The comparisons with #Orwell & 1984 now too numerous to ignore. It's something of a parody of a prediction of course (you hope), but the early days of #IngSoc and #BigBrother are described in terms that ring true right now. Here's how that society comes to be:

A thread 👇
There exists an eternal system of classes, the high, the middle and the low. Nobody cares much for the low and they're basically ignored. Revolution happens when the middle overthrow the high. They do this by taking over the institutions.
An leftist middle class sees a chance to get their way and take charge, and creates an environment of #groupthink where compliance is essential. Those who disagree are removed & must be re-educated. The #ThoughtPolice have infiltrated our homes with technology. Nothing is private

On defining #creativity @rexjung :

Distinct from #intelligence – a superhighway; #creativity as a slow meandering process down dirt road / side road

Must be both #novel and @useful – beyond simple #utility – something #new within a social context. Unexpected links ✨🤓✨

1/ Just briefly wanted to talk about some of my concerns about how the media is covering the 2020 Women Candidates but I'll start with 2016. #MondayMotivation #mondaythoughts #GroupThink #WhiteMaleMedia #Bias
#Misogyny #Racism #Hypocrisy
2/Its problematic that our media is dominated by white males who work in groupthink (Look at #TheMuellerReport's groupthink 'conclusion' coverage). It's especially problematic when it comes to covering white male candidates vs female candidates, female & male candidates of color.
3/Thankfully we have news programs like @JoyAnnReid that are incredibly inclusive. I'd like to see more news programs follow her model, but even w/ that we still need MORE diverse voices on TV that we haven't really seen yet. We need more statistics based coverage less punditry.
