Cringe is the mind-killer.
Cringe is the little-death that brings total cancellation.

Your daily reminder that the enemy of your enemy is not necessarily your friend.

Case in point: right-libertarian and far-right asshats hate Big Tech too… but for all the wrong reasons. We have NOTHING in common with those douchebags and they can fuck the fuck right off.
