Why Wokeism Is A Religion – Michael Shellenberger Social media fuels rising and unwarranted certainty, dogmatism, and intolerance of viewpoint diversity and disconfirmatory information. Social media platforms including Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram reward users for sharing information popular with peers, particularly extreme views, and punish users for expressing unpopular, more moderate, and less emotional opinions. This cycle is self-reinforcing. Audiences seek out views that reinforce their own. Experts seek conclusions, and journalists write stories, which affirm the predispositions of their audiences. It may be for these reasons that much of the news media have failed to inform their audiences that there are no racial differences in police killings, that emissions are declining, and that claims of rising trans killings are unscientific.

Conservative Hospice Care – In her prophetic and apocalyptic novel Oryx and Crake (by far her better, and more acute, dystopian novel), Margaret Atwood foretells a future in which titanic corporations simultaneously create the diseases that infect the vast, poorer part of the population, as well as develop the medicines that prolong life, but which are designed never to cure the disease. Instead, the disease and medicines are jointly engineered to keep the patient alive long enough to transfer the patient’s pittance of worldly wealth to the corporations, a transfer timed to be completed around the time of their eventual demise. Denizens of the corporations live in gated communities where every luxury is available (including transplantable organs from designer animals), while the teeming masses outside are consigned to decaying favelas where narcotizing drugs, prostitution, pornography, and inexpensive titillation ensures their acceptance of and compliance to the system.
Whitlock: Mass Formation Psychosis explains Antonio Brown’s meltdown far more than CTE – TheBlaze Antonio Brown is nuts, and his addiction to Instagram and Twitter is making him crazier. He turned a rather routine sideline dispute between himself and Bruce Arians into a career-ending confrontation and walk-off. It’s not all that surprising if you have been following Brown’s descent. In 2018, ESPN’s Jesse Washington wrote a prescient piece on Brown and his love affair with the social media matrix. The article perfectly captures the negative impact social media was having on Brown’s reality and worldview. Brown is the micro. Professional sports are the macro. Social media has eroded the value and integrity of professional sports. It’s done the same thing to corporate media and public discourse. It’s at the root of American division. Social media is a cancer. Mass formation psychosis is just a strand of social media cancer.

Never Yet Melted » Of Course! Washington state lawmakers introduced a bill this month that would reduce penalties for drive-by shootings with the aim of “promoting racial equity”
The bill, introduced by Democratic Representatives Tarra Simmons and David Hackney ahead of the state’s 2022 legislative session, would eliminate drive-by shootings as the basis for elevating a first-degree murder charge to aggravated murder in the first degree, which carries a mandatory sentence of life imprisonment.
Drive-by shootings were added to the list of aggravating factors for murder charges in 1995. Other aggravating factors include the murder of law enforcement officers, murders committed by inmates while they are behind bars, and murder-for-hire schemes.
