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.

I just got my Twitter account frozen for mocking the COVID conspiracies. Apparently I included too many of the algo keywords.

@nessinpjs @checkmatestate something something vaccines Bill Gates 5G the great reset.

Gotta say @StephenAtHome@twitter.com was great tonight. @jonstewart@twitter.com mocked the freakout over the lab leak hypothesis and while always obviously gifted, this was the first time I think we got a sense of the true spirit of @JonBatiste@twitter.com. Fantastic.

Be hard on issues, but soft on people. Progress is inclusive.

I really miss @joerogan@twitter.com. I wish he'd get back to doing the podcast.

"There should be a Jeopardy! category called 'A Coup By Who?', and all of the answers should be 'the United States'." -- my wife

The value of an idea is not its correspondence to a preexisting reality or a metaphysical truth, but simply the difference it makes in the life of the group. We permit free expression cause we need the resources of the whole group to get us the ideas we need.

Maybe we need a long public conversation about Israel between @IlhanMN@twitter.com & @RepSchneider@twitter.com. Instead we just have groups talking past each other, believing whatever they want, mischaracterizing each other's positions, and reality for most being defined by audience access.

Maybe the reason you don't promote crap like vaccines making your arm magnetic or having microchips in them is because then people will also dismiss your claims about the virus being a lab leak. Why should Dems accept the next Republican presidential win?

Democratic governments are created to serve their people, varied in goals & influence as they are. The only reason many Americans think our nation is devoted to freedom is because of the Bill of Rights, which tried to placate concerns that the Constitution was too authoritarian.

Frustrated by @mtaibbi@twitter.com @ggreenwald@twitter.com etc recruiting writers. So much potential but they don't seem to understand the moment. Please follow the lead of @adam by using your money/attention to help developers build out a new decentralized independent media ecosystem instead.

The tagline of my weekly podcast Culture War Radio is " Are Worth Fighting For". This (again) is what I mean. @jon_rauch@twitter.com's was a huge inspiration, but I'm much closer to @sullydish@twitter.com re the failure of the corporate press.
