The Internet Sucks. There, I Said It.
Why does the internet suck? Because it's made conversation about any subject literally impossible. For all the hope and wonder our parents and grandparents had about technology, it's all gone to shit. The positive future envisioned by Star Trek was instead replaced with the dystopian one envisioned by The Terminator, Blade Runner, The Purge, The Hunger Games and so on.
For every informative and thought provoking website, video or article, there are a thousand that are literally nothing more than shitposts. And sifting through the bad to get to the good is an impossible task thanks in part to the fact that the search engines literally put the shit on page one (And it's even worse now with google going after anything that isn't pro corporate).
Here's something informative from a guy who's fighting tooth and nail for better science education in Texas:
Yet for all his work, the Democratic Party won't even acknowledge his existence.
And then, there's shit like this:
There is literally terabytes of bandwidth invested into this asshole. Channel after channel, video after video, page after page, literally getting off on this guy's constant fuck-ups and outright douchebaggery.
You can't fight city hall anymore than you can fix stupid. And believe me, America is a very stupid god damn country. The people who actually want to make the world a better place are outnumbered 10 to 1 by those who only give a fuck about themselves, and this is no accident.
The last thing the two-factioned Corporate Propertarian Uniparty wants any of us to do is to work together on anything....except when one of the porkies can profit off of it. Profit is the only legal obligation that the slush funds calling themselves employers have anyway.
And we have no recourse. Anything we even try to do will be stopped dead by the government, their mercenaries, their increasing alt-right shock troops (Though they feign opposition to this shit), the corporate courts and every other apparatus controlled by the capitalists while blaming the non-existent 'regressive left' for their shit.
Call me cynical if you like, but that's just how it is.
See ya around,
