Proud of #Spain. Might be the diet, but I doubt it—chorizo, fried foods, and late dinners don't seem that healthy. It's more likely a strong public health system. And let's not underestimate human warmth and friendliness. https://t.co/YvZrqeMeAp

So the same white feminists who swore to rid the world of the unpunished Black rapists like Cosby, silenced accusers to protect white rapists like Weinstein from #METOO..you cannot make this stuff up in America.https://t.co/Q4Ial9tffp

I’m saying that the 2016 referendum was so tainted by illegality that its result is illegitimate. People up and down the country are saying it. And I think they need to be heard.

It is confusing to be a humanities professor. Am I an authoritarian neo-Marxist destroying Western Civilization or a fuzzy-thinking relativist destroying Western Civilization? I need to know before I teach Kant again.

This is Harry's ban notice.

He was banned, not for the tweet that we thought, but for objecting to McKinnon posting a gif of a skeleton dancing on a grave hours after Magdalen died.

McKinnon remains unbanned.

I am disgusted. pic.twitter.com/WoJGkMs8a1

Crazy good philosophy teaching resource alert:

The thread I started on "philosophical films" for teaching went crazy. Then @douglas_young turned it all into a public Google Sheet, and added a space to suggest reading pairings. Use it! Add more ideas!https://t.co/fX2eL06TZl
