I told you all that MA is my only social media.
I haven’t been of FB for 12 years. But, I made a new account.
I know that the world, and specifically America, has gone batshit crazy over the years. But I didn’t expect my former friends and acquaintances to be this bad.
I’m in my mid 30’s. A lot of time has passed since I talked to my elementary, middle, high school peeps. Old coworkers. Whatever.
I went hog wild. Searching and friending everyone I could think of. Seemed like a good idea at the time. Oh my god, it is so much worse than I imagined.
The political BS. The consumerism (Advertising). The fake media banter. Stupid shit that would get blasted so hard here in the OT. It just goes unchallenged there. I guess FB etiquette doesn’t allow for that? Or people are just lame.
A guy I used to work with posts all this stuff about how ignorant democrats are. Then has a, no kidding, serious post questioning why, if the Earth is orbiting the sun so fast, we don’t feel the breeze? Speculating that the Ozone Bubble shields it. However, the moon doesn’t have an ozone and the flag placed there by astronauts only flapped a little.
Like, I had my head in the sand. I raised a family and worked. Kept away from the poison that has rotted these peoples’ minds.
All this optimistic talk I have been putting on MA has been terribly misguided.
Of course I have some friends that are still thinking for themselves. They are a small minority. I don’t know what to do with the crowd I have amassed of red and blue sheeple. Delete them all and move on? Leave them there and counter post all their nonsense. “Trolling for truth”.
A guy I work with now told me to just block all their stuff and ignore them if I want.
This has been a real eye opener. How can we ever recover from the depths of ignorance we are in now? The cave of shadows is so deep, a good intentioned person could spend a lifetime and never reach the bottom.
More than ever before, I treasure those of you here on MA that have guarded your minds from the manipulation and propaganda.
