A head injury took out the part of my brain that cared about politics. That’s how I’m choosing to narrativize it, anyway; but I’ve wanted out for a long time, and the recent examples of the awful epistemological standards of internet discourse only made that stronger.
I only started following politics because of the Anton-Wilsonian argument that (to summarize) one ought to follow many mutually exclusive perspectives to gain an understanding of ‘reality tunnels’, but these days that’s an infohazard. It’s easy to get sucked in, and hard to get out.
Besides, blogging won’t make your communities better.
