@MaxAbrahms It’s crucial for the public to understand how foreign governments pay US-based think tanks to provide most of the expert commentary for the media, leading to factually inaccurate, dangerous foreign policy advocacy.https://twitter.com/ggreenwald/status/970283411750473728?s=21   Permalink 11:15 AM – 4 Mar 2018

@nntaleb Finalmente! Et complevit libri itinere! No more lecktchurs! Nunc autem scribo a reliquis duobus annis.

@nntaleb 2) Actually, Steven Pinker @sapinker is MISREPRESENTING the exchange. I merely asked for his email and the chance to discuss something by mail about his MS. He gave it to me and NO discussion of specifics took place. No wonder he has some difficulties with the truth. Permalink 11:39 AM – 1 Mar 2018

@nntaleb More evidence that Pinker @sapinker is a charlatan. I pointed out technical flaw: responds by shifting focus/demonizing the messenger. So far Pinker NEVER answered our querry.

@IbnKhaldune In the past, it was impossible to fight against bullies who bought ink by the truckload. Twitter has allowed you to now have your own “printing press” and to fight back just as hard. It’s glorious to watch them squirm. Permalink 7:02 AM – 27 Feb 2018

@Praxicle You are the authentic SITG entrepreneur of this generation. Thank you for everything I’ve learned from your books, distilled from courage via action & insight.

@nntaleb Journalists are used to people being terrorized by them, particularly those “powerful yet slaves”; they feel entitled to viciously smear those they can smear.
