The reason CDC changed the quarantine guidelines has more to do with trying to prevent cascading societal breakdowns than corporate expedience. A 10 day quarantine will cripple essential services. Do that math. A tidal wave is coming, global + US peak Jan 29.
What’s coming next is nothing like what’s come before. And it’s not about the severity of sickness (and that is not yet actually fully known) but rather everyone getting sick *all at once* and disrupting services and society further. Be careful, be kind, and brace yourself.
This may also coincide with geopolitical instability. Get what you need now, calmly and without drama. Get out of the way of people trying to serve in essential roles through this, under impossible circumstances. They deserve our full respect and support.

To understand this insane tweet, it's necessary to dig in to libertarian ideology a bit. Let's see where this comes from.
"Libertarians..have stated..the comparison, unfavorable to the former, of politics and economics, intent on showing the difference between, in sociologist Franz Oppenheimer’s words, “the political means” and “the economic means” of acquiring wealth."…
They are stuck on the view that wealth is either created by economic activity or "stolen" by political means. That, of course, is kinda nutty paranoia talking. But OK, that's what they think. Lots of yada, yada here justifying that. Then, at the end, you get the prize.

I happened to know that “learned helplessness” is one of Peter Thiel’s go-to phrases to describe what he believes is an erosion in human agency. It reminded me of it when AOC used the same phrase the other day.
Obviously, it’s common for people to use various turns of phrase. This particular one hit a nerve because of the emerging picture around Justice Dems connections to Thiel’s network, described in this thread and others.
We are starting to get a clearer picture of those network links. More soon. The questions around the small dollar donations are more than fair game and need massive sunlight.

If it’s illegal to game our system with large donations, the same should be true with small donations.

It seems plausible that @TedCruz in forcing the NS2 sanctions vote is trying to help give Putin talking points for this kind of rhetoric that would justify an attack against US domestic interests, giving Cruz a way to initiate a US civil war by foreign proxy. @mcfaul
Think EMP attack against the Northeast, perhaps co-signed by China.
I should note that I oppose NS2, also but question Cruz’s motives in demanding a vote on it now, especially when the Biden admin has already sanctioned Russian entities and this goes after a NATO ally.

1/Let’s talk about @AOC for a minute. What is she going on about? Blaming the president for not passing BBB and whatnot? Nevermind these are strawman arguments she has set up here, does she not see how Congress works? Manchin killed this. What is to be done but try again?
2/It seems her former chief of staff @saikatc put forth a “plan” a year or so ago suggesting how Biden could pursue a “BBB” effort without Congress, by repurposing the Fed around regional development loans.…
3/Now AOC seems to be suggesting that Biden should be “blamed” for not following Chakrabarti’s “perfectly good” plan. A plan that may or may not be constitutional because it cuts Congress out of the power of the purse, and likely has many other monetary policy implications.

Perhaps she would be more comfortable in the GOP or libertarian party. Just waiting for her to launch her NFT project and announce she is placing her assets into Bitcoin because ethics. 🙄
Product of a casting call.…

1/Time to get real. Most of what people perceive as ‘real’ the last five years has been a constructed stage play designed to tear the world apart. It’s a sham. People were duped. Don’t get fooled again. Here are just a few samples.
2/Kanye West wasn’t sincere in his presidential run. He was a GOP plant, run by Republican operatives, as we now know. He did this as part of a cynical psyop on the African American population, and was tight with Thiel, Musk, Candace Owens, Charlie Kirk, and Don Jr.
3/Brandon Straka was a former hairdresser and actor recruited to run the “WalkAway” campaign in mid-2018. He is now cooperating with DOJ and has provided “material” information. He was instrumental in the #Jan6 attack and is ratting on his accomplices.
