You can give a man a fish and THEN teach him to fish, you know. And it's a lot easier to learn how to fish when you're not starving.— He is Lore (@loresjoberg) August 6, 2020

Steven Soderbergh posted a black and white "no dialogue" cut of Raiders of the Lost Ark as a way to study framing, composition, and editing, and it's... perfect? https://t.co/gAC3pCOmW7
About the same time, I heard a visiting lecturer, an anthropologist, use a term I was unfamiliar with: multinational corporations. She used it as the answer to: What would nonhuman aliens regard as Earth’s dominant life form?— William Gibson (@GreatDismal) July 29, 2020

I still think about the kid who said that Fight Club is a bizarre movie to understand here in 2020 because it's about a bunch of white cishet men who are mad that they have jobs and can afford to shop at IKEA.— Kameron Hurley (@KameronHurley) July 20, 2020

The GOP argument in America, right now, is that state-sanctioned violence against people does not justify violence against property, but violence against property absolutely justifies state-sanctioned violence against people.

We are never going to get “back to normal.” Recovery from the immediate disaster will take long enough that the ordinary pressures of history will transform the world into something new. Longing for the world of January 2020 is as pointless as wanting to bring back the 1950s.— David D. Levine (@daviddlevine) July 15, 2020

America stopped being able to differentiate between "Freedom" and "you're not the boss of me" and that's why we can't get any sense of national unity on something as unifying as fighting a pandemic.— Nash Across the 8th Dimension (@Nash076) July 4, 2020
something I personally think is nuts is that the field of criminology produced a ton of research in the 80s and 90s showing that anti-violence social norms are the most potent form of crime control -- community self regulation -- but criminology remains focused on police/prisons— jon ben-menachem (@jbenmenachem) July 3, 2020

Guys, you know what? Fuck your old racist statue. Also, learn the difference between history, and monuments. We can remember our sometimes shameful history without raising monuments to it. Casting down the monuments does not erase history, but it helps end the mythologizing.— James S.A. Corey (@JamesSACorey) June 20, 2020
Writers deserve to be paid for our labor. We can choose to waive that, or partially waive it, by offering up our work for free when we want to.— Annalee (@LeeFlower) June 13, 2020
Making that decision for us and asking people to pay YOU for our work instead isn't revolutionary. It's just, you know, stealing.

Meaningful police reform isn’t more coffee-with-cop photo ops. It’s not more attendance at the bi-monthly neighborhood watch meeting. It’s not school assemblies. It’s not.— Patrick Skinner (@SkinnerPm) June 9, 2020
Reform is imagining the end of a war, this war on our neighbors. And then changing. Changing it all.
Policing is not preventative. We can’t expect police to prevent violence. We can’t expect them to be mental health professionals. We can’t expect them to be social workers or addiction counselors. We can’t defund everything else and expect them to fill in the blanks.— josie duffy rice (@jduffyrice) June 6, 2020
I think there are people who don't see Trump as fascist largely because he's a buffoon, and fascists are supposed to at least be good at what they do. But, a guy who can't tie his shoes can still put his boot on your neck.— Zach Weinersmith (@ZachWeiner) June 3, 2020
Historian here. A head of state using a standing army to occupy an American city, compel citizens off the street, stifle free expression and assembly—using paramilitary forces to smoke clergy out of their churches at the head of state’s whim—is pretty much the founders’ nightmare— Joshua Zeitz (@JoshuaMZeitz) June 3, 2020
For anyone worried about talking to their white children right now—worried that their kid is too young for these conversations—I was 5 or 6 when my Dad told me “no matter what you do, some people will always hate you.” Black children don’t get to not understand racism.— Tawny Newsome (@TrondyNewman) June 2, 2020
There's a reason you separate military and the police. One fights the enemies of the state, the other serves and protects the people. When the military becomes both, then the enemies of the state tend to become the people. Admiral William Adama— Edward James Olmos (@edwardjolmos) June 2, 2020

A funny observation is that everyone think that pricing a product as high as you can get away with is fair (ie. value you create, not cost) but same people consider that fair salary should be tied to cost of living (ie. cost, not value you create).

Anyone will “sell out” for the right price. Don’t kid yourself. If you’re upset no one has asked you to sell out that is a separate issue. But also people conveniently redefine selling out as anything they don’t like, don’t want to do, can’t do, and/or wish they could do.— roxane gay (@rgay) May 9, 2020
The idea making art that is also commercial is selling out and somehow that is the only art that is not is pure in a spiritual sense is...well, nonsense.
