There’s lots of Legislative decisions Congress can make to make our lives safer. Extensive background checks, physical and psychological evaluations, Red Flag Laws, automated data base for gun owners ( If you drive a car, boat or plane, we’re registered and carry liability insurance) and ban the sale of automatic weapons and large magazines. Automatic weapons used in mass shootings are used to fight wars. Why should Americans fear for their lives? Why should we be the only Nation with 45, 000 lives lost to gun violence?
I wish I could state, Tesla’s construction site in Austin, Texas, is an outlying case of labor abuse, it isn’t.

Yes, it’s tied to China and there’s censorship of videos on “ banned subjects”, like Ukraine or the Uyghurs , it’s the algorithm that promotes content. The For You Page, uses an algorithm that aggregates all personal data and pushes videos toward an individual, intensifying their experience and in some cases, causes emotional harm and violence. Don’t single out TikTok, all the Social Media Platforms are aggregating our data, predicting our behavior and selling our behavioral patterns to third parties. We have no privacy. We may not want a corporation to decide what we see and what we choose. Nor do we want our data to go to Human resources, or insurance or credit agencies. How will the new Law, going through Congress, curtail the use of our data and behavior? How will the new Law Change Section 230 of the Communication decency act, allowing us to sue the platforms, if we’re harmed? Who will regulate the algorithms to stop the hatred, the incitement to violence, the self harm and mental confusion caused by the algorithms? What Law will stop the Harmful amplification of violent and abusive data? The algorithms either must be transparent for regulation to a standard or there must be enough sampling of data to enforce a change in the algorithms? Society is not safe with an unregulated Technology systems, that is not understood. How many people realize all their news is curated for them all the time? these silos of data, create a wedge in our Society polarizing our thoughts through algorithms design.

Yet, big money supporting and promoting violence, insurrection, anti VAX’s &anti climate deniers are powered by money and an army of followers, making millions for themselves and the Platforms. Who will create a more neutral system?

BMI does not account for differences in body types across race and gender, yet it is “weaponized”, Tovar said, to marginalize people – disproportionately Black women – whose bodies don’t … More TheVoiceOfJoyce Why are scientists wasting time studying a person’s body weight in order to conclude there’s a correlation between body weight and our Carbon footprint. It’s absurd. Rather then weaponizing peoples food choices and body types, scientific time would be better spent devising methodologies to remove toxins from our water and food and creating a substitute for King Corn. Marginalized people, people requiring inexpensive food, need nutritious food not cheap processed food laced with non nutritious ingredients. Give poor people and the middle classes inexpensive vegetables and fruits and they’ll change their diet. Meanwhile, fight climate change on a large scale, focus on agriculture and bringing back heritage grains.
