Mike thanks for posting, I think you hit the nail as usual.

It is very interesting the contrast in appreciation we see of your article, compared with others simply lamenting the US condition exposed by the Trump Biden debacle of yesterday, but which ignore the underlying driver of the problems; the profit driven system.

We know better than to be gaslighted by that, but the platforms need to start taking an honest look at the part their algos play in hiding the ugly truths of profit.

Is Medium’s algo really nothing more sophisticated than the level of conversation we saw between the two protagonists yesterday?
