I just logged onto reddit for the first time in 3 years. Boy it's a 60 IQ place now (was a 70 IQ place), just REEKS of stupid. The vast, vast majority of Americans who unfortunately use this website on the regular must be damaged beyond repair by now. Despite its glowies and botnet 4chan is miles better in terms of genuine human interaction online. But of course this is weak. Both are garbage and not worth the time. I'm guessing young people are in different pockets on discord now but I couldn't be bothered to check it out. I don't think a society can run on fakeness. It's one thing to battle repressive algorithms and disinformants, but it's quite something else when everyone Chooses to be disingenuous. Stupid really has a stench. It can be induced by any expression or sign of retardation.
Severance That I had no idea the Russia-Ukraine war was going to take place... Me being oblivious of the Russosphere... How corrupt and hopeless Europolitics is... even though I had inklings. All this makes me realize I didn't understand the world after all. I think my bubble was a mighty large one, but a bubble nonetheless. This isn't people / governments keeping secret from you, it's not knowing where to look, or lacking the interest. I still don't know if interest is a spontaneous thing. It doesn't seem like I can force myself into anything, but this bitter taste lingers after the fact. What may be consequential. I really hate the bible.
Shit movies, shit games, shit novels... it all really feels like a personal attack on me. I can't just keep reading maps you know. Just unbearable watching technology and resources and attention being wasted on these great mass equalizers.
