Why are we forced to trust this company, so careless with our privacy and security, with our financial livelihood?

Fast forward to 21:12 and watch Fareed Zakaria on CNN advocate slowing the deployment of 5g because it would make the internet faster and aid in Chinese spying. Mind blown.

Does anyone have a link to some reputable research that shows DIET soft drinks are unhealthy through causality?

Spudnuts uses a sweeter crispy glaze while Dunkin has a more pronounced kind of synthetic blueberry flavor.

Listening to people should include focusing on the most important facts and working to find the core of what that person is trying to tell us.

I get turned off from arguments that include facts about how much money a subject has but don't tie that to the rest of the argument, thereby asserting wealth is inherently evil.
