@built right, but the actions needed were towards more regulation, not less (and actually enforcing regulations on the books) @built maybe not dismantled, but SEC seems to be in process of being de-fanged. Pretty much the same outcome....but the populists of 1890 were opposed to the gold standard, while the populists of today want a gold standard....Lots of familiar features in the 1890s including antisemetic, anti-globalisation populists.Reading about The Panic of 1893. It's a pretty fascinating read. The more things change, the more they stay the same @bodil the problem isn't just Trump, it's Trumpism. A lot of people voted for him - how do we change their minds?In case you missed the Trump speech: Country. Blood. Flag. Great. USA. Strong. God. Me. Me. Me. Me. Me. Me.

Retweeted by philtorThose who think we can fix the "fake news" problem with AI underestimate the depth our current epistemological crisis. @pacoid @deliprao The Fake News problem isn't solveable with a technological fix. There are deep cultural-philosophical divides. @wfaler And yet, even with all of their philosophical fracturing they were able to beat the Democrats.I have expertise on this matter. Push back on an FBI investigation of the White House is better known as a COVER UP:

Retweeted by philtor @grep I kinda figured if it had the Prime check it was sold by Amazon, but apparently not. @grep apparently a lot of things aren't "sold by Amazon" though it can be hard to tell. @grep no, it's good info even shows up on Amazon. Maybe I wasn't finding anything that was meeting the fine print. Tried several items.96 was the year we had the big flood. @grep @slickdeals I could not get this discount code to work.My cousin, a Nebraska-born Harvard grad, is being denied his flight back home from a business trip in Europe because of his Muslim name.

@built also something about Lenin not wanting to kick Assange out of the embassy. Maybe the opponent was promising to do so? @built not sure, but the name was interesting. @Learn_Things @tiffanyshlain very surprised that there's so much human intervention involved. @adropboxspace @tlockney and now that it's out in public they need to act like they give a crap.Exit polls suggest that @lenin has won a sweeping victory in Ecuador.Retweeting on the 75th anniversary of Japanese internment.
