Politics destroy humanity. The debate is just another example of a minute (but extremely powerful) sector of society who benefit from spreading unhappiness unto the world — with politics, it’s unhappiness in the form of fear, with advertising, it’s spreading insecurities, and so on.
In Egypt there are advertisements of a cream called “Fair and Lovely” that is supposed to make skin lighter and yet, more beautiful. Unhappiness sells. So does fear.
So I do understand the need to run away from all of it, that is why Medium is a form of escape.
