OK, now you're saying something concrete, and I don't think you're completely wrong.
Too many of us here have been horrified at what we see as the implosion of American statehood. Personally, I'm studying it. And I know that with your socioeconomic philosophy of choice (for posterity: libertarianism), statehood is naught but a hindrance, and thus, I think it's hard for me to find common ground with someone who may delight in Trump's dismantling of this country's government.
My horror is reason #1 why I'm not on here waxing poetic-ish about the observed shape of accretion disks bent around black holes by spacetime or whatever. A chorus of other scientist-types are freaking the fuck out too at this administration. I'm not trying to pretend like muh peoples are the end-all, be-all source of wisdom, but to deny that this administration is anti-science is laughable, and some of us are fucking pissed. It's killing people.
I actually don't know how to have a conversation like this anymore. This is a pretty bad first/second attempt, and I'm sorry. Am I? I'm definitely pretty fuckin angry. There's no way that you're as angry as me, bro. Good for you. I'm jealous.
Ugghh, it got uglier from there, I deleted paragraphs.
I'm tired of seeing articles like this that are basically railing against the inevitable disruptions to society brought on by the internet, transparently adapted for a particular brand of politics. Yes, of course people posting their brainfarts on social media is going to be occasionally terrible for said people. That's one reason I'm here fleshing things out pseudonymously.
Edit: I apologize to mk, I didn't fully process their comment before posting. You can ignore me and just respond to mk, if you like. I don't want you to leave this place. I enjoy your contributions. Just because we disagree doesn't mean we gotta hate. It's a couple hours later, I've cooled off a bit, but I'm gonna leave up what I wrote, because it'd be hard for me not to have a hot take like that in person. Maybe I'm simulating that? weird
