It's always interesting to see how many people want a thing without any thought for how the thing will be used against them in the future.

For example, "misinformation" must be eliminated.

Guess what, dingdongs...you're a few angry redneck votes away from being the spreaders of "misinformation."

Want Rogan removed? No problem. Guess what's happening to Oprah in 3 years.

Then...Ha! We finally got that loser Oprah fired! Uh-oh, Hillary just got elected. 70 years in the gulag for Chappelle.

So on and so forth.

It's always been this way, tit-for-tat, and still people cannot get it through their heads that they need to seek out another way to find internal peace or whatever. Hitting it with a hammer only works as long as you have the hammer...and nails hold a grudge.

@MRECheese the censorship will always work in the bad guys favor, voting doesn't matter it's only going to get worse. When a right wing president gets in they never do anything to fix the problem.

@furgar Fixing the problem is kind of my point. Even if it's fixing it the way I want it to be fixed, it's the fix that will kick me in the nuts down the road somehow. I'd argue that real freedom is less fixing. Bear in mind this is coming from a gun-toting tobacco-smoking Texas yeehaw. I've been fixed plenty.

( Though the pirate party has given speaking in politics a more consistent quality and decent name for itself despite the name which you might even say could deter people more than falsely lull them - and while increasing in popularity and awareness all the while (so even if nothing comes their quality speaking in realm of politics is actually a _major_ achievement in my book. Puts ' logic ' to a whole new level compared to almost all other parties " )

( could be right but also could mean or I would suggest meaning that we learn more and learn to trust ourselves and others while communicating better instead of trying in same-same ways or complaining while we pay them a boat-load of taxes that they literally pay themselves to go on conquest

@freeschool You are the "they" and "somebody" from when I say, "They should try talking to a human more." Or, "Somebody should just invite people to a video chat to hash these things out instead of trying to convey their base humanity through text."

Excellent. Good for you.

Could you say more what you mean a bit more specifically and maybe what you don't mean (idiot-proof a bit more) thanks

@freeschool Pressed for time, so I'm being low-effort, forgive me. First, it was meant as a compliment. Just recognising your effort to have a higher standard for communication. I actually mentioned having video chats with people in an old post and it's something I've often said we should do more often. However, because I lack the balls to actually implement it, I always say "somebody" should do it or "they" should do it, i.e. someone other than me. Turns out that's you. I'm inspired to try it myself now.
