Can we talk for a moment about how Twitter is a social engineering scam and Jack Dorsey and Vijaya Gadde are evil, evil fucks?
The goal of Twitter is not "social media" but "social accreditation," with the goal being the permanent exile and punishment of anyone who dares to commit speech and/or thought crimes according to the principles of "cancel culture" and "the Woke Left." You can't learn from mistakes if the penalty is eternal banishment from society.

So this was brought to my attention this afternoon:
the thing that defines the US as a country is how punitive and spiteful we are. every state can say, "hey, we're releasing anyone currently in jail for non-violent offenses". it's easy. but it won't happen. because we're about sending a message. and that message is, "we are assholes"
My worst nightmares aren't the ones about werewolves and poltergeists, but mundane horrors like the toilet uncontrollably overflowing and my dwelling & belongings being covered in an endless oozing river of foul shit, and I guess that's the best possible metaphor that my subconscious can come up with for the end of civilization as we know it.
@thor True. "Be yourself" is utter nonsensical tripe. You decide who and what you are in every moment. There is no objective answer to "who/what are you?" Consider this glass of water. Is it you? Now drink it. Is it you? If yes, you mean that part of what you are is the physical matter of your body. If no, it means you are not your body. So what is the rest of you? Your thoughts, words and deeds. Those things are your only freedoms. You choose all of them, but they have boundaries, limitations.
