What a year.
Chaos brought opportunity for me. This has always been the case for me. COVID 19, identity politics, racial tension seems to be the focus this year. This is a year where feelings out weight everything and sometimes even death.
As a fresh step, I’ve taken on a new group of friends in the younger generation. Partly because the successful group I hang out and fought with are now busy from their success as well and we don’t want to waste each other’s time with mundane stuff. Partly because I don’t want to be too disconnected with what the society is actually thinking about. The one thing that stuck out often to me, is that in many instances, people place more importance on not hurting other’s feelings than ensuring that people don’t die. Which is somewhat my reason for not blogging at all. The truth hurts and nowadays, hurting ppl’s feelings will get you cancelled.
Racism is the topic of the year along with the virus. Yet when you ask :”What about Asians?” Crickets. Looks like violence is the only way to get things addressed in this environment. Probably the most interesting thing are these Social Justice Warriors telling others what their race should be enraged about. Like, they are getting their feelings hurt for you yet they’ve never experienced racism themselves. Anyway, it’s hard for me to get behind a movement when the movement is such an exclusive event to only certain people based on their skin color.
All these to bring everything back to the topic of potentially password protecting this whole blog. Not like many ppl are reading it after such a long absence. And as I continue to move up in the world, the possibility of this blog being used as something against me increases and managing all the new waves of bot comments is costing too much time.
I don’t have much to say anyway since I haven’t had any eureka moments lately. Scrap that. I did notice that it is harder and harder to tell what is the correct answer because usually both side of the argument have scientific research backing them up. Suffice to say, the propaganda machine have learnt how to argue using data as well. So many times, whether or not ppl think your arguments are based on science or logic depends very much on whether or not these ppl think of you as one of their own.
Other than these, there’s nothing I can say more. The really juicy stuff will probably get me cancelled. I don’t know. I don’t know what will get ppl’s feeling hurt anymore and it seems like everything.
