'“According to contemporary cosmology, no object belonging to Spanish charcuterie exists anywhere but on Earth,” he said after apologising for tricking so many people.'

I have no doubt that Paul Krugman is knowingly and deliberately making a straw man here.

In his role as protector of the hegemony, I'm also fairly certain Krugman will not engage with any of the research in Hickel's replies.

The European Union official accounts are mostly one-directional for issuing press releases. However, there are some official EU accounts which do interact on the Fediverse:

➡️ @EC_OSPO - Managing relations between the EU and the FOSS community

➡️ @EC_NGI - Helps fund free open source decentralised projects on Fedi and elsewhere.

➡️ @EDPS - Advises EU on all matters related to personal data

➡️ @EC_DIGIT - Provides digital services to EU departments

(Thanks to @humanetech for highlighting this!)
