Anyone who cares about the future of America as a place where citizens are free to protest the government needs to understand what just happened in Canada. Then they need to work to stop it from taking root here. Read @DavidSacks on Trudeau & truckers: bariweiss.substack.com/p/a-s…

In about 20 years (if there is anyone sane left in academia by then), someone will work out just how much damage was done by all the crazy campaigns of character assassination that followed the Great Awokening. The case described here is only one of many: bariweiss.substack.com/p/he-…

As an alum of the @WhiteheadInst I’m devastated by this story about David Sabatini, mTOR pioneer and one of the greatest cancer researchers in the world.
What those of us who know David know to be true. bariweiss.substack.com/p/he-…

The most chilling part, to me: The NIH retaliates against NYU dean Bar-Sagi for even thinking about hiring Sabatini. Government supported research has a big downside, it eliminates the safety valve of competition.
One scientist said the depiction of Sabatini's lab in the Whitehead report is "alternate reality," and the characterization of Sabatini as lascivious and retaliatory "deeply insane." Another said: "They have the wrong guy." bariweiss.substack.com/p/he-…

Here's what colleagues and trainees of David Sabatini told me about the culture in his lab: "a crucible where you became refined" "I fell in love with science" "a display of human achievement" "a culture of excellence" "rigorous" "people actually tried to help each other"

Everyone who read prior reporting on this tragic story and felt there might be important missing details, and questions re fairness and due process must read and consider this. @DrBenNeel has some wise and courageous responses below.
David Sabatini is one of the most important scientists in the country. So why is he on unemployment? This story is about far, far more than the destruction of one person: bariweiss.substack.com/p/he-…

I worked next door to David Sabatini’s lab. If you were in molecular biology / genetics you knew him & his work. The delta btw what was said privately vs publicly was stark. His cancelation is a great travesty to science & humanity. Well done @SnoozyWeiss bariweiss.substack.com/p/he-…

This is a tragedy. What happened to @DMSabatini makes a complete mockery of what sexual harassment is and is not. Kudos to @SnoozyWeiss and @bariweiss on this detailed breakdown of what happens when due process is thrown out the window. bariweiss.substack.com/p/he-…

A compelling and frightening account of a system designed to destroy people. Speak out for a colleague unfairly accused, and you will find yourself under investigation, too. bariweiss.substack.com/p/he-…

“It’s as if the best player in the NFL got cut because he said something politically incorrect on social media,” said @PeterAttiaMD. “In my opinion, he’s one of the top five scientists of his generation in my area,” said @DrBenNeel. bariweiss.substack.com/p/he-…

He wants to fund the police to clean up bad neighborhoods, incentivize development and a “tax peace” @ShellenbergerMD explains: “No increase/decrease until we end homelessness crisis, achieve school choice & energy/water/housing abundance” He has my vote bariweiss.substack.com/p/can…

This is indefensible. Shame on @Princeton.
