It's interesting that such articles are rare in the UK/US and show how a mix of hype, ignorance and company PR can drive a whole narrative. Of course a lot of people in the UK/US in both industry and science benefit from it short term by over-inflating it.

If you were obligated to publish devastating news about a Supreme Court Justice committing sexual assault and perjury, but wanted to make sure that the news had as little impact as feasibly possible, you'd do what did with the Kavanaugh story.

Listen stoner why didn’t you use your privilege to do something about the working class young people who have ended up banged up, jobless and with a criminal record for smoking weed like you.

We wouldn’t call people “race critical”. We shouldn’t call people “gender critical”. These people are hateful.

The US prison system is a business that makes corporations millions so the penal system in general is interested in making money rather than humane and responsible ways of holding people accountable

It's insane we locked a woman up for 5 years for sending her kid to the wrong school district. Literally everyone involved in that decision should be ashamed of themselves

Americans have become desensitized to how much we lock people up. Prisons and jails are not the answer to every bad thing everyone does, but we've come to use them to address nearly every societal ill.

I get why everyone gets mad when rich person X gets a short sentence and poor person of color Y gets a long one. The answer isn't for X to get more; it's for both of them to get less (or even none!!!) We should level down not up.

Richard Stallman of MIT, an Epstein defender, believes that pedophilia is fine if the child is willing. Hold on to that tidbit for a second.

The more I think about this, the more important it seems. JUSTICE, not FREEDOM, is what I want from software. Freedom could be a means, but is not the end.

What a joke. This prestigious award typically goes to prosecutors who make the biggest cases against terrorists, corrupt politicians, drug cartels, organized crime enterprises, etc. And now AG Barr is using it to honor... Team Kavanaugh.
