Hello! I’ve been offline for the last two weeks. What’d I miss?
Judging by the headlines in my inbox, the last ten days have seen enough drama to fill a whole year. Bad stuff abounds, but this is what every week looks like to those who get sucked in.
A lot has happened; nothing’s changed. The real world is actually incredibly dull. Dullness doesn’t sell ads, so the media has to manufacture a continuous stream of outrage to fill the void. The coastal elite don’t live in a bubble, they live in a screaming echo chamber. No wonder we’ve all gone insane.
