Due to high #inequality, the party of the right is now the party of individual capital flow, not of business.

At least, those are the people calling the shots / creating the outlandish policy. 1/2

#brexit #trump #polarisation #polarization #democracy

Then that same #inequality drives #polarization by creating false scarcities, which produce economic threats, which make lower-risk (but lower-payoff) opportunities more attractive than others. This part of the equation is what our new paper is about.

Just found my last talk before self isolating then lockdown last March, which went well! NATO @STRATCOMCOE asked me to talk about social media & #democracy which isn‘t my area, so I got to talk about what were IMO the most important results of others.
@STRATCOMCOE I do manage to talk about public goods investment, antisocial punishment, where AI bias comes from & why you can‘t delete it, & in the q&a about the inequality/polarisation paper that‘s now just come out, as well as about 5 really great #digitalGovernance papers – in 20 minutes!

Or just watch this film, which pretty much covers the gamut of AI ethics, despite being in the context of cars.
