I don't know who needs to hear this, but providing examples of being nice or supportive to women in your own family does not make on a feminist or pro-woman nor does that make you anti-racist regarding POC or WOC or BIPOC. The "I am a good person" is at the root of much harm.
Okay, I do know who needs to hear this and this was not really a subtweet because the individuals who fit this description do not use Twitter. But there is more than one individual who may or may not need to have some deep reflection on what "I am a good person" says about ego.

The @federalreserve’s #JacksonHole Policy Symposium has typically been thought of as an event of #academic contemplation, rather than of active #policy innovation, but 2020’s event proved to be the exception to the rule.
That’s because #Fed #ChairPowell surprised many by introducing the #FOMC’s Statement on Longer-Run Goals and Monetary Policy Strategy, which was not expected until later in the year.
In many respects, the Strategy statement represents a mirror image to the #Fed’s stance more than a generation ago, in August 1979, when Chair Paul #Volcker took over leadership of the central bank…

1/ The legalisation of Magic mushrooms for medical purposes is being considered with some heavyweight backing.

Magic mushrooms should be legalised as a potential medical treatment for depression and mental ill health, say leading doctors in a major report on the emerging
2/ benefits of the drug.

The researchers, from King’s College, London, Oxford and Manchester universities, say psilocybin, the psychedelic compound in magic mushrooms, has been shown in early trials to be a promising treatment for mental health conditions such as
3/ post-traumatic stress disorder.

They propose a law change that would re-categorise it as a drug that could be legally used as a therapeutic treatment in medical trials in a similar way to the Government’s rescheduling of cannabis for medical use.

Comment se fait-il que le beurre que nous consommons à Kinshasa provient des Ardennes et autres régions européennes ? Pourtant, nous avons en #RDC tout ce qu'il nous faut pour en produire et commercialiser. Cette question est valide pour tout autre produit. #development #policy
Posons-nous des questions sur nos habitudes en tant que consommateurs ainsi que leurs conséquences sur l'économie de notre pays.
Les agro-entrepreneurs se posent-ils ces questions ? On-t-ils réfléchi à comment inciter leurs compatriotes à consommer local ? Inciter cette fibre patriotique dans la consommation des produits congolais ?
