mental health, emotion
Good to be aware of this:
Fear of missing out (#FOMO) is a social anxiety stemmed from the belief that others might be having fun while the person experiencing the anxiety is not present. It is characterized by a desire to stay continually connected with what others are doing.
USPOL, RBG, Your Cynicism
You cannot expect to do good without acting inside the system to triage, and working without the system to force change.
Both of these things matter.
Exercising your right to vote doesn't mean you are supporting the system, it means you are manipulating as best you can from within.
Exercising your right to protest, and force change by holding politico's feet to the fire? Just as important.
At this point if you are of the belief that not voting is a good idea, you are either a manipulated fool, or a mouthpiece trying to disenfranchise others.
Get over your ego, and go do both.
I'm not asking you to even like it. But know how you are leveraged, and maximize your free will.

Anybody know any wiki software that can federate besides FedWiki?
(which is brilliant but bewilders many people. I'm asking about something that offers topic and sub-topic navigation like a typical wiki, but where an instance created by one community can federate with instances created by other communities.
