I’ve noticed when I’ve been out traveling, knowing there’s a portion of the population who thinks they’re still in solitary confinement, I feel obligated to have extra fun for them. Like somehow, they’ll have second-hand fun when I talk about my experience, and they’ll crave freedom. Plus being incredibly kind helps people not fuck with me about mask shit.

Being kind irl is my default because life is much better that way. Empathy is taking a beating out there and it is too important to civilized society.

Yes, same. You’re absolutely right, empathy is on life support right now. We all know the system is designed to demoralize everyone so why participate in fueling that?
