Narrowing bandwidth works both ways

Still continuing from Kirn’s theme.

Self-defense in a digital world seems to require narrow bandwidths and digital responses. Ideally we should be able to shrug off false flags and intentionally crazy media. Some people can do it, but I can’t.

I tried it for a long time, and finally decided that I don’t have enough spare blood pressure or enough spare neurons to spend energy fighting the crazy shit. It’s easier to simply turn off the TV and radio, and avoid specific sources after they’ve proved to be false flags.

A few of these digitalized decisions may have been hasty and unfair. I’ve shut off subscriptions at the first hint of converging to falsity.

I feel some guilt about these possibly oversharp decisions, but again life is fucking short, and neurons are a finite resource. Too many times I’ve followed a false flag all the way into the convergence (as with Brexit and Trump) and realized too late that I had joined Satan’s workforce. I don’t want to let that happen again.
