increasing the social cost of reactionary politics works. some of them maybe will keep doubling down forever — making their own, more racist version of nascar now that they banned a driver for saying the n-word, a more racist version of that, and so on, until it's just one guy driving around in a bicycle car and yelling slurs — but a far larger portion will get demoralised and either accede or actually start to reconsider their politics

This place is a message... and part of a system of messages... pay attention to it!
Sending this message was important to us. We considered ourselves to be a powerful culture.
This place is not a place of honor... no highly esteemed deed is commemorated here... nothing valued is here.
What is here was dangerous and repulsive to us. This message is a warning about danger.
The danger is in a particular location... it increases towards a center... the center of danger is here... of a particular size and shape, and below us.
The danger is still present, in your time, as it was in ours.
The danger is to the body, and it can kill.
The form of the danger is an emanation of energy.
The danger is unleashed only if you substantially disturb this place physically. This place is best shunned and left uninhabited.
he/him, they/them as you please.
