The founders of @uaustinorg believe free speech is being stifled on campuses across America and they want to fix it. But is that true? And if it is, could this new university actually make a difference? That’s today’s debate on The Argument.  https://t.co/gPBokVIeBp

On today’s episode of The Argument, @janecoaston, @glukianoff and @mcopelov debate the merits and mission of the new university @uaustinorg and its supposed commitment to “freedom of inquiry, freedom of conscience, and civil discourse.” https://t.co/OuSplevHjF

“If it succeeds,” @mcopelov says of @uaustinorg on today’s episode of The Argument, “it’s going to take a lot of time and resources and money and it will have to become what existing universities already are.”  https://t.co/vFWhM3GqZA

.@tmorello is famous for his activism, but his mother “remains the most radical and the most popular member of the Morello family.” https://t.co/oQA8ZZ1WCX

Today, the head of Instagram is testifying before a senate committee about its effects on the mental health of its youngest users. Last month, we published a video arguing the app's safety measures aren’t nearly as effective as the company claims. https://t.co/ukSyrBpn0y

The press needs “to tell the truth about populism’s flaws and failings” while convincing skeptical readers that it can “be trusted to describe reality in full,” says @DouthatNYT. https://t.co/XVIqL5gNQZ

“A growing anti-vaccine movement that, headed by previously regime-friendly figures, is stirring up trouble,” writes @Alexey__Kovalev. “It’s not clear that Mr. Putin, usually adept at quashing sentiments not to his liking, can do much about it.” https://t.co/VPnjoePvjA

“There’s something counterproductive about the way contemporary race matters are caveated and couched in questions that so often lead to more questions, rather than to consensus,” writes @JohnHMcWhorter. https://t.co/lscUTO3bMs

The head of Instagram will testify before the senate today on how the app impacts the metal health of its youngest users. But are its safety measures really working? We spoke with social media’s youngest fans to see what they have to say. https://t.co/hPp81IPaHP

“The radicalized G.O.P. is the main anti-democratic force,” Theda Skocpol says. “Trump plays a crucial threatening role, but I think things have now moved to the point that many Republican Party officials and elected officeholders are self-starters.” https://t.co/qu0r1OlRJO

“A vaccine mandate is the only way to break the endless cycle of surging infections that in turn push hospitals to the brink,” writes @DrRobDavidson. https://t.co/zxTVTB3FAK

“Politicians and public figures who discourage responsible behavior — getting vaccinated — are deluded or self-serving, pandering to a significant minority that stands in the way of the human community. We should blame them.” #NYTLetters https://t.co/1qMj2hbMos

A tragic & personal MUST read from my friend ⁦⁦@DrRobDavidson⁩ ⁦⁦@nytopinion⁩ Vaccine misinformation leading to vaccine hesitancy, ⬆️ deaths & traumatized nurses/doctors. Michigan’s healthcare system teetering on the “edge of collapse” https://t.co/2Vz4ptbaED

"Other than widespread vaccination, no silver bullet exists to end the pandemic, rapid at-home antigen tests included. But plentiful free tests could help keep schools and businesses open at full capacity more easily." @aaronecarroll https://t.co/3ndJb931Oi

The year America lost its democracy. Here’s my @nytopinion on the scariest news of 2021: voting limits, elections under partisan officials, the unraveling of democracy in the US. If this happened elsewhere we’d be alarmed. Dems in congress … aren’t https://t.co/TAKA0xHHzK

I wrote for @nytopinion about how inventing the gun and then shooting ourselves in the foot with it, over and over again, is Russia's national sport, exemplified in the Kremlin's handling of the pandemic. Tl;dr we're all screwed. https://t.co/fI7p3fNnu6

Universities! Speech! I make two football jokes in the introduction! I also note that I don't care about Yale! It's a new episode of The Argument! https://t.co/RmludRud4E

Theda Skocpol from Harvard. How many times and from how many places do Democrats need to hear this? https://t.co/bXHuqquwms

Michigan E.R. Doc: With every shift, I see the strain people sick with Covid-19 put on my hospital. Their choice to not get vaccinated is not personal. It postpones surgeries for countless other people and burns out doctors and nurses. https://t.co/uAG91DgQua

“A deadly virus can’t be ignored, jailed, exiled or co-opted — nor can it be locked down without great economic cost. That puts Vladimir Putin in a bind. The pandemic, perhaps his hardiest foe to date, has starkly revealed the limits of his power”. https://t.co/2m3G9qGBYW

Incredible interview w/ @aijenpoo, a leading advocate for fundamentally changing America's care infrastructure. She details our #carecrisis, the obstacles families face, and our opportunity to solve it. ⬇️ @domesticworkers @caringacrossgen #CareCantWait https://t.co/CgoMy8bs4m

Today's episode of The Ezra Klein Show with guest host @hmcghee and @aijenpoo is so good and so important. Care (child, elder, etc) is infrastructure and we need to invest in it. It is the work that makes all other work possible. https://t.co/OuvLVQcVgb
