Random notes.

The riots were never about a police killing, and the lockdowns were never about a virus.
Institutions and their petty rules are the refuge of the emotionally immature and the mentally unstable. Such people look to bureaucracies for the validation they are unable or unwilling to find in healthy human relationships and community.
The filter. We all have an information filter in our brain that acts like the spam filter in your email program. Its purpose is to filter out junk information so that your processor doesn't get overwhelmed. What looks like junk, gets ignored. It is the reason we screen out noise like the crazy guy ranting on the street corner. And thank G-d it's there, because we wouldn't be able to function without it. But like the spam filter in your inbox, you have to check it once in a while, because its algorithm is not infallible. You have to update your assumptions about what's reliable and what's junk; otherwise you could miss important information.
Time is an economic good: a scarce commodity with alternative uses. Use it wisely.
Your body is made of bones and flesh; a robust system includes a rigid component and a flexible component.
Establish good habits - it's easier than breaking bad ones.
They say history is written by the victors. I say history is written by people who can write.
