thanks for sharing! I really liked this article because it resonated with the quiet admiration I have for a few of my friends who ‘are themselves on the internet’ very well. authenticity is difficult in a world where virtual reputations are built and real opinions are torn apart. I’m still trying to get a grasp on it myself! also, both china and north korea are guilty of information manipulation, as are mostly social media platforms in the us. the best way I’ve come across to combat this is to let real, foot-to-ground experience and conversations guide your beliefs.
