umair haque, you have written a brilliant, clear, well sourced article. so in need in these times.
hope you do not mind my making a comment.
it is a six minute read. we know, form various research, the human attention span is limited to about two minutes before flitting elsewhere.
especially when the information is ‘radical’ thinking.
i face this in my own writing — do you think that putting each point in separate shorter articles would work better?
