Finally had the chance to read this forceful and enlightening--if dispiriting--@anneapplebaum essay on the pull of power, fear of opposing it, and mystery of why some readily bend and others manage to resist. An eternal conundrum, now an American one, too. https://t.co/OvMtxievYK

A thought I keep having is that it’s BS that states opened up restaurants/bars/etc before they figured out how to open schools. It tell us everything we need to know about how this country constantly makes it as hard as possible to have kids and be a working parent.

Quoted @Abihabib

Updates to come: Citing national security concerns, India Bans Nearly 60 Chinese Apps, Including TikTok. The move is the latest after India and China's militaries clashed earlier this month https://t.co/ML0MNRlTmy
