Overcoming #EpistemicInjustices in the biomedical study of #ayahuasca: Towards #ethical and sustainable #regulation. New paper for “Cultural context and ethical issues in the therapeutic use of psychedelics” special issue of Transcultural Psychiatry 🧵1/
We (me and non-tweeter 🇧🇷 PhD lawyer Konstantin Gerber) reviewed 4 decades of biomedical research about the sacred and ancient vine of the Amazon, documenting how biomedicine systematically commits a specific kind of injustice: against indigenous people as givers of knowledge. 2/
The powerful concept of epistemic injustice was introduced 15 years ago by Miranda Fricker (University of Oxford) and greatly helped us frame and analyse some past and current trends in ayahuasca research, which is also important to psychedelic science in general. 3/ Image

On 1st October an 18.5% drop in the main crop price of cocoa in Ivory Coast was announced which will lead to millions of smallholder farmers falling further below the poverty line. It’s not a sale it’s #TheBigChocoSteal (2/7)
This fall in income for cocoa farmers will likely lead to increased inequality and vulnerability including more children working illegally on cocoa farms (3/7)

‘The Trojan Horse Scandal and the Problem of Equalities in Britain Today’.

The event examined the scandal from a broad range of perspectives, engaging with debates on #equalities, #liberalism, and #Britishness.

northernnotes.leeds.ac.uk/the-trojan-hor…
It also provided an opportunity to discuss and generate a dialogue about the significance of the 'Trojan Horse’ scandal and the duty placed on schools after the scandal to promote Fundamental British Values (FBV) in the promotion of #democracy.
Speakers analysed how both are reproducing narratives of racial discrimination & inequalities in a context that is informed by minoritising communities, #problematising specific religious #values, & essentialising the signification of social, religious, & cultural identities.

"#Data: a new direction" - a public consultation by @DCMS on "reforms to the UK’s #DataProtection regime":

A quick sample of initial reactions...

We're clearly going to be hearing a lot about #LegitimateInterests, as well as #commercial and #public ones. The real question being, how do this Government's interests actually align with YOURS?

140+ pages on a Friday is a lot to digest, but @lilianedwards' "penumbra of often futile determinedly populist ideas largely not evidence-based" seems entirely consistent with @DCMS's Drunkard's Walk through #data and #ID this past year...

It is very important in this period of humanity to take a serious look at what is happening in the world friends.

#Menticide is here & with it, a new attempt to establish a "#TechnoTotalitarian" rule over the lives of American citizens.

The final variant of #Coronavirus could very well be the manifestation of a #NewWorldOrder under #totalitarian rule.
That may sound absurd, but what is very concerning is that many talking heads in the media & even public figures are now making very carefully worded emotional appeals to logic to further induce a totalitarian #masspsychosis.

I am ready to talk about the #silencing of over 25,000 psychologists in Australia with regards to the safeguarding of children. We are threatened, harassed, coerced to provide only one #therapy to children or else! They tried to force me into this I said NO. Any journalists???
I am ready to talk to journalists, lawyers, bloggers and am now writing a book on this topic/issue. I am ashamed of my colleagues and the board who wilfully ignore the immature prefrontal cortex, the autistic brain, and their own ethics and guidelines #rogd #gender #transgender

A Thread About My Sister's Suicide in #Tennessee #Chattanooga. I will unroll once I figure out how. @TNHouseReps

My 25 year old sister shot herself and died this week in a small #Georgia town outside of #Chattanooga #tennessee where she worked at a local dentist practice. 1/
She suffered from anxiety and depression, both conditions of which the Dentist was allegedly aware. @TNHouseReps #Tennessee
She was dismissed from the job, possibly(?) after allegations of an affair surfaced between my sister and the 50+ year old Dentist, who is married with children. @TNHouseReps #Tennessee

The teenage brain is under reconstruction. The prefrontal cortex is not fully developed until minimum aged 25. A bit longer for males. The prefrontal cortex is largely responsible for: decision making, planning, organisation, focusing, impulsivity, aka executive functions
Managing emotions, predicting consequences of one’s choices and moderating social behaviour. This is #science #facts Anyone who says otherwise is brainwashed by #ideology Shame on any professional who ignores this #gender #trans #detrans #shame

As @life_is_art___ has pointed out, the #ARHQ & #KaiserHealth (plus others!) are studying patients without clear consent. The #CommonRule was changed in the CURES Act. It allows for something called #AlternativeConsent.

It's easier for researchers! 🤔
rethinkingclinicaltrials.org/chapters/desig…
Just a few screenshots from the description of #AlternativeConsent:
You can obtain consent from patients WITHOUT THEIR DIRECT KNOWLEDGE if the study is deemed
*minimal risk* to the patient.
Who determines such a thing?

No doubt, #ForcibleTapers were done w/#AlternativeConsent.
You'll find that in re: #AlternativeConsent, there's great discussion about preventing patient bias in trials.

They are allowed to dodge consent to avoid that *bias*. This cannot be #ethical. @process_x was right when she warned us about the changes made to the #CommonRule.

Hello 👋 new followers. Feel free to introduce yourself.

Me: A top strength of mine is “input” Others in pics.

I tweet A LOT. I tweet long threads with links to articles, with highlighted screenshots, links to others’ tweets. I hold onto info & reference past yet “futuristic”
You have to know the past to understand patterns and see possibilities as well as navigate past barriers for the future.

If you like control or boundaries, run now as I promise you I will be 🤯 for you.

If you like creativity, expression, innovation, equity, ethics, welcome.
I am going to constantly run around the world finding interesting concepts & facts, be passionate & outspoken on justice/equity, re-use old tweets to explore new facet in new thread.

I’ll shape shift & if you try to pin me down or box me in, you will be frustrated.

All me:

Industrial farming is one of the worst crimes of history

Forgive yourself for not knowing, What you didn't know before you learned it

In the Livestock Industry, cows are artificially eliminated by humans to produce a calf so that the cow can produce milk.

This means that millions of unwanted calves are brought into the world every year. Many will be slaughtered (bulls) shortly after birth, because these bulls are not suitable for milk production.

So it turns out that not only is @zoom_us' #FacialRecognition #algorithm so #racist it chops black people's heads off...

..but @Twitter's image processing #algorithms are #racist too:



It's getting to the point where we need an industry reboot; if #SiliconValley genuinely wants to build '#EthicslAI', it must delete 'em all and start again. Respecting #HumanRights this time.

So @cabinetofficeuk (@GDSTeam) has updated the #DataEthicsFramework for government and the public sector today - the first version of which was published by @MattHancock in 2018, when he was at @DCMS:
gov.uk/government/pub…

Two obvious questions:

1) Where are the published...
...ratings for all of the government & public sector data projects / programmes that have been started since 2018?

A framework that neither demands nor provides publicly visible outputs surely fails on two of its own 'overarching principles'; #transparency and #accountability...
2) Other than "consult with your team leader", what happens when a project 'fails' the framework - say a national programme that doesn't do a #DPIA, or a body that employs a #discriminatory #algorithm?

An 'ethics' framework without meaningful #consequences ain't #ethical at all.

That this tweet exists suggests the problem is not just a general "looking the other way".

The challenge must therefore be FAR more specific, e.g. why are *US medical professional bodies* not investigating fully, and striking off anyone performing such #illegal operations?
Once made aware by citizens of conscience - don't ASSUME knowledge: lodge formal #complaints, follow up & keep copies of all correspondence - if US institutions want to maintain #ethical credibility they will act.

If not, they'll be #complicit - with no "We didn't know" excuses.
The public duty lies with people who care - it doesn't need to be many, but they must take *appropriate* action. That's not just protest, nor writing articles, nor railing about them on Twitter - but finding out which body or bodies are empowered to act.

And making sure they do.

The seven so-called 'ethical principles' are here:

biometricsinstitute.org/ethical-princi…

Many of which vendors are already #legally required to follow, and noting the completed mess they get themselves into over "ownership" in number two... 🤦🏻‍♂️🤦🏻‍♂️🤦🏻‍♂️ ImageImage
I wonder how many of the vendors following these 'principles' *wouldn't* sell their #biometric wares to @metpoliceuk? (And not just because they failed to win a contract...)

The thing is, if your 'principles' don't meaningfully alter / inhibit behaviour, then they aren't really #principles at all.

Much less #ethical ones...

Simon touches on a key point in his first item.

As with #falsifiability in #science, in #practice '#ethics' only work in the context of a #profession or #community *from which one can be #excluded*.

Those wishing to be #trusted as #ethical must stop issuing '#principles' and...
..setting up #EthicsBoards like @Google's or private courts like @Facebook's @OversightBoard (both demonstrating how poorly #BigTech grasps basic concepts like #justice, let alone #ethics, and how both - as #sovereign powers - have utterly misconceived #community) and start to...
...genuinely #professionalise.

Not in the shitty, self-serving, #cartel-like fashion of many companies & industry bodies in tech, advertising - and yes, DP & privacy - but in broader, deeper, more #connected ways that *could* deliver the #trustworthy #institutions of the future.
