From me this week: self-censorship and bad vibes
On Monday, I published a piece about the laziness that is the “cancel culture”/”self-censorship” genre of takes… along with a few ideas about how to fix it.
And then on Tuesday, I wrote about the big flood of COVID-19-related news, concerns about the wave hitting other parts of the world, and the fact that the federal government is basically out of funding for things like testing, treatment, and whatnot. So I guess we’re just supposed to hope for the best? Yay…
The Present Age is a reader-supported project. From now until the end of the month, I’m offering free 90 day trials to the premium-tier newsletter content. If you like it and think it’s worth paying for, that’s great. If you don’t think it’s worth paying for, just cancel the trial before the 90 days is up. Sound good? Click this link to get it:
No links this week. Hope everyone has a good weekend.
