You mean to tell me that seeing songs being destroyed by nightcore doesn't make you cry?

Yesterday I had coffee with a bunch of recently graduated college educated liberal yuppies I knew from high school.

Never have I interacted with such a sleepy, boring, dispassionate group of people. It's almost as though these institutions are run by vampires. No wonder they're bending over for their southern invaders. Tried getting them to discuss politics and current events but they all "preferred not to think about it."

I mean if they're all like these the culture war is as good as won but goddamn is this a difficult lot to want to save.

with the ever-growing prevalence of the internet, i'd say the supposed "culture war" you're talking of has less to do with location and more with shared ideas via viral media

they're all probably wiped from complaining about things on tumblr until the wee hours

Oh yeah no doubt. It's just they mostly went to universities or small liberal arts colleges in New England and I can't shake the feeling that had something to do with it. They were so full of life when I last saw them five or so years ago.

And you say the culture war mostly happens online and you're right, but then stuff like this[1] and HWNDU happens.



It's incredibly stupid but they really did say it to their face faggot not online and saw what happened.

I dunno about you guys but honestly I really fucking hate talking about politics because most of the time things get extremely heated and it just sucks out any joy I might have had before the discussion. Not that I don't agree that discussion isn't important for helping being informed and having more sharply defined views, but most of the time it's just basically ranting about people like "the liberals / SJWs" or "Trump voters / conservatives / white people" as if they're the fucking boogiemen. The vid you posted is pretty hard to watch, but I can't say I'm surprised by the fact that it actually happened. Our immediate judgement and treatment of people are basically just putting them into boxes that either align or not with our views, and look where it's fucking getting us.

I would never invoke my actual political opinions in a conversation with old friends for risk of mortifying them or ruining our friendship, but I was at the very least interested in their perception of the world from a recently graduated college educated liberal yuppie point of view. They still presumably knew me as a liberal and general relativist and I'm surprisingly good at flying under the radar with my opinions. Maybe they saw through me. Their only clue that I was no longer one of them was my not having gone to college and being a fair sight poorer than them.

Scenes like the one at Berkeley I think arise due to a lack of willingness to have meaningful dialogue, combined with irreconcilable differences in life experience and probably aesthetics.

They also excel at removing signs and self-awareness:

Alright. Apologies for my little vent there.

Anyway, I can't personally speak from the perspective of someone familiar with New England college life, but from what I've seen, the liberal leaning folk I see on my feed tend to be much more outspoken and passionate / riled-up / self-righteous about their views. I can say the same for some of the conservative people I see online too, but typically the conservative leaning folk do tend to be a bit more "jokey" about how they respond to perceived liberal idiocy, which probably helps lighten things up for them I guess. You can kinda see it in situations where something like a NowThis or Young Terks video about someone like Tomi Lahren, where they're definitely trying to pull them apart in an argumentative way, whereas a similar video from the other side is usually edited in a jump-cut comedic way. Spending so much time with negativity without a way to really cool down does tend to pull people down.

So basically what Blu said.

Yeah I didn't really make my position clear. That's an accurate assessment I think though. A lot of alt-right rhetoric was born on humor websites in the first place.

Got any stories of people letting their political freak flags fly and ruining friendships?



Related and also topical. Gwoemul is about a monster that attacks Seoul and kidnaps a man's daughter, but the media are too busy creating hysteria over a virus outbreak to bother reporting on it.
