I don't have to wonder about what drives people to terrible actions.
I have COMMITTED terrible actions.
I have experienced virtually no legal action for such, likely never will (IIRC statutes ran out -- or the evidence is all gone, and either way I will confirm no details of anything).
As someone who has actually done terrible shit, I UNDERSTAND what drives people to terrible shit.
The terrible actions still need stopping, just like someone should have stopped me.
This is a Mastodon instance run by the Interlinked Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit devoted to eliminating discrimination. We are an instance that blocks authoritarian political violence, ultra-nationalism, fascism, the alt-right, Stalinism, and authoritarian ideology in general. It's intended to be a safe place for those tired of violent rhetoric as well as a place safe from discrimination.
