“In this episode, Sam discusses some of the topics he has and hasn’t covered, to the disappointment of many Making Sense listeners.

Released: January 10, 2022”

While I agree…YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, etc, need to be consistent in the enforcement of their terms of service, and it’s infuriating that they openly treat people vastly different…I do not agree that anyone should be automatically, or permanently, banned from a service that is otherwise fully open to the masses.

If these platforms are going to play the legal role of a publisher…then when are they going to accept all that comes with it? They should not be getting the protections that they get. Those protections come with the understanding, that they are allowing people of every race, orientation, political leaning and human experience, to participate…Why would these protections even exist, otherwise?

At the very least…anyone for whom action has been taken against, should have at least done something to warrant the consequence.

At present…these platforms will even inflict the most extreme consequence they can, based upon immutable, biological traits…and it’s disgusting and unspeakable corruption of the worst form.

I can wrap my mind around Trump or Jones being temporarily banned, for explicit certain things they actually did…But I see it as dead wrong, that these platforms provide no path to returning…They’re intentionally alienating people, cutting off a path of communication [which for many people, is their main form of public interaction], and singling people out for exclusion [even when they’ve done nothing wrong, immoral or unethical]…

These forums are not only isolating people, they’re also turning themselves into an echo chamber…and let me tell you…there are a lot of extremists still on these platforms…They’re just extremists pushing dehumanization towards socially “acceptable” targets.

These platforms intentionally harbor content, which is supposed to be against their terms of service…Yet they’ll banish some people based upon pure prejudice.

“MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell went even further off the deep end during an interview on Real America’s Voice this week when he said that he has enough evidence to lock up at least 300 million Americans for voter fraud – and that the evidence was so great it would result in life sentences. The man does not appear to be well at all, and it is way beyond time for someone to step in and get him the mental help that he desperately needs. Farron Cousins explains what’s happening.

“The pendulum continues to swing back to center. Disney has NOT cancelled Letitia Wright or Tim Allen, despite repeated attempts by Twitter and the media to have both openly conservative actors ousted. In fact, a new Disney Plus series with Tim Allen was just announced today. Is Hollywood finally starting to wake up from the wokeness?”

“The pendulum might be swinging. Workers in Hollywood are getting fed up with ‘wokeness’ and mandates, and are speaking out about how it’s speeding up the decline of the entertainment industry. Meanwhile, Ricky Gervais dunks on Hollywood celebrities yet again, pointing out that the general public is over celebrity virtue-signaling.”

Gatekeep Fandom HARDER?…

“A recent Forbes article seems to be defending “gatekeeping” in fandom. Gatekeeping from whom? Bad actors who simply want to come into a fandom to take over, and who cry about “gatekeeping” when they get called out for it.”

These same tactics have been used against law abiding MAPs…

…The people behind this behavior are sick in the head…They need to be restrained…probably banned from much of the internet…and have some sort of social worker keeping tabs on them…Some should literally be institutionalized.

…There is something horribly wrong with them.

Michael Pollan: Why are we so attracted to psychoactive plants?…

“Caffeine, morphine, mescaline – why do humans go to such lengths to seek mind-altering shifts in consciousness? Bestselling author Michael Pollan came to Intelligence Squared to examine our complex attitude towards naturally psychoactive plant substances. He asks, why do we categorise these compounds so reductively – calling them either a licit or an illicit drug? In taking them, aren’t we engaging with nature in one of the most profound ways possible?

In conversation with the medical doctor and broadcaster Guddi Singh, Pollan explores humanity’s longstanding and powerful attraction to psychoactive plants.”
