We will continue to be angry with ourselves for being made into fools. Foolish things will continue to distract us from the real harm.
I almost posted this as a response to someone’s (yet another person’s) Facebook post about the video with the hawk and the snake.
But Facebook isn’t the place for being told to care about other things. It’s there to care about everything. Everyone’s opinion is valid about everything and Facebook sets its algorithm to show us posts we are more likely to agree with and confirm that opinion.
It brings us the video, encourages us to share it and then encourages us to rage against its makers for giving us something we found entertaining.
Now, more than ever, we have always been at war with Eastasia.
