This is exactly why I say that wokeism is a threat to #LiberalValues, just like the libertarian/conservative conspiracy mongers and anti democratic folks are. TY @firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you respond to anything that makes you feel mentally uncomfortable by demanding the silencing of the person making you uncomfortable, you choke off your own growth. Most of the times I have become wiser, it’s been because somebody said something I didn’t like at first
Hey @email@example.com, you need to face the fact that social media will outlive you. That you're in a unique position at a unique point in cultural/tech evolution. And you know that this medium could be the democratization of attention, if you'd actually demand decentralization: #fediverse
Finished #Nomadland . Impressive filmmaking and an interesting subject, but I guess I worry that it gave a not exactly rosy but less than appropriately dark impression of homelessness. Glad I saw it.
Wokeism (critical race theory etc) argues "knowledge" (facts & good arguments) isn't proven but just a result of who has the most power to promote ideas in our cultural institutions. Overstated imo, but it sounds just like rightwing critiques of "the cathedral". #LiberalValues
Apparently I'm done with #JRE. Still love @firstname.lastname@example.org, but after he moved to @Spotify@twitter.com, the app was a horrible experience. Then somebody came up with a tool to translate the show back to an actual podcast by outputting an RSS feed. That worked great, but now it's dead. Really sucks.
This thing is over if too few people are committed to knowing what's true, willing to be honest no matter the cost, or actually care about the public good. #LiberalValues

Are there any Muslim democracies? This is the defense for Israel, that they don't exist. But that's misleading. No state can be both true to any religion and a true democracy. Israel is only a "Jewish democracy" cause most of their Muslims aren't allowed to vote. #LiberalValues
Why do almost all of my fellow free speech friends have a blind spot for Israel? How is it that they can tell you all about the evils of China in regards to Hong Kong etc but not spare a word for Palestine? #LiberalValues
