So yesterday we had the most important TED talk you’ll ever watch, which ties in neatly with the book I’ve been plugging, Homo Deus: A Brief History of Tomorrow, both of which cry out to us — implicitly — to elect really smart, really competent, superbly thoughtful leaders.
Boy, did Putin ever knock us off that track.
But all most of us really care about, from minute to minute, is food and sex (perhaps I’m just speaking for myself?), and since you know I don’t eat — saves time, saves money, saves the planet, extends longevity, lessens the cruelty — I offer you today Andrew Sullivan’s take on the over-reaction to admittedly vile, in some cases criminal, behavior.
