    "I have no hopes for the younger generation, if these are the men of tomorrow."
    - Aristoteles, ca. 300 b.c.

    Don't blame everything on social media, people are just dumb and weak. FB & Twitter went from a breeze of freedom in the arabic world, occupy-movement, umbrella protests to Trump, Duterte, Bolsonaro.. Even Erdogan, whilst blocking social media in turkey, uses is to create hype around him.

    I quit most services that Datamine me because I think they are way more dangerous for us and our society than they look like. I would like to use it actually but not in exchange for growing a platform where extremists get tools for suggestive advertising.
