Android : White people dying is not as effective a counter to Black people dying as you might think.…

Android : The term “herd immunity” has reached coded language status for me. When I hear people wishing for it in advance of a vaccine, I hear “I am okay with and, in fact, excited for the deaths of thousands of Black and elderly people.”

Twitter Web App : Ah, yes, if we start listening to the Centers for Disease Control about how to control disease centrally, we could end up with a disease that is controlled.…

Twitter Web App : Go here, scroll 6 down and listen to the Bhimsen Joshi track. absolute mastery of the form, and his harmonium player is incredible…

Twitter Web App : As an ER doctor, I feel compelled to correct a dangerous & upsetting new talking point from @realdonaldtrump. Lately he's been "boasting" that while #COVID19 rates are soaring, *deaths* are not as high. This is extremely disturbing for a few reasons. (1/9)

But they'll still turn this into some kind of crusade to protect people from firing

Android : Wait hold on. The people who signed the Letter? A shitload of them are on this weird new centrist proyect called “Persuasion”.

The shift from Greenberg and the TERFs (the original writers) to Thomas Chatterton Williams, Fukuyama and fucking Garry Kasparov?

All “Persuasion”.

Android : What if—and I know this is a wacky idea, but hear me out—what if, in the middle of a pandemic, we *didn’t* need to spend massive resources fighting the government’s attempt to be evil?…
