Stuff I found interesting or amusing and thought I'd share.
- Noah Smith: Losing sight of the Future. Noah misses the mark - the main reason for the apparent pessimism about the future is the media who only pushes negative story lines. "Doom scrolling" as Tim Ferriss puts it. AOC says the world will end in 12-years because of climate change and she gets max play in the news. CRT pushes that everything in America is racist and if you disagree you're a racists and also banned on the social media platforms. Etc, etc.
- In October 2020 the Great Barrington Declaration was released. Over 50,000 scientists and healthcare professionals signed it (listen to the science - remember) yet the Declaration and signers were mocked by the media (not refuted - mocked). Read it today and it's just common sense - just as it was in October 2020..
