I was being semi-silly while also serious, poetically juxtaposing your superlative description of Facebook as a "walled garden" against the concept of the Overton window.

"Garden" sounds luxurious and peaceful. IMO, Facebook is like a modern mind-prison boob-tube, but stupider - akin to gladiators in the circus where it's supposed to be fun but really it's traumatic.
