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.

Wonderful article on Africa

This is an EXCELLENT article on a subject I’ve discussed often.

Africa is the moral salvation of the world.

The article is mainly about Africa’s Catholics, who are REAL Catholics. I love good graphs, and the article is packed with meaningful and clear graphs, including some animations showing how Africa is turning more Christian while the rest of the world is losing faith.

The author is justifiably complaining that while Africa has 20% of all the Romans, and Africa is the only living and growing part of the Roman world, Bergoglio is intentionally removing African cardinals from the Vatican. No surprise there.
