For the record, I’m taking a self imposed social media break.
There’s a lot going on, and it’s just so anger inducing. Seeing people try to spin the situation as something it isn’t - a false flag, a CIA op, a conspiracy - it’s maddening.
For some, conspiracies feed the need to make sense of the world. Things happen that are out of the norm, or go against an established worldview, their minds create fairy stories to cover over the rough edges, to allow them to keep living in their isolated, false world. For others, it’s a means to sow discord, to further a destructive propaganda campaign for selfish, malicious reasons.
Seeing people push these stories, regardless of their motivation, it’s more than I can handle right now.
I just want to shake them until they stop making noise.
Anyway. It’s time for a long weekend so that’ll be a nice break.
