Coming across a lot of keyboard warriors lately. They have slogans. They have faith in what they say, they genuinely believe in what they do. They are positive they know what is good for me and you. They stubborningly think they know best. Perhaps they are right, maybe their plot we should accept and forget about the rest.
I don’t blame them. I even like some of them. I like dystopian stories too, I have even written quite a few of them. The thing is that they are just that...stories..... Digital revolutionaries, conspiracy theorists groups can be attractive especially when the alternative choice is weak or barely worth a look. The theories they steward are elaborated and they would even make sense as they are always well presented. I dare say you could almost be tempted in believing in some of them. Even without proof that would make it so comfortable and easy to accept wouldn’t it.
I am no intellectual or a scholar in fact I am not the brightest button on the coat but this is not the first time in history that we are confronted to catastrophic events. We have not always reacted in unexpected ways but we have very often created urban myths. If anything else the current pandemic should teach us humility. Mankind has become very arrogant but like many other animals on this planet we are mere guests. We don’t own the place we get to live on it. Personally I just think nature has just sent us a reminder of how insignificant we are in the overall cycle of life.
We can implore our made up gods, build myths hoping to make sense of the mess we got ourselves into but this ain’t going to lead us anywhere. We are a self obsessed species who believe in the utopia of controlling our ecosystem. Fascinating though than anything from rednecks, structured fascists groups and other right wingers almost all converge to the same point than anarchists, Antifa or anti-system opponents.
Many firmly believe in the great reset whatever the fuck that is, they denounce social media and internet manipulation on internet by mostly citing or providing links or sources from internet.
