Like, I think she's nice, I want more people to listen to her (if they would/could) and the whole campaign against her disability and age is appalling, but if you're just going to be an influencer without actually inventing anything yourself there's just better ways to do it. Look at how Ken Robinson talks about another crisis that's almost as serious and destructive - education. He uses jokes and examples and all that about something way less debatable and easy/quick to prove and test. Of course haters are gonna pile up on her later for being "just a face".

Note: I failed to adequately explore the single biggest cost of the military-industrial complex: the loss of human lives. Watching the piece again, I wish I had done a better job of weaving the ramifications of violence into this video.

I feel like the remnants of my sarcasm are the only temporary comfort I can have regarding this topic.
