Now as everyone knows, I’ve been checking out Minds as a new social media platform, not because I have any love for social media, but because a lot of people have been abandoning places like Twitter and Facebook and moving over there and these are, what I thought, were “my people”.
But wow, was I wrong, at least for a sizeable chunk of them.
Now these people are seemingly intelligent, at least they can string together a couple of sentences of decently chosen words, but on more than one occasion, and it’s more than you might even think, these people will be speaking semi-intellectually about things like politics or philosophy and suddenly go into a diatribe about the Illuminati. Or the flat earth. Or some other crazy conspiracy theory that leaves me shaking my head, once my jaw stops bouncing off the floor. Because it makes me wonder what the hell is wrong with these people?
I mean seriously, I was watching one video where this woman was having what seemed to be a serious discussion about the rise of communism in America, when she just broke off into “well, I could talk about the Illuminati or the Bilderbergs, who really run things…” and I just shut off her video. Sorry, you’ve just lost yourself a viewer. And I have also noticed that there are a ton, and I mean a metric ton of anti-Semites running around too, blaming the Jews for everything. I mean, holy crap, what is wrong with these idiots?
There honestly doesn’t seem to be anywhere I can go where people are just rational. It’s always varying degrees of irrationality. There’s always some kind of crazy running around out there, even in so-called “skeptic” communities, where people will be pretty decent most of the time until you find that one thing that they are just out of their bloody minds about.
What the fuck is wrong with humanity?
