The Likely Cause of Addiction Has Been Discovered, and It Is Not What You Think | Johann Hari

Argues addiction is an adaptation to misery and lack of human connection; not a chemical dependence or a moral failing.

Facts and evidence [...] simply aren’t that effective, given how selectively they are processed and interpreted. Instead, why not focus on presenting issues in a way keeps broader notions out of it—messages that are not [...] in any way a reflection of who you are?

1. Small individual bias → Large collective bias.
2. The past haunts the present, being unbiased is not enough.
3. Demand diversity near you.

As our culture progressed and became more and more willing to study racism and misogyny, and how they both operate systemically within our culture, ... the definition of “good guy” changed.

It was no longer just a public declaration that you weren’t bigoted and a lack of active oppression of women and people of color. Being a “good guy” now meant engaging in a difficult and complex process of understanding privilege, including your own privilege, acknowledging that, and understanding how racism and misogyny are created and disseminated, how much of that we’ve internalized, and how we work to end that.... Most of us are still struggling with these issues and our place within them every day.

But some people are LIVID... [They] cannot comprehend ... the idea that someone else’s narrative could be just as important, or, possibly, for even just a moment, more urgent and important, as anything but a MASSIVE injustice against them. They’ve been first in line for so long THEY NEVER EVEN KNEW THE LINE EXISTED, and they believe that being asked to wait in line like everyone else is bigotry against them. ...

They BELIEVE they’re the victims of a culture that changed behind their backs and deprived them of being the well-liked “good guy” without meeting new qualifications; ... the victims of a culture that suddenly “doesn’t care” about their issues because the issues of other groups are starting to be seen as equally important; the victims of a culture that no longer posits “white guy” as the one human in constant possession of the benefit of the doubt.

More than 80 countries around the world still criminalize consensual homosexual conduct ... More than half those countries have these laws because they once were British colonies. ... It was a colonial attempt to set standards of behavior, both to reform the colonized and to protect the colonizers against moral lapses. ...
In recent decades, judges, public figures and political leaders have defended [these] laws as citadels of nationhood and cultural authenticityHomosexuality, they now claim, comes from the colonizing West. They forget the West brought in the first laws enabling governments to forbid and repress it. ... Much of this fierce opposition stem[s] from Christian churches—themselves, of course, hardly homegrown in their origins.

More women in engineering: Something that ACTUALLY WORKED for Etsy

Just saying stuff internally isn't credible. Most technical interviews suck and undermine diversity goals.
Etsy gave out grants specifically to female participants of their "hacker school" that they recruit from instead of just using interviews, which balanced out the gender ratio of attendees and "felt like a real invitation" rather than just lofty talk.

People interpret criticism completely differently depending on how they see the relationship between themselves and the critic. ...
If we can find a way to tell our stories outside of partisan frames, we might reduce feelings of unfairness. The trick would be to shy away from invoking divisive identities, preferring frames that allow members of a polarized audience to see themselves as part of the same group.
