Sam Harris has a good discussion on the impact of phones.  I don't like the tendency to moralize a medium.. to impart good/bad on a piece of equipment, but the devil's advocate role Harris plays provides a good back-and-forth to examine plusses and minusses.

I'm being swayed now.

Pretty interesting denigration of 'black politics' in this conversation.

Hunter Biden on his life, his horrible addiction...

I don't usually feel a lot of sympathy for addicts but I acknowledge their troubles.  And it seems like the Burisma job was legit.

Aside from that, another rich white guy who gets 1000 chances...

But you may like it.

Do rich black guys get fewer chances?
