For a concise overview of why #SCOTUS should overturn Jacobson v Massachusetts (1905) that public health officials regularly invoke to uphold state police power to mandate compulsory vaccination, check out Barbara Loe Fisher's 15-min video
In a nutshell, #SCOTUS back in 1905 used bad logic, relied on old science & made ridiculous assumption that doctors are infallible to give govt green light to force healthy Americans to risk their lives with a pharmaceutical product based on “common belief” rather than fact

Piously waving the “greater good” flag, #SCOTUS in Jacobson v Massachusetts threw civil liberties out the door creating the legal club used today to take away your right to freedom of thought, conscience & religion when making vaccine decisions for yourself or your children

#Regionales2021 Abstention historique mais le constat est qu'on nous annonçait le "triomphe" de sujets hors compétences (sécurité, immigration, identité) comme pivots électoraux et en fait le choix a eu lieu autour de la territorialité et personnalités et projets les incarnant ⤵️
#Regionales2021 Et entendre Marine Le Pen et ses acolytes littéralement engueuler "leurs" électeurs pour ne pas être allés voter c'était aussi un moment particulier. L'enracinement territorial ne s'obtient pas par des incantations, qui est la limite du "populisme playbook" ⤵️
##egionales2021 Le contre exemple c'est Marine Le Pen elle même aux #departementales2021, où son binôme avec Steeve Briois arrive avec 61%, largement devant la gauche avec 30% et devra l'emporter assez facilement par le vrai enracinement de l'élu local S. Briois. A réfléchir ⤵️

@naomirwolf 1. I'm glad that I don't shop at your market! I #WearADamMask bc I'm a #ResponsibleCitizen who cares about others! BTW I've gotten both #Pfizer shots & will continue to wear a mask bc of the #Careless #Behavior of people like you! And I doubt that lots of those who say they......
@naomirwolf 2. don't #WearADamnMask bc of a health reason really have a valid health issue! They feel that the rules don't apply to them! #Entitled! Kids need a note from a dr when they don't go to school! Adults should have a note from a dr to excuse them from wearing a mask!.....
@naomirwolf 3. Did it occur to you that perhaps the shoppers didn't comment on your lack of #Mask bc they were afraid of your reaction. I've been in 1 situation where a dad & his young dau didn't have a mask. I didn't say a word bc I didn't want to start WWIII. But I was seething!.....

@AmerIndependent @RepNancyMace
1. For years I’ve had to go thru a #MetalDetector every time I’ve entered a #FedBldg. Apparently there is a law that prohibits Americans from bringing guns into a #FedBldg. Doesn’t the #US Capitol qualify as a #FedBldg?…
@AmerIndependent @RepNancyMace 2. It’s my understanding that this law was put in place to protect #FedEmployees. I’ve been screened numerous times when I’ve been called for #JuryDuty or when I’ve had to go to the local #SocialSecurity office. One time I had a 4 inch nail scissors in my pocketbook when I went..
@AmerIndependent @RepNancyMace 3. to my local @SocialSecurity office. I wasn’t allowed to take it past security. I had to leave it with #Security until I finished my business in the bldg. I’ve had to go thru #MetalDetectors @MACourts. Americans have to go thru this process for the #CommonGood & what is good

@FrankBruni 1. These people are unbelievable & they’re #InCharge? Either they don’t know our laws or they think that they’re #AboveTheLaw! Americans can’t enter a #FedBldg w/o going thru a #MetalDetector! I’ve been screened numerous times thru the yrs. @mtgreene:…
@FrankBruni @mtgreene 2. Once I had a 4 inch nail scissors in my pocketbook when I went to my local #SocialSecurity office. I wasn’t allowed to take it past security. I had to leave it with #Security until I finished my business in the building. I’ve also had to go thru a #MetalDetector when....
@FrankBruni @mtgreene 3. I’ve gone into a #StateCourt to serve on a jury. I’ve done this numerous times as well! Now #GOPReps are having #Tantrums about having to go thru the same process we’ve all been doing for ages! What a #DoubleStandard!

@RepSteveStivers 1. Did you tell @CapitolPolice that a #MetalDetector is #Unconstitutional? Why is it that #WeThePeople have had to go thru 1 when we enter a #FederalBldg for yrs? I've had to be #Screened numerous times! Why is this #Unconstitutional for #GOPMembers but not for #WeThePeople?
@RepSteveStivers @CapitolPolice 2. Talk about a #DoubleStandard! What's good for #WeThePeople is good for all #Politicians! Why is it that @GOP can't do what needs to be done for #CommonGood? #Elitism And #WearADamnMask!
@RepSteveStivers @CapitolPolice @GOP 3.And how is giving the @CapitolPolice a hard time supporting the @CapitolPolice! #GOPHypocrisy

At a time when more & more people are facing extended periods of time at home or in isolation because of #CoronavirusOutbreak, you may be interested in a @BBCRadio4 series I made in Sept 2018 called 'Morality in the 21st Century' (h/t producers: Christine Morgan & @dondantini). Image
In this five-part series (and the extended conversations) I explored some of the big moral questions of our time, including the need to move from an 'I' to a 'We' society. All episodes and extended conversations are available here:
As part of the series, I spoke to some of the world's most brilliant thinkers incl. @jordanbpeterson, @noreenahertz, @jean_twenge, @nytdavidbrooks, @JonHaidt, @RobertDPutnam, @mustafasuleymn, Prof Nick Bostrom, @sapinker, @melindagates & Prof Michael Sandel.

In 2017 I was honoured to deliver a @TEDTalks in which I spoke about how we could face the future without fear, together. Faced with the sudden challenge of #Coronovirus, this talk seems all the more pertinent. You can watch or read it in full at Image
In the @TEDTalks, I argued that the simplest way to safeguard the future 'You' was by strengthening the future 'Us' in three dimensions: the 'Us' of #relationship, the 'Us' of #identity and the 'Us' of #responsibility. Never has this seemed more true than in today's world.
I also offered a suggestion of how this could be done. Do a search and replace operation on the text of your mind and wherever you encounter the word "self," substitute the word "other."

I suppose we can safely say that now #TheFrighteners have been so successfully and publicly put on a certain sector their combined angst will spew a diarrhoea of spin & warp whilst trying to use THAT VERY THING to generate $£Es Some with automated AdTech software already bought.
2/ Some bought by gormless companies, by mistake, some in full knowledge or partial knowledge of what it could do. It will be interesting as time goes on to see who apparently DIDN'T CARE about the likely instigation of its more negative 'dark' capabilities looking to 'side-step'
3/ or even 'wrong-foot' Irish & EU regulation standards, & possibly law. This too is a kind of #climatechange & #ClimateAction in itself, a would be mammoth untouchable iceberg of 'dominion' & 'control' being melted out into an ocean of citizens' scrutiny & advancement for change
