taking a new direction

I've changed the subtitle of this blog to "seeking the best of all possible worlds". I plan to make that change significant. Like anyone who has ever trolled, mobbed, or flamed, I've suffered from Siwoti syndrome because I thought the only way I could make a difference was to identify lies and errors where I found them. It's time to accept that disinformation can never be defeated—some people will always believe that Al Gore claimed to have invented the internet—and move from identifying problems to seeking solutions. Yes, they're related, but focusing on the first will destroy you, and the second will save you.

  1. The optimist exclaimed, "This is ALREADY the best of all possible worlds!"

    And the pessimist replied glumly, "I'm afraid you may be right."
