I never should have come back earlier in the year, but I was talked into it. I don’t belong there, and probably should have known it sooner.

The only randomized controlled trials out there for masks suggest otherwise. If masks have any positive effect, it is extremely limited. Masks are the talisman that we are choosing to believe in, not a real solution

This is batshit crazy. You are at higher risk of dying in a car accident than you are of dying of Covid. Travel by road - you isolated in your car - is exceedingly safe. Read more

Also: When Nike is hashtagging BLM and paying Colin Kaepernick a vault full of money to peddle insanely expensive shoes made by third world slaves to poor black people in the United States, the movement is no longer of the people, and will not achieve anything except building the pillars of power.

The point of Waco is that if you think that there is any moral restraint in how they act, they burned children to death to prove a point.  The minute they think this movement is a real threat, blood will flow in the streets.  When Goldman Sachs gets on board with your movement, it isn't a movement any more.

People who want to wear masks can wear them. People who want to avoid risk can stay home. Businesses that want to require masks can do so and people should comply. If a business wants to be open or doesn’t want to require masks they should be able to. If you don’t feel safe, don’t go there. There is no way to stop the Read more

And in the interest of disclosure, I dismissed comments on a different post of mine insisting that “progressive” “democratic socialism” was a moral imperative, and that my views show that I don’t care about the pain of other humans. I have no time for that nonsense any more than I have time for any other evangelical Read more

There is more uncertainty than certainty in the science.  He can dismiss me if he wants to.  Like others in the Kinjaverse, all it shows is that he is afraid of ideas that challenge him.  I am happy (as you well know) to confront differing ideas.  I object only to moral grandstanding.

Not sure what your point is here. As for dismissing comments, the only comments I have dismissed are those where people feel their political opinions provide them a moral high ground and where they demand acquiescence to that moral high ground. Those are conversations not worth having and I won’t engage with people Read more

I agree with all of this. I am consistently astonished at how people’s emotional Trump hate (no matter how justified it may be) makes them forget that his strongest feature is his breathtaking incompetence, as well as the fact that Bush, Cheney, and Rumsfeld were a real life Legion of Doom, and highly effective at Read more

If you beleive that climate change will shortly make the earth uninhabitable for humans, then you have no reason to care about racism, coronavirus, wealth disparity, or anything else.  None of that matters if climate is going to kill us all.
