the one thing i truly despise, like in my deepest bones, is the era of scientific ‘logic’ that resulted in humans thinking they could design things better than nature. if biomimicry has shown us anything, it’s that we could have been copying off Nature’s homework this entire time!!
perhaps not popular viewpoints, especially in some circles of discourse, but:
democracy might not be the best option but it’s better than the alternatives, immigration is the lifeblood of any late-industrial stage country, non-white collar crime is a failure of the society not the individual, and the profligate use of plastics will be acknowledged as one of the greatest missteps of our species, but only after we have an alternative
if we transfer our nationalist bullshit into space, we’re gonna die on this mudball. hell, if we can quash some of this ‘arbitrary lines drawn on a map means i kill you’ stuff, we might solve a whole mess of problems even before we get interplanetary
oh you mean, echo chambers? AKA ‘polarization by networking’? that thing is verified by the math? groovy. now what?
