@KaraHenderson So hard to say. Here are six that affect me, classics: Iliad. Last Days of Socrates. Hundred Years of Solitude. Pride and Prejudice. Origin of Species. On Liberty. And: Stumbling on Happiness. Guns Germs Steel. Righteous Minds. No Magic Bullet. Language Instinct.

Hospitals Must Let Doctors and Nurses Speak Out “Clamping down on people who are speaking is a kind of idiocy of the highest order.” I spoke to @conor64 @TheAtlantic because I feel very strongly that we will not beat COVID19 with censorship. theatlantic.com/ideas/archive/…

If the school is simply unable or unwilling to close, though I think they should, there are a few things it can do to reduce social contact at the school, and which it should therefore do right away. Some ideas in @TheAtlantic with @ErikaChristakis: theatlantic.com/ideas/archive/… 20/

I think it’s likely that the COVID-19 epidemic could be as severe as to claim 35,000 lives in the USA this year. It could be less severe, of course! Or more. It’s still hard to say. 1/

Nicholas A. Christakis @NAChristakis

@GabrielRossman @sensibleid @Cridmo @SwipeWright That's right. Two issues here: 1) that our restriction of exposure helped create the real epidemic, and 2) that there were 'copycat' cases of people who were not truly severely allergic and an 'epidemic of anxiety.' This was known for very long. bmj.com/content/337/bm…

In epidemics, social contagion in behavior (eg, self-isolation, vaccination) often is dueling with biological contagion in pathogens, and each contagion 'interferes' with the other. #DuelingContagion Our 2017 @SciReports paper from #HNL on how: nature.com/articles/srep4… #COVID19 pic.twitter.com/6bAbkT6OHF

If you are so confident in the truth of what you say, go out and win the battle of ideas. You might even learn something from your opponents' ostensibly false ideas. Short clip from my longer interview at @bigthink bigthink.com/videos/debate-…

I just listened to @NAChristakis' great interview on @HdxAcademy's podcast. It was hopeful and uplifting. And, despite the gloom everywhere, makes sense. We are evolved to help one another. heterodoxacademy.org/podcast-hhh-59…
