Aucun noir (à part Michael Jackson) ne blanchit avec l’âge.
Aucune femme ne change de sexe malgré elle.
Mais tout « jeune » est, à son corps défendant, un futur vieillard.
L’ennemi ("#Boomer") qu’il se donne n’est pas son adversaire ni son antipode, mais son destin👇
Comment brandir comme une vertu en soi le fait (hautement provisoire) d’être jeune ?
Contrairement à l’assignation religieuse, aux pratiques sexuelles ou à la couleur de la peau, la jeunesse n’a aucune chance de durer.
Il n’est pas innocent, en cela, que #OKBoomer ne soit pas
#OKbabyboomer.
Le « baby » est tombé. Car il faut (autant que possible) oublier que les vieillards d’aujourd’hui étaient les bébés d’hier. Le slogan neutralisateur est aussi l’outil du déni.

My annual Wednesday-before-Thanksgiving show tradition is to provide 10 handy conversation starters for around the table tomorrow, especially if there are strangers who are shy and older people who can't hear so well. #ThanksgivingConversationStarters
1. I think Sonderland made a lot of sense, didn't you?
2. Climate change? Did you see the beautiful day they are having in New York for the parade? A little wind on an island and people yell "climate change. Sheesh.
#ThanksgivingConversationStarters
3. Pretty obvious that Hillary's got this in the bag if she jumps in. Country needs her.
4. What's #OKBoomer really mean? It can't be intended to disrespect the people who built this country...or prepared this meal? #ThanksgivingConversationStarters

Früher sagte man immer, dass man Provokateuren keine Aufmerksamkeit schenken sollte, weil sie davon zehren. Dieselben scheinen sich heute unter der Raute #Nuhr zu versammeln. Und ich frage mich ehrlich gesagt, warum. 1/x
Vorhin las ich zum Thema darüber in der @HNA_online, und konnte mir nicht erklären, warum sich alle so aufregen; generell hat er durchaus Recht. Wahrscheinlich liegt es aber daran, dass diejenigen, die „Rechtstwitter” vorwerfen, in einer Blase zu leben, selbst in einer solchen 2/
@HNA_online hausen. #FFF für wenig realistische Konzepte einzustehen, ist nicht verwerflich, und verdient auch keinen Shitstorm. FFF polarisieren mehr als dass sie kooperieren, was letztlich ihrer Bewegung mehr schadet als nützt. Ob man es ihm abnehmen möchte, dass er die Proteste insgesamt

In this piece for @TheAtlantic, @jonhaidt and I explore how social media has upended our institutions in the last 10 years. We seek to answer: Why does it feel like everything has gone haywire? And what can be done to fix it? 1/x theatlantic.com/magazine/archi…
@TheAtlantic @JonHaidt The founders of the United States thought a lot about human psychology, and included mechanisms in the Constitution to let passions cool & encourage reflection and deliberation. Many of social media’s features today do exactly the opposite. 2/x
On social media, outrageous content is naturally more viral than other types of content. And indignant disagreement garners nearly twice as much engagement. 3/x

"What is the #economy? I would argue that it doesn't exist in the physical world. It is a product of our #imagination. It is made out of #ideas. It does have an effect on the physical world. But the imagined order that we have is not succeeding."

I saw @MikeBloomberg speak to a group of rich executives end of 2018, when he was already considering running for president. I was so shocked at his views that I took notes.

Here are the highlights: (thread)
He opposes legalizing marijuana and criminal justice reform; used the "gateway drug" argument.
He's against investing in tech education in public schools because -get this- "we invest in computers and then they're used for porn and to plagiarize homework" , verbatim.

I could spend a whole thread just on this but there's more to cover.
