Personally I think I like Cohen's actual version better anyway: Mythmaking, social media and the truth about Leonard Cohen’s last letter to Marianne Ihlen http://theconversation.com/mythmaking-social-media-and-the-truth-about-leonard-cohens-last-letter-to-marianne-ihlen-108082
MS Edge is moving to #Chromium engine. Microsoft is finally going to develop an open source browser - or at least as open source as Google does.
This is essentially a bet that the browser engine wars are over. If that's right, the only way to influence web and de facto standards is to have a seat at the chromium table.
I'm not going to meet anyone halfway when we're talking about ideas that harm people in real and lasting ways.
There is no space for compromise when taking about systems and beliefs that advocate mass harm as a reasonable solution.
To quote Kwame Toure "In order for nonviolence to work, your opponent must have a conscience."
There is no such thing as dealing 'fairly' with people that have beliefs that result in your death.
And if you believe there is, you're complicit with such evil.
I do my best to find common ground w/ people because I prefer to be able to find where we can relate. It's my thing.
But if we can't agree cops killing unarmed children is wrong or that free speech isn't the same thing is hate speech or there is no place in modern society for a culture that wants to remove people from the planet as a solution, then something is wrong w/ you.
Different beliefs are fine, but there is such a thing as evil in the world.
Everything does not deserve consideration.
Interesting that they left out the biggest cause of death – people driving cars and other motor vehicles: “Chart of the day: You're probably not afraid of Australia's deadliest animals” https://www.abc.net.au/news/2018-11-27/sharks-snakes-crocodiles-horses-australias-most-dangerous/10534786
