“The point was that 99% of the people losing their collective shit over Putin and Ukraine on social media will have likely forgotten or lost interest in it within a few weeks.

We’re all more hypnotized, by outside “events,” than we are willing to admit.

Do you notice how I always (try to) bring back cultural absurdity and political atrocity to you?

As I said in my The Rise of Self-Distraction post (2020), when an imaginary, sensationalized or characterized enemy can feed their addiction for self-distraction, why for shits sake would somebody so fearful of themselves not join in a fad-movement like toxic masculinity, or ________ (fill in the blank with any new, temporary cool thing to rail about).
