On cash reparation

It will be a tragedy simply using money to pay out the injustice over hundred of years in USA on black and red Americans
Reparation with cash as proposed here will only temporarily close wealth gap and ultimately reopen the gap if we don’t provide equality in education and health care. It would be much more productive by erasing economic inequality associated at birth in low income households with a government backed differential Baby Fund to assure equality at entering the society

Boring inculcation podcast

I am ok with the hard left bias, but the topics are no longer interesting and are just regurgitated left wing talking points. These may be good ideas, but they aren’t worth spreading because they are already out there. Also, they are trying too hard with the diversity and have overshot and it’s a bit awkward when they pass over the obvious expert in a field just to pander to identity politics.
