The thing I'm most appalled by with regards to this pandemic is that oligarchs took away our agency and stole our ability to protect ourselves from a deadly virus.

I don't understand how people on the ground who personally commit atrocities under a flag can come home and just live a full life like a normal person.

@mentallyalex It's funny you say that about learning. In relation to this, I was just thinking about how there are some things I don't want to understand.

@mentallyalex Yep. I get it. Always remember that while outside the box can be lonely sometimes, it's the freest space that exists. Live in it well.

Thank the gods fentanyl didn't exist when I was young. Cocaine was prevalent and that would have been a giant disaster waiting to happen.

I find it offensive when white people say "this is how you make terrorists" when talking about Israel's genocide of the Palestinian people.

'The DSI and the IDI, with support from the 11th Hour Project, launched a new tool called PalmWatch on Feb. 22. Using rigorous data science and advanced, low-cost data visualization methods, PalmWatch traces palm oil supplies from the ground level, where the environmental and social impacts of palm oil cultivation occur, to the consumer brands that use the oil in their products.'

@justafrog Same. We're forced to know about people because they want us to, not because we should.
