  1. An idea just came to me. Maybe you should try converting the audio into text. There’s a bunch of software that can do that, so you wouldn’t have to transcribe it yourself. That way people who are in public/ at work and don’t have earphones could just read.

    Just an idea.

          LOL. Well, to be honest she did make that recommendation. But it wasn’t until your comment that I actually set it up finally

    4chan and other obscure internet outlets exist because those people were forced, either directly or indirectly, explicitly or implicitly, from mainstream social media platforms. Then the average person never bothers to go to 4chan et al. and those toxic ideas flourish in relative private until they occasionally breakout into the public conscience in the form of some tragedy. But then again, the rest of us are so oblivious about the world around us that we often don’t notice our own family members’ cries for help on social media. So is there a solution? Probably not. But if we didn’t force people from Twitter, Facebook, Instagram or whatever because their views aren’t welcome, then maybe we’d be more aware of the world and people around us and occasionally stop a tragedy from happening.

  3. We all have to ‘choose’ whose ‘facts’ we ‘believe. Science has become a religion. Kate is obviously of the science religion. I happen to believe that certain researchers have ‘proven’ that ‘scientists’ are often biased and incorrect and that we have can’t blindly trust the government because they claim ‘science’. I put quotes because people need to see that as you so wisely say, a lot is truly unproven or subjective. The people who scare me are the people like Kate who think they are smarter than the rest of us. By the way, I went to college, too , and I research things, too. I have a little more life experience to base my beliefs on. Long live freedom of speech! But we need better mental health care. That is the bottom line. There are very messed up people out there who are not living in reality. It truly is not available to the majority of Americans.

      So that circles around to what I was saying PK. Either people are true believers or they are simply afraid to speak up. We all have our own life experiences that led us to where we are now. Those experiences good or bad are invaluable to what we eventually become. I believe that is the message from God…meaning that God gave us freewill because he knew that we have to believe for ourselves, not anyone else.

      You’ve written about your experiences and what led you to God. I have had my own experiences as well. If my experiences were taken from me or I was protected from myself, what reason would I have to believe?

      The message I get, from God is love. Which means to me to allow others to come to their own conclusions in their own time. It doesn’t matter what I believe just as it doesn’t matter what anyone else believes. Like raising kids, as hard as it is, you realize that you must step aside and allow your own kids to make their own choices and face their own consequences, or they may never learn. All you can do is be there for them and love them.

      Just as God tells us to love one another. Whatever is going to happen, will happen. All we can do in the end is be responsible for ourselves as individuals.

      I would love to help as many as possible, yet helping only goes so far, so all I can do is simply love them and allow them to make up their own mind.

      I can understand that this may seem as a lazy way, and maybe it is. All I can do is allow them to be who they are, since that is what I want for myself.

      This is not the only time throughout history where insane things have taken place, we have simply grown and along with our experiences we translate and shake our heads saying “what the hell has happened”?

      The more we buy into the hysteria, the more hysterical we may become.

          1. It’s nice to hear someone voting for freedom of responsibility and all that goes with that. That said, it sure is hard to watch your own kids struggle with real issues. :'(
            Btw, I also listened to some of #68. That one was almost a therapy session. I’m not sure what your day job is, but you’d make a good counselor.

              I just like to talk with people PK. I find it cathartic and invaluable to hear about other people and their experiences.
