Good on for getting it out there, & sharing it here, with us. What I see is one person’s perspective, valid for being what it is.
What I also see is hate — yours. Do you see it? It doesn’t matter, as it remains valid as your current perspective. As you’re no doubt aware, there are other perspectives out there, & far more available not yet so masterfully expressed as yours.
I feel no need to convert you to my perspective — yours is fine — for you. Yes, it’s pretty depressing, but it’s only one point of view, one angle on the whole scene. I love the way you shared the original excitement, your view of the high ideals under the Twitter creation — I’m good with that. No one can see into the future, as it’s created one thought, one decision at a time in the presence of free will — so they can’t be blamed for that.
Any time we judge one another — or self-judge — to me, that’s a bad scene. We’re each in charge of only one thing in all of life — the self. That’s our master creation, & it does not blossom well under criticism or judgment, which are crushing to something delicate, within. We’re not qualified to judge others, not having walked a mile in their moccasins — that’s how I see it, anyway.
Truth is the highest ideal, would you agree? Truth isn’t pretty, sometimes. Yet we seem to have lost the ultimate ideal the old philosophers saw in truth — call it Truth — the absolute purity of that. We live in a world of relativity, relative everything — including our ideas/beliefs around Truth. Yet, if you take a pure Truth & apply one iota of non-truth, such as saying words that are true with a polluted intent of any kind, what we’re not seeing today is that that’s a relative truth — it’s no longer Truth.
I am not speaking to your intent, here — not at all. This is on the topic of ideals, such as those of the original founders. Nor am I speaking to their intent — just intent, in general, divorced of any relative application, so please don’t take anything here, personally. Just sharing my Truth, to the best of my ability.
If the world is fucked, it’s because we’re fucked as individuals. It’s the world of our own creation. I laud & applaud everyone with the guts, the self-honesty, to share their perceived Truth. I find it beautiful, even when it’s messy.
Just know that there are other perspectives available — much less painful ones. That’s all I’ll say. 😉
