Empathy is a practice.

I try to remember to practice radical empathy with the people I meet.

Sometimes it is hard. Today it was hard.

When I talk about our long range wireless, mesh networked, BBS research, it is hard for me to be empathetic to someone who responds "oh, yeah, hard to censor something like that."

It occurs to me that when the frozen peach brigade talks about freedom from censorship, what they want is freedom from moderation, and occasionally freedom from consequence.

They've never been censored. They don't know what that might look like.

Censor my ass, be a kind human being.

tl;dr= no fascists, no bullying, no doing fucked up shit. You know what that means. Otherwise a lot of us are socialists, leftists etc. Dont bully people either. Or start witch hunts.
