Trolls Target Individuals But They Also Destroy The Public Square

Episode 3 of the Media Buddhi video series.

Dear friends,

Happy Thursday evening to you! Or Thursday morning. Or whenever you're reading this.

A few days ago, when my father asked me how I was doing, I was able to articulate something for the first time. Rather than the usual updated version of "I'm fine but the pandemic sucks", I found myself saying I was fine except for the "existential free fall due to the state of the public discourse." I didn't use those exact words, but something like it.

It felt good to admit as much, but there was also a part of me that said, "getting all emo eh? Get over it! Be a man!"

Which says more about my notions about masculinity than anything else.

My father agreed with me. He too has been feeling the effects. It was a good conversation.
