I appreciated this as a way to hopefully wake up people about invasive tracking: https://stealingurfeelin.gs/
(it's a public awareness video that does live tracking to demonstrate it to you)
If you say "I'll measure all the things, then look for patterns" I promise that you'll find them. But it doesn't mean they mean anything. In a big enough data set, some patterns will exist from random chance, no matter how unlikely.
Also don't judge the working class for the education capitalism gave them or by the standards a privileged education may have given you. Everyone is capable of and deserving of self realization. You don't know what people are actually like until they've had that opportunity
I say that because I have a recurring experience where if I *only* say: this social justice activist, I agree with them completely. Period. People assume I also am in lockstep with a certain social-justice groupthink echo-chamber.
And if I say I disagree with the "woke" groupthink echo-chamber, people assume I agree with the opposite side that defends patriarchy and capitalism.
The black-and-white / us-vs-them / polarized perspectives are dead-ends, and I'm not going to take those paths.
Dr. Kyra Gaunt; wonderful discussion; & I agree with *everything* she says.
Incidentally, I disagree with a lot of the tactics and philosophy of much of the "woke" aspects of activists who otherwise join me in agreement with Dr. Gaunt.
There *is* a reasonable place for *agreeing* with all the anti-racist, anti-capitalist, anti-patriarchy views while disagreeing with misguided tactics (a topic too complex for this toot).
