"Those who didn’t live through or participate in the BBS era likely equate being online with hyper-connectedness, which feels more and more like a corporate-sponsored illusion every day.

cop violence on journalists
just watched a video of a clearly marked journalist getting shot with rubber bullets. the cop took intentional aim with no verbal warning at her and the camera man while they were live and rolling
this man looked directly into a camera, aimed his rifle and shot, while knowing he was being filmed, because he knows he can do that
cops have no conscience
