This ratio surely exists, votes lost:fraud prevented. It definitely isn't 1:infinity or vice versa. I'm not quite sure what is a reasonable ratio, but I'm confident it isn't the 1000s:1 ratio that most voter suppression /anti fraud laws seem to cause
This doesn't mean compromise doesn't need to be made, it absolutely does. I'm just trying to take the moral high ground away from the low cleanliness threshold folks.
This thread was inspired by my roommates asking me to clean the dishes.
When low threshold people get accused of being lazy by high thresholds, it is frustrating because we never noticed a problem. We never got the environmental cues to clean because the low threshold people never let it get to that point.
There are real tradeoffs to having a low cleanliness threshold. Time, energy, and resources must be regularly spent. The more slovenly of us conserve all 3. We chunk tasks by doing them more infrequently.
We don't need or want someone armed and empowered to use deadly force performing many of the tasks we currently ask of police. Police should be fewer, less utilized, better trained, and held to a much higher standard than ordinary citizens

I hope @AustinTexasGov@twitter.com, led by @MayorAdler@twitter.com and #ATXCouncil, implements the @CDCgov@twitter.com guidelines today.
And if the city expects to be shutting down bars and restaurants like New York and other cities have, I urge them to do that today, too. Let's get ahead. https://twitter.com/CDCgov/status/1239357433383960576?s=19
