The Education Wars Part IV
I am unable to join although I would like to. Agree writing stuff is not enough. am a physician and am constantly gauging who I can talk to. I am practicing different messages with people I sense are receptive. We need talking points.
Matthew, We must be able to find a better forum than Clubhouse. We need a platform that works on things other than phones, don't you think? They apparently have IOS and Android versions but no version that will run on a computer where many of us spend most of our time. Am I missing something? Thanks
Thank you for being part of this, Matthew! It's funny you reference McCullough and Kirsch. I was just telling my husband yesterday that I see them as unelected leaders in a movement right now and we are the messengers that need to disseminate this information. We are in a marathon to save our country, not a sprint. We will face road blocks and hurdles but I feel confident in the strength of our mission!!
Hi Mathew. I cannot participate in the Club House chat as I am in Europe, and it will be 2.30 in the morning for me. But I would love to participate in any initiatives you have. Background: I have an M.Sc.Eng. Applied Maths. I wrote my thesis in Neural Networks, but feel woefully ignorant on advanced statistics (but passed Stat 1 w. high grades and have tutored it many times). Focus of my studies were digital signal processing and neural networks. If you can use me in any way, let me know.
I'm in! I can help with econ, game theory, mechanism design, etc. Society currently has an "incentive compatibility problem" which can be flipped on its head to turn against The Elites™.
I REALLY like this. It will be 1.30 am for me but I'm going to try and come. I've been very concerned about the sense of helplessness expressed by people in my native Britain, and the passivity that's apparent in my adopted country of Portugal. I'm starting a very small activism group on another network. It's composed of very enlightened folk but even there is a reluctance to take action. Unless this ends in the next months there's a need for parallel structures and even if it does, we need to be ready for Next Time.
Hi. Same here the hour is impossible. Shame I’m on clubhouse all the time and I’m sure many people would love to hear you. I can maybe organize something for a morning hour ? ( were gmt +1)
A good idea that is running through some of these substacks. My only advice after part-taking in one is that everyone just wants to write. Look I love reading and writing but I really don't think that the people who we are trying to convince of these things are readers. They are certainly not going to read something that doesn't pop up through Apple, CNN, or FB/Meta news.
Most of the sheep have been brainwashed by the news, By video and the audio associated with it on massive repetition. We aren't going to change those minds with mere words. We have to show them. My New Year's Resolution is start making more videos.

I keep getting into exhausting debates with my colleagues.. Why are they exhausting? Because these folks are completely brainwashed. ”If stated on the CDC website it is true. Everything else is misinformation”. There must be proven methods to bring brainwashed people back to reality. Logic is not one of them.
I'm also in Europe and won't be able to attend but count me in for the resistance part! I would very much appreciate some tools/techniques for communicating any of this. I'm pulling my hair out (metaphorically for now at least) at the 'deer-in-the-headlights' looks I get from people when I try to raise awareness. Many thanks for all you are doing Matthew.
Clubhouse is phone-only app? Shame, tant pis, schade, (as we say in english, french, and german...) I guess I'm grateful it's not an 'Apple Watch only' app! :-)
Thanks so much for a wonderful meeting! I'm all in after finishing a (work in progress) manuscript.
I got the app on my phone but I'm not familiar with Clubhouse.
I’m reading Kennedy’s book and it turns my stomach! So much evil! And yes we should reject “The Science”. It’s anything but.
If I were available, I'd be there! Sadly, I won't be but please continue to post about this and I'll hope to attend the next one!
