A blueprint of gas chamber and crematorium II at #Auschwitz II-Birkenau. Educated engineers and architects designed crematoria & gas chambers. They believed in Nazi ideology & gave their knowledge at its disposal. Education without morals and ethics can become very dangerous.

The effect (and often the intention) of cancel culture is less to silence its immediate victims than to intimidate others with similar opinions into keeping quiet. So technically, it's exemplary punishment that induces self-censorship.

I've heard several people say that cancel culture isn't censorship, because people who get cancelled aren't prevented from speaking. This is technically correct, but only technically.

In the USSR, it wasn't only the Party censors who limited what writers wrote, it was every writer knowing in advance what they could and could not say, and what would happen to them if they erred. Fear is the greatest censor of them all.

For four months everything from POTUS has been “pass the buck” to States (buying N95 masks from China, or hoarding the national stockpile). But opening schools, 93% of which is state and local funding, now that’s in need of a (unenforceable) national mandate. Politics much?

An underappreciated part of income inequality is *disposable* income inequality: that is, income minus cost of living. Skyrocketing cost of living is why California has the highest poverty rate of any U.S. state, according to the Census' Supplemental Poverty Measure.

I did not know who else had signed that letter. I thought I was endorsing a well meaning, if vague, message against internet shaming. I did know Chomsky, Steinem, and Atwood were in, and I thought, good company. The consequences are mine to bear. I am so sorry.
