I discuss the news, including that the NYT ran an anti-free speech op-ed, signifying the left's hostility to free expression and the movement of that newspaper leftward. I also discuss why we can't talk to people we disagree with (I don't know why but everyone else seems to). I include three big ideas that might be relevant in ten years: 1) During the Kitchen Debate in 1959, Khrushchev told Nixon that the USA was good at making unneeded trinkets, but implied the Soviets did just fine at making necessary things. This revealed why they did not surpass the Americans as predicted by many on both sides of the Pacific. 2) Michael Crichton pointed out that his whole life, he was hounded by hysterias via the media. As David Brinkley said, "The one function TV news performs very well is that, when there is no news, we give it to you with the same emphasis as if there were." 3) In Douglas Murray's new book The Strange Death of Europe, he recounts how mass Islamic immigration has led London to be more "homophobic" than the UK as a whole. Attitudes that used to be associated with cities, under mass Islamic immigration, are mostly found in rural areas.
