White Collar vs Blue Collar Divide

I'm a millenial who worked in an office pre-pandemic, was in university from 2018-2024, and is now re-entering the office workforce after having received my university degree. The differences between the pre and post COVID office cultures are astonishing to me. Supervisors can be in charge of virtual teams dispersed geographically across a state or country, you're considered weird if you go into the office on Mon-Thurs-Fri, and almost all office jobs are hybrid. These conditions make an office job so comfortable that it barely feels like work at times. Meanwhile working class employees in warehouses, trades, food service, hospitality, etc. are unable to reap the benefits of post-COVID office culture changes. How will this divide in working conditions between white collar and blue collar professions impact politics, the economy, and social life in the coming years?

Good Books on Middle Eastern History?

Do you have any recommendations on Middle Eastern history? I'm trying to expand my knowledge of the region. I've read the Palestine Laboratory by Anthony Lowenstein, and I'm reading Letters To My Palestinian Neighbour by Yossi Klein Halevi. I have the audiobook of The Loom of Time by Robert Kaplan, and I also have On Saudi Arabia by Karen Elliott House. This feels like a start, but I have a feeling I'm still missing out on large chunks of the regions history.

Reflection on Current State of the Israel-Gaza War

Can you do a reflection on the current state of the Israel-Gaza War? We haven't heard Marshall discuss it almost since the war broke out, although Saagar covers it pretty frequently on BP. How do you think the war has proceeded? Is Israel committing a genocide? Is Israel trying to expand the war to include Lebanon and Iran by sending troops into Southern Lebanon and striking the Iranian embassy?
