I'm going to throw my own silent reading party in my bed by myself
An example of the worthwhile take-down of steven pinker:
"[Pinker] purports to be presenting hard science, but often his sources are works of popular advocacy, rather than original scientific studies. Over ten percent of the notes to his chapter on the environment cite Stewart Brand's 'Whole Earth Discipline', a polemical work by a highly successful entrepreneur and business consultant — and is not Pinker's only source of this kind"
Just finished reading:
Learning to Die: Wisdom in the Age of Climate Crisis | by Robert Bringhurst and Jan Zwicky
I found it to be individualistic to a fault.
I'd recommend 'Learning to Die in the Anthropocene: Reflections on the End of a Civilization' instead.
*IF* you are curious of what a neo-liberal take on the climate crisis would look like, it's a quick read.
I *WOULD* recommend the "Afterword" for a good demonstration of what a dishonest hack Steven Pinker is.

Well this is fun, you can liosten to wikipedia being edited:

Pitch changes according to the size of the edit; the larger the edit, the deeper the note.

No More Deaths, fuck the state Show more
"Trump administration prosecutors argued this week that members of the borderland faith-based organization No More Deaths broke the law by leaving jugs of water and cans of beans for migrants trekking through a remote wilderness refuge in the Sonoran Desert. The arguments came in the first of a series of high-profile federal trials in Tucson, Arizona, where humanitarian aid volunteers are facing prosecution under a litany of charges."
