I am always looking for guests for my show. I believe that our society is fucked by our increasing division, an inability to understand each other, both accidental and orchestrated. I think we can and must overcome it, through conversation and applying some principles of fairness we're starting to forget. Thanks.
This pulls a lot of the best work together, although some of it is regrettably behind paywalls.
This is my exact view of our insane level of political division, @ComicDaveSmith@twitter.com is making a lot of sense here https://t.co/1CsNnBrCAo
I find it weird that people want more content from the same people. I get that you're fans for a reason, but don't we know that we all need to get a greater variety of perspectives? Follow them on social media & something like an article/podcast per week perhaps... #LiberalValues
#MAGA loves the year 1776. I think that's supposed to make the case for violent revolution when liberty & American values are being suppressed. Maybe the left should respond with 1859, when religiously inspired John Brown tried to initiate a slave revolt.
Fodder for whatever story you want to tell. Precise journalism matters.
Understanding the value of open protocols on the internet is now just as important as having a good grasp of civics and critical thinking. #LiberalValues
I was wrong. I didn't think @POTUS@twitter.com would fight so hard to stay in office after losing the #Election2020.
I’m reminded of a fascinating 2009 Rolling Stone profile of Kris Kristofferson written by Ethan Hawke. Toby Keith’s name was blinded as “the Star” in this wild anecdote from Willie Nelson’s 70th birthday concert.
On the same day Trump is impeached for inciting an insurrection, @SenatorDurbin@twitter.com spoke with incoming Secretary of State @ABlinken@twitter.com to get him to recognize Juan Guaidó, a guy who attempted a coup, called for sanctions & an invasion, & contracted mercs to murder Venezuelans.
Brother @RepKinzinger@twitter.com, I love your energy, even though I'm a Bernie Bro and don't support this impeachment. You are exactly the type of candidate that gets screwed by our duopoly/primary process. Please push #RankedChoiceVoting like they have in Maine and free the voters. Thanks.
Now do the #fediverse.
The reason I have so much passion for #Bitcoin is largely because of the model it demonstrates: a foundational internet technology that is not controlled or influenced by any single individual or entity. This is what the internet wants to be, and over time, more of it will be.
