For sure, Umair is really good at being over the top. We can argue whether Umair or I have a better perspective. Umair has a large following, and I don’t. Umair is probably making a living writing about his ideas, and I’m in an echo chamber of one.

I have been dogging Umair’s Medium articles for a few months, and I get better traction than posting my own articles. I can get Medium readers to my website, but when they see that they might have to spend a few hours reading this new alternative version of democratic governance, they walk away. It seems Umair’s articles make more sense to them.

I think “me vs. Umair” reflects on the state of our societal mindset.
