Since 2000 A.D. Humanity entered one interesting stage. We are not anymore finding ourselves emotionally divided by our countries or nations, but by ideological factions - derived directly from avocations, hobbies, art interests and such.

Nothing wrong here. There is ideological space for each of us to belong.

However I see a trend, a sad trend. The internet-information society becomes a society of crap. ATS is just one example - very small one. It degrades slowly, following the trend implied by the major players in the field FB, TW, News sites... And such.

We no more promote reason and thought on the internet as a general, but idiocy. And even if one tries to bring the old way back, he will find himself/herself to sound out of place... as a crocodile in a swimming pool.

The internet is dead. Long Live The Crap!

Agreed. It is all one big never-ending circle jerk.

We need to find the fun again.

Apart from suffering, can you know bliss in its final state? Apart from ignorance, would you value true knowledge? Apart from the journey into relative division, can you gain absolute wisdom? Apart from necessity, can you gain strength?

Tao Te Ching Chapter 2

As soon as beauty is known by the world as beautiful, it becomes ugly.
As soon as virtue is being known as something good, it becomes evil.
Therefore being and non-being give birth to each other.
Difficult and easy accomplish each other.
Long and short form each other.
High and low distinguish each other.
Sound and tone harmonize each other
Before and after follow each other as a sequence.
Realizing this, the saint performs effortlessly according to the natural Way without personal
desire, and practices the wordless teaching thru one’s deeds.
The saint inspires the vitality of all lives, without holding back.
He nurtures all beings with no wish to take possession of.
He devotes all his energy but has no intention to hold on to the merit.
When success is achieved, he seeks no recognition.
Because he does not claim for the credit, hence shall not lose it.
