Nerd Journal: Social Media Is A Nasty, Hateful Cesspool
Sometimes I'm tempted to pull the plug entirely. Political discourse is now basically a matter of wrapping oneself in threadbare self-righteousness and viciously demonizing whomever you don't like. The entire thing's become a mess of wannabe perfect angels and objectified irredeemable devils, with almost zero grasp of the fact that we live in a world of flawed human beings or that reasonable people can disagree for reasons that aren't nefarious. I'm tired of this never-ending hate-filled BS.
