Emerson on Individual Integrity and Resisting the Tyranny of the Masses – Brain Pickings
Leave this hypocritical prating about the masses. Masses are rude, lame, unmade, pernicious in their demands and influence, and need not to be flattered but to be schooled. I wish not to concede anything to them, but to tame, drill, divide, and break them up, and draw individuals out of them… Masses! the calamity is the masses. I do not wish any mass at all, but honest men only, lovely, sweet, accomplished women only, and no shovel-handed, narrow-brained, gin-drinking million stockingers or lazzaroni at all. If government knew how, I should like to see it check, not multiply the population. When it reaches its true law of action, every man that is born will be hailed as essential. Away with this hurrah of masses, and let us have the considerate vote of single men spoken on their honor and their conscience.

6 things I wish I knew about state management when I started writing React apps
The frontend “knows” a lot of things, and these things interact with each other in non-trivial ways. So in my view, state management is the core problem when developing a UI. Here are some things I wish I knew about state management earlier.

Soviet propaganda and Shakespeare

Such approach was theorized in the works of the top Communist leaders, including V.

The psychological phenomena described below mostly pertain to those supporters who would follow Trump off a cliff. These are the people who will stand by his side no matter what scandals come to light, or what sort of evidence for immoral and illegal behavior surfaces.

David Brooks: The Nuclear Family Was a Mistake - The Atlantic
If you want to summarize the changes in family structure over the past century, the truest thing to say is this: We’ve made life freer for individuals and more unstable for families. We’ve made life better for adults but worse for children. We’ve moved from big, interconnected, and extended families, which helped protect the most vulnerable people in society from the shocks of life, to smaller, detached nuclear families (a married couple and their children), which give the most privileged people in society room to maximize their talents and expand their options. The shift from bigger and interconnected extended families to smaller and detached nuclear families ultimately led to a familial system that liberates the rich and ravages the working-class and the poor.

How Narcissists Wear Out Their Welcome - The Atlantic
“I am the chosen one,” Trump told reporters in August, in response to questions about obtaining a trade deal with China. In claiming this almost superhuman status, Trump may somewhat inoculate himself against critical press. His supporters adore him as something like a larger-than-life force, a beautiful persona reflected in the pool. Should they encounter new negative information about the president, they may judge it against the “evidence” of their acquaintance with the president’s persona—and discount it. The contrast is simply too great between what the “fake news” claims, and the infallible presence onscreen.

Construct a Stateful Monad from @evilsoft on @eggheadio
We define the State datatype and take a peek into its inner working. By manually constructing an instance, we’ll start to get a feel on how the type separates state management from our stateful computations. As State depends on a Pair type, we get to know how each portion can be extracted through the fst and snd Pair instance methods.

Rick Wilson drops the mic in ferocious attack on cowardly Republicans for unleashing ‘monster’ Trump on US – Raw Story
Yes, Trump is all of these things and Republicans fear and obey him. But what Wilson ignores is that a significant segment of the American people brought this orange monster to life, revel in his thuggish and vile behavior, and delight in the knowledge that they are the ones who make Trump’s grotesque power possible! Trump is their monster!

“Using Trump’s two Thursday speeches — which Wilson described as indicative of “Trump’s usual mental frailty, verbal dysentery, pathological mendacity, tertiary syphilis, amphetamine addiction, and brain worms’ — as a jumping-off point, the columnist began, “The recently acquitted and utterly guilty president of the United States, King Donald the Malevolent, let his rage, manias, and petty vengeances out to play, bellowing like a third-world warlord in a display of political performance art that was almost unbearably grotesque in its affront to American values, the law, and our collective sanity.””

Opinion | In Private, Republicans Admit They Acquitted Trump Out of Fear - The New York Times
For the stay-in-office-at-all-cost representatives and senators, fear is the motivator. They are afraid that Mr. Trump might give them a nickname like “Low Energy Jeb” and “Lyin’ Ted,” or that he might tweet about their disloyalty. Or — worst of all — that he might come to their state to campaign against them in the Republican primary. They worry:

“Will the hosts on Fox attack me?”

“Will the mouthpieces on talk radio go after me?”

“Will the Twitter trolls turn their followers against me?”

Moi, the iron-fisted leader who was loved and feared in equal measure » Capital News
Politically astute, he was also accused of encouraging ethnic divisions to further his own political ambitions, tribal rivalries that would leave thousands dead in later years, including contested elections in 2007.

“Ordinary citizens found themselves the target of state repression, and torture and imprisonment became part of the regular engagement between rulers and ruled,” Daniel Branch, from Britain’s University of Warwick, wrote in his book on Kenya’s post-independence politics.

But Moi was also credited with helming a relatively peaceful nation in a region mired by bloody conflicts, including genocide in Rwanda and civil wars in Burundi and Somalia.

February 4th 2020: The Economist this week

Our cover this week looks at how Narendra Modi and the BJP are sowing division in India. Last month they changed the law to make it easier for adherents of all the subcontinent’s religions, except Islam, to acquire citizenship. At the same time, they want to compile a register of all India’s 1.3bn citizens. Those sound like technicalities, but many of the country’s 200m Muslims do not have the papers to prove they are Indian, so they risk being made stateless. Ominously, the government has ordered the building of camps to detain those caught in the net. The scheme looks like the most ambitious step yet in a decades-long project of incitement against Muslims. That is electoral nectar for the BJP, but political poison for India. By undermining the secular principles of the constitution, Mr Modi’s latest initiatives threaten to do damage to democracy. They also risk spilling innocent blood.
