I am probably the odd man out here, but when I talk about my problems with the ”culture war” destroying my will to rewatch The Last Jedi, it is mainly not because of Evil Right-Wing-Alt-Right-Nazi-Incel-Hobgoblins, it’s because of their opposite yet still strangely similar counterparts ... blog.henrikcarlsson.se

@MrHenko Ctrl-Alt-Ignore them all, go see the movie and try to watch it with a fresh mind, and enjoy the parts you like. 🥳👍

@odd You are right, off course. The problem is that I find the ignore part hard to do. And that’s probably why I feel especially negative toward the idiots on ”the left”, rather than on ”the right”. The stupidities of ”the right” is fairly simple to ignore. Just don’t read their fringe publications. Ignoring stupidities from ”the left” on the other hand would require me to ignore so much mainstream press.

@MrHenko Yeah, I think I see what you mean. I’m of no particular political affiliation, but I guess I’m a bit centrist, with some ideas towards both sides, and some completely my own. I try to get my news from independent sources (if some indeed can be called independent), and otherwise I read with those “ah, of course they’ll say that, being one of them”-eyeglasses. It’s tiresome, but I feel I need to get some information. There’s a lot of good info here on micro blog and the connected blogs too.

@odd That sounds like a reasonable approach to things.
