  1. Want to share an interesting book-length essay too. Was reading

    and the blogger mentioned

    [from wiki] “From Dictatorship to Democracy, A Conceptual Framework for Liberation is a book-length essay on the generic problem of how to destroy a dictatorship and to prevent the rise of a new one. The book was written in 1993 by Gene Sharp (1928-2018), a professor of political science at the University of Massachusetts. The book has been published in many countries worldwide and translated into more than 30 languages. […] The book has been circulated worldwide and cited repeatedly as influencing movements such as the Arab Spring of 2010–2012. “

  2. Article for you:

    https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2019/09/28/us/child-sex-abuse.html

    “The Times found that there was a close relationship between the center and Silicon Valley that raised questions about good governance practices. For example, the center receives both money and in-kind donations from tech companies, while employees of the same companies are sometimes members of its board. Google alone has donated nearly $4 million in the past decade, according to public testimony.

    A spokeswoman for the center said it was common to expect corporations to provide financial assistance to charities. But the practice, others working in the area of child protection say, could elevate the interests of the tech companies above the children’s.”

    1. “The Times found that”

      the rich and powerful are corrupt, sick, and perverted muttherfukkers who should not be in charge of a dogfight because that’s too morally elevated for their deranged sensibilities?

      What else is new?
