“There are times in life when you are faced with a variety of choices, none of which you consider right. All of them harm someone and you have to choose the one that harms the fewest number of people. That still leaves you harming someone, and, because of that, I think of Manning on a daily basis.”

The customer is rated

What annoys you about modern life? How it is round the wrong way. Like, I wait with my son for an Uber. He says: “We have to walk to the car, he’s not gonna wait for us”. And I say: “I’m not walking to the cab! The cab comes to us!” But he wants us to go because the customer is rated. The customer is rated? Excuse me! The world is inside out and upside down! And my son is like: “Mom, mom, mom, please just walk to the cab.” And I say: “No.”

Witch hunt

"Papadoupolos pleads guilty. Flynn pleads guilty. Gates pleads guilty. Manafort faces new charges. 13 Russians face new charges.
Good thing it’s all a hoax and a witch hunt."

"The noose is tightening."
..."They've been playing with that noose too long. They might hang themselves with it."

“Equanimity (Latin: æquanimitas having an even mind; aequus even animus mind/soul) is a state of psychological stability and composure which is undisturbed by experience of or exposure to emotions, pain, or other phenomena that may cause others to lose the balance of their mind. The virtue and value of equanimity is extolled and advocated by a number of major religions and ancient philosophies.”

No Housing Problem

It's a distraction from the underlying crisis: 82% of 2017's wealth went to the richest 1%.

It's pretty hard to house 99% of the population on only 18%.

Identity and Relationships

"All landed property descended in the female line, from mother to daughter, on the assumption, perhaps, that maternity is a matter of fact, paternity a matter of opinion," Watterson states.


Maybe more precisely, in terms of digital identity, paternity is a matter of “Claim Authority”.
