, by substantial majorities, oppose lifting social-distancing measures.In a new , well over 70 percent of us oppose reopening gyms, dine-in restaurants, and movie theaters, while more than 60 percent are against flinging open the doors at barbershops, nail salons, and retail shops. This is no shock. It replicates that a wide majority of Americans—81 percent in the case of a —do not...
