there's been quite a bit of research on the cognitive/health benefits of multilingualism, but I think the framing tends to be backwards. multilingualism isn't a bonus, but the default (historically, anthropologically, biologically). our species developed multilingual, and still is everywhere not too damaged by colonial steamrollers. monolingualism is a v recent development, an emergent artifact of a capitalist+racist society.

so we should be talking about the cognitive damage of monolingualism.

18 people have said they'd be interested in presenting subjects of expertise (or something that maybe you researched extensively for an article) as a teach-in.

Does anyone have any experience organizing online teach-ins?

me: hell yea

kant: it would contradict—

me: 'steal everything always'. got it
