Welcome to Weekend Links for March 20-21, 2021!
This weekend may be a very auspicious weekend, or maybe the date just looks cool! Either way, we hope you had a good week and we are very happy to have you here.
Have fun browsing the links, and we are all about courteous disagreement here at Casa de EZFKA.
Another little experiment I’m trying is having a though provoking video up top. This week it is from Doctor Ramani, a clinical psychiatrist / YouTuber who makes videos about Narcissism.
Let me know what you guys think about this format!
As always, enjoy the weekend links and enjoy the discussion. Cheers 🙂
Politics and Governance
So what we look for with links is thought provoking stuff. Generally overdone, somewhat hyperbolic, but bringing out good alternative thinking. Also videos sometimes.
- https://sputniknews.com/us/202103141082335249-meghan-markle-reportedly-considers-running-for-us-president/ – this almost got filed under random, but Sputnik is Russian state owned so it makes an appearance here. More here from Vanity Fair.
- https://fee.org/articles/democrats-just-snuck-a-1-billion-tax-hike-on-workers-into-their-covid-bill/ – its always about using the tax system to help your friends and hurt those who may not vote your way.

- https://www.edge.org/conversation/jennifer_jacquet-shame-can-lead-to-real-change-right-now – So I personally disagree with this persons views on pretty much everything, but the points made about shame made me include it in the health (mental health) section.
Counter cancelling is now a thing. The entire narrative team building Bloodlines 2 was let go, or quit. In the words of one of the top comments, “I don’t even know who’s cancelling whom anymore! We are entering the quantum clownverse!”
- https://www.inquirer.com/about/philadelphia-inquirer-comments-section-changes-20210201.html – It is becoming more obvious every day that while the media is very interested in talking to you, they are not very interested in hearing what you say.

Written In The Stars
From our favorite astrologer!
Note, obviously we are not endorsing astrology. However, lots of people believe it, and its clearly a set of beliefs that sit outside the local overton window, so have put it up.

- Rescuing a raccoon.
- Either this gang of Rottweilers are just curious, or they’re a pack of hell hounds sent by Satan.
