The world is a bit crazy right now, with all of the ongoing wars.
At times like this I hate social media: the ugly side of many people starts to show via this brutally honest mirror we all carry around in our pockets.
My X feed this week was not only full of horrific videos, but lots of hateful, divided commentary.
Tribalism enables many people to justify any kind of behaviour, not matter how horrific. Empathy is lost.
Equally disturbing is the so-called "hot take guys", who want to comment on whatever is trending on X that day.
When I see people jumping on trending topics just to get some views, no matter how tragic those events are in real life: I find that disgusting.
I wish we had a site like X that only focused on economics, business, tech, and science only, but the truth is that all of those topics are now being looked upon via a Left or Right prism. Bias is everywhere.
I am apolitical, I vote for nobody, but I must admit I am in a tiny minority.
The best thing I can do is drop off social media until the latest storm passes, or drop off social media altogether...
In its normal state, social media is noisy. In an abnormal state, it becomes overwhelming: a series of angry mobs shouting at anyone who dares to disagree.
