Sometimes the back and forth about big ideas in the news, politics and culture can get confused or personal on social media. That's why I host a weekly stream/podcast (no edits) & invite everyone on. Please join me. Thank you.
@theblockchainsocialist think you could get Greenwald to try out the fedi? maybe we could even set him up with a server etc...
This captures the absurdity and deceit of our current discourse so completely and fully that it's hard to believe it actually happened.
It's so rare for perfection this pure to materialize. The universe is speaking loudly here. Appreciate what it just provided:
We could eliminate all primaries (and political parties as anything more than an endorsement organization like the Sierra Club etc) with #RankedChoiceVoting general elections.
You can be a hardcore advocate for outside of the norm policies, admit where people who generally agree with you are wrong, and not be an aggressively divisive asshole. It won't make you popular with the media or activists, but it can win you the support of voters. #LiberalValues
It doesn't make sense that @firstname.lastname@example.org would claim that protecting free speech on @Twitter@twitter.com is vital, that he'd offer $43b for a company valued at $37b at the time, and then back off after finding out more than 5% of accounts are bots.
Look at why you want to believe what you do.
Driving home from Michigan, will be live at the normal time, 9pm CT. Let's talk about the news this week. Here's the show from last Sunday night.
#RogueOne is so much better than Solo and all of the sequel trilogy films. But Gareth Edwards doesn't want to do any more @email@example.com films. Damnit.
So @firstname.lastname@example.org's acquisition of @email@example.com is on hold cause it might not be as profitable as he was hoping. Doesn't this prove he's not really doing it for the public interest of free speech? But we more geeky advocates of decentralization already knew that. #fediverse
