And honestly, it feels like it’s so little. Like it’s just a message that needs to reach people. That they just need to realize that everyone else is people, with their own stories and truths and problems and aspirations, being enemies is pointless, we all have to live together, and we’re better off truly letting everyone be. That it’s a small price to pay, a tiny sacrifice, for so much to come. Like we’re on this brink of succeeding, and really well at that.
But convincing people that they’re being tribal and irrational, that they’re getting into pointless wars and that they’ve dig themselves into lies for decades? Making them feel like they’re being blamed for their own issues, and that they’ve harmed other people in ways they thought were stupid and fake victimism? You might as well move a mountain range on your own.

Blame the intern...
If an intern with a bad password can do damage to your company, you have serious issues.
I hope someone could see this and share some experiences about how I'm supposed to grief. How I can enter into active grieving and guide myself through the process. Or maybe lead me to resources that write about it in depth.
Boosts are appreciated but not neceesary. Thank you.
