Cancel Paul Graham 

I don’t even know where to start taking this bullshit opinion apart.

re: Cancel Paul Graham 

@thomasfuchs who is this person?

re: Cancel Paul Graham 

@brainblasted you're so lucky tbh to not have to know him @thomasfuchs

Cancel Paul Graham 

@thomasfuchs Yeah, that's a pretty bad take

Cancel Paul Graham 

@thomasfuchs
How about this...

We get cancel culture instead of restorative justice because the social media business model is to build a shanty town and sell billboard space to those providing phony cures for the ailments caused by the unsanitary conditions

I don't expect common sense like, "The coffee tastes better when you build the latrines downstream from the mess," from Twitter, but Paul Graham doesn't know the difference between a teapot and a chamber pot

re: Cancel Paul Graham 

@thomasfuchs if everyone was 300 years old we'd all have some pretty awful opinions just given how many awful opinions people can obtain in under 100 years

Cancel Paul Graham 

@thomasfuchs people really don't give him enough credit for being the capitalist that created a slashdot clone so abhorrent some guy makes a living off calling out all the shit takes posted there

Cancel Paul Graham 

@thomasfuchs I've run into enough angry Olds as a *class* to be pretty confident that there's close to an empirical finding that moral thought drifts over time. then the question is: what do you do about that, if your 160 year old gggggg-pa is around to rant & vote.

study enough cultural history & this becomes clear as day. lifetime extension would cause issues(probably just a gerontocracy and an iron imposing of reactionary conservativism imo)

re: Cancel Paul Graham 

@thomasfuchs not to be smug or anything but I canceled Paul Graham way before Twitter.

*checks blog*

holy crap i got tired of him before yc even

anyways yeah please cancel pg
