Here's an example of oppressive mathematical practices Easy to shake your head at images like that but in context they probably make a lot more sense.

There's a diff between critiquing the potentially oppressive USE of numbers and critiquing the value of the numbers themselves. Unilever may be using its 25K data points in a dubious way, but we all agree that 25,000 is more than 24,900. If we don't, we can't run a viable society

Such a cynic, that Fred. Who knows. Maybe he’ll be right about it making us stronger.

So I've heard. One of my favorite followers lives in the area and reports frequently on the degradation of daily life there. Seattle was always considered one of America's most engaging and livable cities. No longer, it sounds like.

Fortunately K-12 educators have a dismal record of success.

When has data and math been about liberation? That cannot be real.

It's everywhere. Everywhere. The maddening part is no discussion/disagreement is even allowed.
