Race rights, The fragility of Sanity

Glenn Loury on race and a host of other things. neo — “It’s about any system that results in disparity. So if you have any kind of disparity between racial groups in any given institution, school culture system, it is evidence in and of itself that racism is present.” … “Kendi’s formulations are sophomoric. They don’t bear up under the least bit of serious, rigorous social scientific scrutiny. He’s not standing on any literature. He’s not citing any intellectual development that has any deep roots in anything. It’s pablum.”

Now That He Has Been Exonerated Over Jan. 6, Trump is Filing Lawsuits Against Social Media Giants – Beginning with Twitter. Kyle Becker — “Defendant is liable for its own speech as well as its own actions. When Defendant works as a partner with the government to censor its Users’ First Amendment rights, Defendant is legally accountable for its deeds. … Defendant’s false statements posted on Plaintiff’s Twitter account are unfair trade and deceptive practices, as Users joined Twitter with the expectation that they would be treated fairly and without slander,” read the filing.”

What Happens When We Find Justice Isn’t Blind?. Thaddeus G. McCotter — “American history and her institutions are built on the central political idea of equal justice for all.”

The Fragility of Political Sanity. W.R. Wordsworth — “The classical liberal tradition that inspired America’s founding is rooted in a deeper Enlightenment tradition that rose in principled opposition to religious conflict in Reformation Europe.”

One might like to assume that people are basically reasonable and that episodes of brutal domination are historical aberrations, but such practices as the burning of heretics and the slaughter en masse of errant co-religionists did not simply end on their own — people didn’t just come to their senses one day. Political sanity is not as self-recommending as one might like to assume; arguments for toleration had to be made, and they had to gain general acceptance, supplying new norms. These norms had to be codified into laws and these laws safeguarded by institutions designed to uphold them.  …

We need not stand by as our shared culture is mischaracterized by a band of malignant fabulists who,  having reduced all past history to a bland and dismal tale of brute domination, proclaim their turn to dominate has arrived.

Back the Blue? H.P. Smith — “my thoughts on this issue have taken a sharp turn in recent months, directly relating to behavior I’ve witnessed from law enforcement, particularly during the time of COVID lockdowns and restrictions.  This is not to say I no longer “back the blue.”  Rather, it is to say that I no longer do so in a nearly unconditional way.” … “The question is, Will our policemen and women respond in the same way as those in Melbourne and stand against us?  Or will they stand with us and say “No”?”

The War on Masculinity Will End Badly. J.B. Shurk — “I have long believed that one of the most dangerous mass movements gripping the West today is the suicidal drive to emasculate, and even infantilize, men.” … “What happens when men who just wanted to be left alone finally decide they’ve had enough?  Where does all that bottled-up energy go then?”

Vaccine Mandate Will Cost Us All. Anony Mee — “Problems inherent in OSHA’s forthcoming new mandatory co-vax standards will be legion. How do we know that?”

Anyone, even the doubly-vaccinated, can acquire, carry, and transmit the disease asymptomatically. The blatant targeting of some but not all individuals who might be asymptomatic carriers (for just a few days) of a virus that is almost always survivable, will certainly create a hostile work environment. Such a practice is unfair and, given the demographics of the unvaccinated, comes awfully close to being systemically racist and anti-religion.

The website details the WHO’s work against COVID-19 in India, including a discussion about their “Online course for Rapid Response Teams.” … “A daily onslaught of media propaganda bombards us with messages attempting to steer us away from the safest and most effective treatments.”
