Malcolm has been writing about race and policing for a very long time, going back to the killing of Amadou Diallo in 1999. Sometimes, it is useful to take a step back and consider policing in a broader context. Here we present a chapter from Malcolm's book David and Goliath, which includes an analysis of a riot in Northern Ireland in 1970. Many miles and many years away. About divisions of religion and class and not divisions of race. But the core questions to be asked in 1970 and 1999 and today are the same: if you have power, what does it mean to use it, and use it wisely? And what are the consequences if you don't?David and Goliath: Underdogs, Misfits and the Art of Battling Giants was published in 2013 by Little, Brown and Company. Audiobook production by Hachette Audio.

Weird fanfic but the show IS called "Revisionist" so... I don't disagree with a lot of the points over this three parter, but there's a lot of sea miles between "someone was mean to me" so "I've killed/enslaved/transformed countless sentients" and "stopped fighting the hug so all's forgiven". I'm all for redemption and reformation, but there needs to be more than just a hand wave and a shrug to rectify evil acts. How is Triton's banishment (which we're meant to believe was solely because she had magic) more harsh than turning thinking creatures into polyps? Sometimes Malcolm goes so far off the deep end I'm surprised he isn't a merperson himself.

I don't know if you've ever been to the US, but the law and contracts pretty much always DO favor and protect the evil sea witches (e.g. corporations, politicians, anyone rich enough to sustain a lawyer through any challenges). in this aspect, the Little Mermaid was pretty authentic in that the system has been rigged to support the evil sea witches and unless we do a violence and change the system, that is how it will be.

Hey, Malcolm, don’t forget your Post roots. What is the current policy in those states that didn’t have triplicate rules. Did they learn from their mistakes? Apparently, there a heck of a lot of “Dr. Feelgoods” out there.

The recording skips ahead at timestamp 34:53 (out of 36:13 total), jumping over part of Malcolm's episode conclusion. Appears to be an editing error that has happened before.
