@ProjectLincoln We have to learn more about authoritarianism -- the root of our current problems.

#Freedom #Democracy
@ProjectLincoln We all know:

DJT is an authoritarian leader

"Authoritarianism is deeply embedded in America today

"Trump's base is compromised of personality types that include social dominators, authoritarian followers, as well as "double highs" who combine the worst traits of the two.
@ProjectLincoln "Prejudice is the glue that holds this coalition together.

"Religious beliefs are not really that important to those who identify as religious fundamentalist or evangelical;

not compared with the power that fear and prejudice have over them."

Don't hate on the bottom sellers, they give you the juicy entries. To clarify, I didn't sell everything but I did take some off the table.
#defi is kinda like a guy exercising, running around in the sunshine and smashing pushups. At the end of the hour he goes back to his cell. Freedom was an illusion, temporary. DeFi is only permissionless until the regulators hit the stop button.
But isn't my coin unconfiscatable & uncensorable? Sure you can trade your coin back & forward with each other but in a vacuum it's meaningless. What good is a crypto asset if it's unable to be traded for anything?

This week in #history (1809): Thomas Paine passes away. He is best known as the author of Common Sense, a pamphlet that advocated for independence from Great Britain. Its blunt assessment of the situation rocked Revolutionary War America.

The pamphlet was an instant hit.

“Common Sense was the most incendiary and popular pamphlet of the entire Revolutionary era,” historian Gordon Wood explains,

THREAD Re. today's expected flood of "Dear #Tito" tweets:

Hello, Connections! Welcome back to my weekly column #ATHCOriginal #AskATHC. Today, I want to discuss a rather controversial topic—#Women.

#UnitedShowbiz #Gender #eqyality #Education #womenempowerment #TedTalk #Inspiration #Movies
Last week, I discussed #ContentWriting, but today's topic is different. Before going further, I want to declare outright that I am not a feminist or atheist. I am just a pragmatic, who sees a glass & water as two distinct things rather than seeing it half-empty or half full.
World has moved forward. Girls have gone to space! But culture, religion, ethics, & social evils continue to haunt girls worldwide. I don't want to talk about India, you've plenty of cases where women face atrocities almost every single day here. #RuralIndia #WomenLifeFreedom

1/4🧵 Introducing the concept of: Dictamocracy

Dictamocracy: any type of government whose leadership, policies, agreements & socioeconomics which serves the dictated-interests of outside democracies or the directed geopolitical aims of expansionist hegemonies. #Democracy #World Image
2/4 Democracy: any type of government whose authority represents the values of the governing country through the social norms, prosperity, welfare, security & economic needs of its own citizens.

Diff Democracies:

Western Democracy

Chinese democracy

Russian democracy

#freedom Image
3/4 Dictatorship: the opposite of Western democracy or typically any single-party government that rules with an iron fist against outside interferences/collaborations.

Capitalism: the worst form of democracy

Undemocratic: depends on which side you support

#Distort, #discredit, #dismiss - 6 additional tactics of media manipulators and why they work to sabotage public discourse


Details follow:
1/ 6 types of media manipulators
Anti-science activism never went away, it got a new ugly face in the #information age:

Quacks, gurus, contrarian doctors, fake experts, influencers, political commentators and similar media manipulators.

Previously we looked at "merchants of #doubt"

Today, we take a look at the "merchants of #ambiguity"

Their overarching goal is to create the perception that scientific issues are either eternally #unresolved or that #alternative interpretations are just as plausible or likely.

“One of the main prerequisites for enabling normal life for our clergy, monastics, and faithful people in Kosovo and Metohija is the need to ensure a special legal status for our Church.”…
“It should be granted under internationally guaranteed protection . . . of our identity, religious freedom, and property rights, ensuring in the meantime economic sustainability, since our communities live on their own hands and labor.”

Bravo. Great day, indeed for #Freedom &. @NATO ! The best bit is that the Russians already know the Finns are even better and more persistent #Resistance fighters than the Ukrainians, that is if that were even possible.
#Putin it is time for you to reopen World War II history books and read what really happened up north then and thereafter, not the fake history you imagine or want your people to believe.
Put one toe over the new 800 km Finnish border with @NATO , and you shall feel the full might of the #AlliedFreedomForces. C’est comme dans Les Trois Mousquetaires: « tous pour un et un pour tous » et mon D’Artagnian à moi, c’est @jensstoltenberg !

re-watching "All the President's Men" reminded me sharply of something that honestly should have been more *obvious* to me—it's a simple but telling thing.

the @elonmusk / @mtaibbi / @bariweiss fascist crowd don't champion *liberty* or *freedom*. only "#FreeSpeech".

of course one can't say that the @mtaibbi / @elonmusk crowd meaningfully believe in "free speech" as more than a convenient badge, a flag they wave, a message they wear on signboards—for that is how fascists see *all political language*. to them, it's all mere branding.

but it's telling all the same that it's just the one very particular sort of #freedom that the @elonmusk / @mtaibbi / @ShellenbergerMD crowd pretend to admire (even though they don't, really.)

that's very typical of Western thinking, unfortunately. they're not alone.

#Freedom can flow from order. That is not to say that freedom always flows from order because you can have a totalitarian order and you can have an undemocratic order from which freedom will not flow, but that surest way to destroy freedom is to have chaos. Pierre Elliot Trudeau
Obviously I prefer freedom, but I know, and I think all history has told us, that freedom cannot flow from anarchy and disorder. Pierre Elliott Trudeau

If Canada is to survive, it can only survive in mutual respect and in love for one another.
Pierre Elliott Trudeau
My idea of freedom is that we should protect the rights of people to believe what their conscience dictates, but fight equally hard to protect people from having the beliefs of others imposed upon them.
