Hey all, after yesterday's events and the barrage of threads concerning it, I noticed a trend. This site has become really divisive. O remember
lurking years ago before I even started an account, most everyone was friendly. There were some heated arguments, but both parties were respectful.
Now maybe it's just me, but holy cow. Most threads you encounter will be full of people stating their opinion (fine) then insulting any who disagree
to any extent (not cool)
Maybe I'm just a softie, but I miss the days when we recognized the enemy. And it wasn't the "right" or the "left" it was the entirety of the people
who claim power over us.
It REALLY amped up during the election. I witnessed some members I had respect for say some awful things to one another. From both "sides"
It was too much. I had to walk away. I took a break for several months from even visiting this site.
And upon returning noticed it hadn't changed. If anything it got worse.
Right or left. We are all under the control of a system designed to keep us down. Trump is no different. Clinton would have been no different
TPTB do not care about us. These people aren't our neighbors. They have a vested interest in protecting their investment. Which translates to dollar
signs. They want to divide us. And as a nation we've bought into it. Hook, line, and sinker.
Maybe this should be in the rant section.
I just miss the good ol days.
I just wish we could see the common enemy isn't each other.
"Yes I know my enemies, they're the teachers who taught me to fight me."
ETA: I do not identify as democrat, republican, socialist, if anything I am a humanist.
