I'm just a soul whose intentions are good
And I know I will be misunderstood
Yesterday I observed Substack was somewhat skin to Underground papers. On the other hand it also has an amusing resemblance to BBS and FB. I hoped for deeper discussions and dialogue, a fantasy since those college seminar classes and my cafe days. I am finding for instance mild or even deep disagreement provokes mixed responses depending on the Stack. Not infrequently hostility is provoked from stipulating with reasons why x is not the case from my view. People prefer agreement. Or they prefer only the opinion go unchallenged. Twas the same 30 years ago on BBS and on FB today. Tis true of the Body Politic as well if one is surrounded on all sides by Partisans. Free speech is always unwelcome. Look at Socrates.
