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...

Understanding the value of open protocols on the internet is now just as important as having a good grasp of civics and critical thinking.

Last week, I talked a lot about the conspiracy machine, especially how quickly it went to work on the Nashville bombing. And why it's worth thinking about in regards to . Then, news and music. Live again this Sunday at 9pm CST.

The left rejects liberalism because they don't think it can live up to its promises, while the right hates liberalism because they fear that it will.

Please read. I wish he would have wrote it somewhere else, but this is exactly what needs to be said. And nothing that doesn't.

People aren't ashamed enough of consistently sharing bullshit.

Concentrated wealth & power serves its own interests, and they have more power & wealth to do so. So it concentrates further.

It's only a public thinking of itself broadly, capable of violence but grounded in that has ever sustainably decentralized power & wealth.

I just try to live up to the ideals they talk about on this episode, on social media & my show "Culture War Radio". I call them straight up even if that term isn't popular right now. Thank you forever @ggreenwald@twitter.com & @joerogan@twitter.com.

Generally, the right wants to silence mainstream media while the left wants to shut down alternatives like etc. Instead of censorship, why don't we agree on good journalistic norms, how to fund responsible press/tech & teach critical media consumption?

The "truth" is complicated. Objective reality is unknowable so all we can do is work through our subjective understandings together. We must want to know. We must learn the standards for decision-making & why. We must be brave enough to publicly change our minds.

Viva ! @Yascha_Mounk@twitter.com @anneapplebaum@twitter.com (and others I need to identify) give a bad name. They're fakes. They pretend to support free people informing themselves and thinking critically and accountable government while actually advancing US imperialism.

Didn't all those other nominees get hearings @tedcruz@twitter.com? Haven't many nominees by the president of one party gotten lots of votes from Senators of the other party? In America, we give a fair hearing to the opinions of people who disagree with us.

Of course. Please push back on stupid propaganda like this no matter which candidate/party you support.

Would you say anything if you saw supporters of your party/candidate trying to illegally manipulate the vote? I think a lot of the people complaining about this most vocally wouldn't. They'd justify it in their heads that the other side is doing it too.

This is illiberalism. If we don't care more about the political system than achieving political power, the end of our republic is only a matter of time.

The worst part of being so close to the election is that somehow people are even more likely than normal to act like political consultants pushing/attacking candidates/parties instead of engaged citizens discussing and trying to better understand issues and policy.

If any of @realDonaldTrump@twitter.com's supporters saw their child treated at HS debate club in the same way he treated @JoeBiden@twitter.com on Tuesday, they'd have no problem with their kid punching the little bastard. Yet they laugh when he does it. We're broken.

No person, party, or ideology has the answers. But using the tools we've developed to better know reality & build institutions together, we can improve. My efforts are dedicated toward what @dccommonsense@twitter.com calls "making better drivers".

was confirmed by a vote of 96-3 in 1993 when the Senate was 57-43 Democrats. There is no reason that a Senate majority of the same party as the president should be required to confirm a justice, if we believe in the public interest over partisanship.
