@af yeah. Especially for someone in sociology it most be horrific to study those networks that are basically a continual societal nightmare unfolding, and - given their scale, and ignorance or neglect of those people using them - a feeling of powerlessness and despair.
I share(d) the feeling and frustration, but have come to terms with it.
As long as I can make small contributions on the solution-side that's progress. And progress matters, no matter how small.
@humanetech That’s… the first time someone else understands this. Yeah I see people screaming, begging for help, usually both. People having given up on claiming their humanity. And “influencers” centralizing crucial information there, becoming complicit of this crime.
And my family didn’t understand why I’d spent so much time on Facebook and Twitter. First because I was a victim of this capitalistic rationality that science has turned into foucaldian biopower. Then because I wanted to understand.
