It's especially interesting when you start building postmodern idea's off of other "proven" post modern idea's. When you hear about it one finds it hard to believe it's even a real thing, until you find video of someone talking about it
I am not sure if Q would fall under the category of post modernism or not but it surely falls into the category of ridiculous and something that needs to be addressed. Conspiracy is something that I struggle with, on one hand it seems like something that should be "removed" from the internet in the sense that it can cause harm to others but I don't like engaging in censorship. Who decides what is harmful? (Well that seems clear these days, twitter, facebook, google and amazon) How do you address Q effectively without banning millions? Like Glenn Greenwald was saying I think it starts with rebuilding the trust that the people have in the msm. For millions of people all across the globe they just don't believe anything that the t.v. is telling them anymore. These people feel so alienated that there is no longer a communication line. I have seen some fairly smart people get into Q and I find it baffling.
All the censorship works against it, those banishment's just reinforce the idea that they were right. The big man keeping them down. All it really does in continually push those thought bubbles farther and farther into the fringe, until there is no discourse, two sides totally disconnected from each others realities
I do think about the finger pointing that goes on these days and wonder how big of a problem that really is. Considering this post is one of them too. Probably the best advice you do hear on this forum is to work on yourself, the whole glass house business. Asking another to do so is a skill that most people don't posses, to be able to talk to someone without insulting them or putting them on the defensive, and ask them to look inside and try to see themselves. For me it can come in the form of observing another person's behavior and realizing that I do the same thing
