Millennials are constantly being tarred as "entitled." But what they really are is screwed.

To be clear, was me & , and she built the thing. But yeah, the idea was right but essentially can’t be built sustainably except by the platforms themselves.

Reason I come down on the left is that the left’s fear is ultimately that they’ll be precluded from opportunity or victimized, which seems more reasonable to me given that’s the explicit stated goals of the right’s leaders.

It’s absolutely fear driven, but the right is much more fear that’s loss aversion; hence why Trump voters are generally well off but see any advancement by non-whites as zero-sum & at their expense.

Yeah, of course. And ultimately almost all of these arguments boil down to seeing violence against marginalized people (Dreamers deported, people killed by police violence) as either “fake news” or acceptable when compared to a false economic promise.

The evidence shows that those who suffer the most career blowback are women & underrepresented minorities who critique systemic biases. We can judge by who gets to be CEOs/founders or get funding.

I grew up in a deeply red area (>85% Trump voters) and have family members who voted for him. If access to others is the credential, I feel fine, especially since Trumpists shout slurs & insults at me all day online, too.

Pine using their early & influential position in bitcoin to give substantial amounts to meaningful organizations is the best blockchain news I’ve heard all year.

I agree it’s generally a rhetorical nuclear bomb. It is also the literal stakes here; I have lost family members to polio & smalllpox because they didn’t have vaccine access.

What if single payer, but with a blockchain No, no, hear me out. Here's the plan: We create a single payer system. Then we also create a blockchain. The blockchain does nothing, but it gets the libertarians to agree to the plan bc their eyes gaze over when they hear "blockchain"

Also LOL at putting children in danger being civil. They have their pinky extended when other people’s kids die?

I always get to be adamant about protecting my child, here or anywhere else. That doesn’t make my twitter account a public health campaign.
