My artwork "Aquatic Archaeology" was inspired by the inside of an IKEA lamp. https://www.deviantart.com/sylviaritter/art/Aquatic-Archaeology-644529573 #art #illustration #mastoart
I always love this park of my hometown
The Verge about "our" nazi problem:
Amelia #cat raptly watching a crow mess about with the gutter. There’s a bit of a Vermeer-ish aspect to the light.
I know ignoring and blocking Nazis is easy. I thought about this problem before when I noticed some of my Facebook friends, who were always very pleasant in real life, suddenly started posting Nazi shit. I thought about just unfriending them. That would have been easy. But instead I talked to them, pointed out flaws in their logic, and indeed sometimes changed their mind by that. It almost always made their opinions less radical and thus stopped them from radicalizing further.
Unpopular opinion: By blocking Gab, you’re helping Nazis. You’re creating a safe space for them where they are among each other, not having to face contrary opinions and being able to radicalize themselves without intervention or it being noticed and acted upon by others.
I’m German and we had and have plenty of Nazis to deal with. Isolating them from society didn’t help, it only made it worse and meant we didn’t notice how much they radicalized themselves until they started killing politicians
