We're producing more stories than ever. Here's a digest of everything we published today so we don't clog your email.
Thank you Bari for having the courage to have written and run the important stories we have been privileged to read this past year. I share them regularly with friends and family who otherwise are often ignorant of the issues on which you focus, thanks to a “mainstream media” which is biased beyond recognition. I also of course encourage them to subscribe, so that you can continue this critical work. Bravo!
$5 Subbed after seeing your CNN interview with Brian Stelter. Big believer in what you are doing. Keep up the great work.
I am listening to the interview with Jaron Lanier in the Was the Internet a Horrible Mistake podcast. Is he really a distinguished visionary or a merely a demagogue enjoying the sound of his own voice?
Somehow I can't shed the feeling that his presentation, as well as the entire Silicon Valley clique influencing most aspects of our daily lives, supports the suspicion that the Internet and, especially, personal computer technology, was created as a money-making wonder toys without a second thought, let alone substantial analysis of possible consequences and implications.
In short, once again, I hear a lot of clever wordsmithing without taking any responsibility for the wrong he and the likes brought upon humanity.
Thank You, Mr. Lanier!!!
Thanks to your wonderful book, I quit Twitter and my 8,000 "followers"(these "followers" could not have picked me out in a police lineup) and my mental health improved 10,000 percent.
Social media gave me a very dark twisted view of the world - especially of people who didn't subscribe to my rigid dogma.
I feel better about the world, my neighbors, and myself since escaping the grotesque funhouse mirror of social media.
It's killing our democracy.

As days go by, this Substack becomes more run of the mill opinion website and less what I paid for: Common Sense BY Bari Weiss. Kind of don't want "more stories than ever."
Great reads....I'll read anything you post! I will listen, read and learn. I will read all the comments. I'm grateful for you and your guest writer's. I'm grateful for everyone commenting whether I agree or not. Finally a place where decency exists.
new subscriber here. Looking forward to future articles and discussions. Common sense is sorely lacking these days...
Proud to subscribe
Bari Weiss - thank you.
Very interesting discussion. I didn't buy everything he was saying, but there were a few real nuggets of truth.
Site is always high quality product and style, but badly needs the diversification in subject matter and tone these stories offer. Thanks.
