There's a circle in Hell past the genociders, for people who take Koch money and then say we need to cooperate with China to fix global warming.

You're looking to buy counterfeit vax cards on the dark web. I'm looking to buy unapproved mRNA with omicron spike protein on the dark web. We are not the same.

Please don’t listen to or elevate this weirdo. His whole jam is telling people to panic for Twitter engagement. He overstates everything or just gets shit completely wrong and he’s not a subject area expert, just a loud asshole.

South Africa has plenty of vaccine supply. Supply is not the issue. Uptake is, as it is in the US too. They also have exceptional scientists who have been very proactive about sequencing variants, which is how the world is finding out about this one.

I can't get over the fact that he's genuinely & openly threatened by Queen Latifah playing The Equaliser.
Conservative MP Nick Fletcher says Doctor Who being played by a woman has pushed young men into crime.

Covid variants feel like the ultimate Rorschach test to me. Everyone, essentially, seems to find confirmation of their private preconceptions and pet obsessions in their emergence, whatever their views on politics, restrictions, vaccines, pronouns, Squid Game, and whatnot ...

Just maybe paying off corrupt elite is the best way to make friends with a general population.

The clearest evidence for the way that social status in the US is defined by profession rather than by income is that NY Times reporters regularly confuse petit bourgeois business owners in blue collar industries for the working class
Could the NYT have found anyone less sympathetic to talk about gas prices? This man drives a 50 year old muscle car and a 20 year old mega SUV. He’s not the average American!

It was always a trap
Chairs ask @iocmedia President Bach to intervene on human rights violations in China in the lead-up to the #BeijingGames2022, as he has intervened regarding #PengShuai's human rights. "Your video call shows that you can in fact use the power of your office."

No way that Apple-NSO case could backfire on Apple, when it comes to discovery with the PRC. No possible way...

Except Xi is extremely transparent with what China's about to do.
China experts face the same challenge. For all of our advances in social science methods, it is striking to me how time we still spend (and rightly if tragically so) on reading tea leaves about Xi's or Putin's intentions.
