@harari_yuval on the surprisingly low price tag on preventing climate disaster
Yuval Levin joins the @Commentary podcast to talk about the Biden trip to Georgia to promote “voting rights”—and how the ideas promulgated by Democrats are both non-starters and have the effect of delegitimizing…Biden’s own victory in 2020! Tune in:
"The most intense concerns about election administration on both the left and the right increasingly involve not voting itself but what happens after the voting is done," writes Yuval Levin.
"Our debates about election reform this past year have been misdirected in ways that have rendered them more divisive than they have to be," writes Yuval Levin.
"All of us saw just a year ago that Congress’s role in certifying presidential elections could be clarified and rid of opportunities for confusion and mischief," writes Yuval Levin.
Rashida Jones and I talked to Yuval Noah Harari about COVID conspiracy theories, the role social media plays in spreading misinformation, and the one lie I choose to believe even though I know it’s not always true:
A clarifying call from Yuval. “In this time of crisis, we face two particularly important choices. The first is between totalitarian surveillance and citizen empowerment. The second is between nationalist isolation and global solidarity.”
When Yuval Levin stops being polite, and starts getting real. Worth the read.
"It's coming back to haunt us because, in this moment of crisis, we need this kind of trust." Author Yuval Noah Harari says "over the last few years irresponsible politicians have undermined the trust in the public in science, in experts, in the information that they receive."
