No but it can do a lot for your anger and anxiety. The world on the internet is a funhouse mirror version of the world as it exists. Admittedly, it's been spilling into real life in alarming ways recently, but for the most part just shutting off all social media, at least, will improve your outlook in ways you can't even anticipate. Anticorporatist you are, you of all people should recognize that online media companies make money by not letting you look away. That's their superpower and it's fucking malevolent, plain and simple.

It is no measure of health to be adapted to a sick society.
