The algorithms are either stupid or ignorant or both. Even here on Medium. Medium recommends to me stories I have already read. Other sites offer me products I already purchased. I mean things I only need one of. They repeatedly offer me stories, click bait, that I have ignored a hundred times.

This business model is doomed.

The lines on the map mean less than most people think. I have been following some back-and-forth criticism and support for the state of Maine. Most of the authors talk about Portland and south coastal Maine. That is really just Boston, extended. I have lived there and have lived in real Maine. They are different and there is not line on the map that defines the limits of Boston and where real Maine starts. Yeah, real Maine sucks unless you live there. It is just a different way of life. Few citified Yankees are going to get it and certainly nobody else from away will get it (well maybe some Alaskans). I moved away when I became an adult, but I understand the tradeoff. I am never sure I made the right choice.

It seems everything is getting more fragile. Like a house of cards. Very little is robust, stout, built to last. Just in time manufacturing. Interconnected supply chains. We design things with less than 10% margin against structural failure.

The elegance of fragile designs is attractive, but I don’t like living…

Is not clear what kind of leadership you are talking about.

"These three indicators of voting equity, policing equity, and gender equity form three-pointed strategies to return the United States of America to its historical position of leadership."

Certainly neither of the other two world powers demonstrate those equities. They are not essential for being a leading power. Achieving them would put us in a better position as a Moral Leader but compared to Russia and China it is clear we exceed them in voting equity, policing equity, and gender equity. Please name the powerful countries that have greater voting equity, policing equity, and gender equity than the U.S.A.
