a friendly reminder

Kai Brach, Dense Discovery:

Here's a friendly reminder: if you feel disheartened by the state of the world, pretty much anything is more effective than sitting in front of your computer and pouring fuel on the dumpster fire that is social media politics. Go volunteer for a cause you believe in, donate money, write a letter to people in charge to express your disapproval, have a (real life) conversation with friends or family who disagree with your opinion, heck, even reading a book on issues you feel strongly about – all of those things are more productive than revving up the rage by helping your side shout louder into the digital void.
