Hitler Show more
We act like Hitler did the holocaust but no, Nazi Germany did, which was composed of a very large political body run by tons of people, and which was voted for and joined by fuck tons of people. The party which would come to rename itself to the Nazi party existed *before* Hitler joined it and had the same political ideas *before* Hitler joined it. He wrote a book that got popular so they made him the face of the party. But if you killed baby Hitler it just would've been someone else

Prejudice (clarification) Show more
Just to be clear: I've been in support of legalizing sex work for more than half my life now. It's only in the last 5 years that I recognized my initial opposition as prejudice.
Prejudice starts from things as benign as being unable to understand why someone would think the way they do.
I'm very thankful for those who were willing to sit down and talk with me about my prejudices when they recognized them for what they were. I'd be a very different person without them.
Persuasive design, dark psychology Show more
Uhh I don't really have a conclusion to this thread, sorry. Just remember that if something makes you feel anxious or compelled to do something, it's probably designed that way on purpose. Millions of $$ are spent researching the most effective ways to manipulate us.
We don't have to take it. Block ads, don't play gacha games, uninstall Facebook, etc. We need to send a message that we're not going to let them fuck with our brains anymore.
Thanks for reading.

I refuse to put a subject on my emails. That is self censorship and moreover when I leave the subject line blank I get higher engagement. As a lover of free speech I will not add subjects at my emails!
You can turn off the news and sign off social media for a bit. It's okay.
