@hhardy01 @directhex ...And I'm one for posting & retweeting politics all the time on Twitter. It's important, and important to me too. I'm not self-censoring here, I (and others) just like having a cozy place to relax and talk about other stuff usually.
But it's still flexible and people can post what they want. Perhaps I'm just following a subset of people who are like this. Perhaps there are a lot more politics share un-CW-'d across the Mastodon/Fediverse. 🤔
Ever wonder what "good Germans" were doing while children of ethnic minorities were denied citizenship rights, taken from their parents, and put into concentration camps?
While the country's leaders subverted the rule of law and substituted a personality cult around a crude would-be dictator?
While fascist thugs beat and even killed anti-fascist demonstrators in the streets while police stood by or attacked the anti-fascists themselves?
You're doing it now.
I'm not self-censoring here either, I just enjoy the silly atmosphere and the escape from 99% politics & crappy news all the time that Twitter turned into.
Not everything has to be bad news and politics all the time.
Also: I know my history, live in Germany, and am an American who speaks up loudly against the bad stuff going on in the 'States.
