@matt I always said to my parents: "I am not interested in politics, but I have my opinion about it."
Due to my parents' involvement in politics, I know stuff at a deeper level, then the average person, which gave me advantage, judging what's going on. I also know about how media works (both traditional and new), so that helps too.
If you involve yourself with politics on any level, you just set up yourself in hell. Normal ppl don't go into politics. You can go insane.
I always voted ever since I could, but I will never ever ever go into politics. You have to sell your soul, your health. I saw people rapidly aging during one campaign. Only one!
And I live in a frakking small country! Being in politics, it's for special people.
If only it was as simple as left/right, but it isn't. One dimension isn't enough to represent a person's stance.
But I try to not do a politics that much. Sure, I have my opinions, but I just joke aroud when push comes to shove. Deeper discussions usually end in a clusterduck unless you know each other well, so I steer clear of those unless I'm shitposting
@matt significantly shifted to the left. Not sure if it's specifically related to COVID tho, might have happened regardless.
