My first big endeavor to improve mathematics was my PhD thesis, which Im sharing here. I will use this site to share resources related to math or academia, but I do not anticipate regular postings as I spend most of my time dealing with childcare, worrying about politics, or researching the history of social injustice.
“I have expressed and repressed a large number of feelings since Election Day. I am scared of a Trump presidency, but if liberation is my aim, I should not have been satisfied with a Clinton presidency. The machine of death that is the United States of America should never be satisfying to anyone who supports the people. Still, I am scared of a Trump presidency...What keeps me on edge is the miraculous capacity humans have not to scream when they ought to...
...The election of Donald Trump was a declaration of civil war from modern white supremacist people who felt war had already been declared on them. We need to scream. We need to obstruct. We need to fight. We need to resist. We should feel no obligation to compromise where we have already compromised....
For a while now, people have talked about staying woke. Well, woke dont matter if you dont act. We need to stay more than woke.
If we want justice, we must stop being reasonable. We must throw out all our notions of the right way to do things. (Academics, purge your belief in meritocracy.) This is an emergency.
Do not negotiate with racists. Do not negotiate with bigots. Do not compromise on justice.
Your tax dollars fund her “screaming”. I think she needs a job cleaning stables until she learns what work is like - work when you don’t have time to concentrate on “intersectional radical feminism, Number Theory, anti-racism, etc.”
