Having Moderna & Pfizer CEOs say a 4th shot is necessary undermines what little trust in institutions remains. Why should we take the word of the people who stand to profit the most w obvious conflicts of interest? Science must be independent of pharma greed. Nationalize them

will be basically over in the US by March, maybe sooner. The virus won't be gone but few will be hospitalized & almost no one will die from it. Omicron will have displaced Delta & immunized those not already vaccinated.

Can we ask the deeper questions about outside of ideology? If you thought a presidency had been stolen, what should be done? How do we better ensure that it can't happen in the first place? Can we prevent people from being misled about that outcome?

"We need a liberal democracy, so we need to take on the main threat which is Wall Street, an autocratic force. They want to rule and don't want anyone else to have any power. That's the actual root of all of these problems." - (paraphrased)

Why does providing useful directions make us happy? You have no relationship with this person. There's no expected reward. It won't improve your reputation. You're not winning some kind of argument. It's purely an internal sense that you were helpful.

Just got a religious ad on . Would religious folk be ok with an ad that advocated atheism?

Is there a web3 site where I can bet crypto on when fizzles out?
