re Tumblr and Masto culture
why is it that Tumblr culture encourages so much hate, and why have they brought that toxic bullshit here?
Is it irrational fear? Because fear sells? Or is it some trolls manipulating people (and if you don't think trolls can't do that, I show you literally ALL OF HISTORY)

I mean you can trace the toxic black and white angry culture, indirectly, to three main sources imo:
1) people imitating orgs like the Black Panthers, but not really having any direction, because they're milquetoast militants
2) offshoots of American Communist culture, a long-known toxic hellhole riddled with FBI moles deliberately causing schisms to destroy it
3) influential cause trolls, who found an angry disenfranchised population of angery adolescents
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.
