Unregulated technology allows many, many ways for law enforcement *or* vigilantes to identify and hunt down women suspected of being pregnant. My new essay explains why avoiding this as an individual鈥攂y deleting apps or being careful鈥攚ill not be feasible. nytimes.com/2022/05/19/opini鈥

Ken Paxton has also been under indictment since the Obama administration, and hasn鈥檛 had to resign his high office or face trial. I can sorta understand how he鈥檚 concluded laws don鈥檛 apply to him.
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton is required by law to reveal the addresses of properties he owns to the state鈥檚 ethics board. Yet, he has refused to do it. Via @houstonchron. bit.ly/3LpA5wf

This is how social shaming works: tech people don鈥檛 want to work at Facebook in part because in their social circles they鈥檇 get judged. It also highlights immorality of neutrality, as think tanks take FB money. Have values. Stand up for them. Shame others who have bad values.
Replying to @doctorow
Facebook may find it easy to hire shills, but it's can't hire engineers. The company is increasingly turning into a tech ghost-ship, experiencing massive shortfalls in its recruiting goals. Apparently, coders have higher standards than "think tanks." protocol.com/workplace/faceb鈥 32/

It's absolutely wild that the thing that appears to have driven the world's two richest men into posting for clout is unionization.

The war on drugs brainwashed people so badly that now they're waking up to the fact that illegal and prescription drugs are the same thing & instead of going "oh, the issue must be how you use it not what you use" they decided to instead turn on people with legit prescribed needs
