Newly unearthed documents reveal that top U.S. health officials worked hand-in-hand with big tech companies to moderate content related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Of course, the term “colonization,” very popular in the realm of critical studies, makes it all sound much more dramatic.
“[M]ost rich white countries, including Australia, are doing little to properly address this inequity,” Fitz-Henry writes. “For the most part, they refuse to accept the climate debt they owe to poorer countries and communities […] this injustice – a type of ‘atmospheric colonization’ – is a form of deeply entrenched colonial racism that arguably represents the most pressing global equity issue of our time.”
Fitz-Henry says a global temperature increase of two degrees Celsius would threaten over 50 percent of Africa with “undernourishment” — despite the continent contributing very little to global warming.
A few days ago, I penned an irritated tweet in response to one of the latest happenings on the increasingly heated culture war front in response to the decision of an actress (actor) namedEllen (Elliot) Page. I am employing this awkward and impossible multiple-naming style because it is now apparently mandatory — and probably doing it wrong, nonetheless, as “you’re doing it wrong” is the whole point of what has been made mandatory — but also to make a point.
I have essentially beenbanned from Twitteras a consequence. I say banned, although technicallyI have been suspended. But the suspension will not be lifted unless I delete the “hateful”tweetin question, and I would rather die than do that. And hopefully it will not come to that, although who the hell knows in these increasingly strange days?
