I made a September 2018 Mixtape: https://elanmorgan.com/blog/elan-september-2018-mixtape-playlist. It crosses a few genres and decades, and you can listen on both Spotify and Apple Music. #music #playlist #mixtape
I need to get past feeling HULK SMASH every time someone says that no one has any privacy anymore so you may as well keep handing your info over.
YOUR FEELING OF SECURITY IS AN EXTENSION OF PRIVILEGE.
JUST BECAUSE PRIVACY THIEVES ARE NICE NOW DOESN'T MEAN THEY'LL BE NICE LATER.
WE DON'T HAVE TO LIVE LIKE THIS.
In my early 20s, a psychiatrist told me I had anxiety. I said that I'd heard the word, but I couldn't grasp what it meant, because the feeling was so foreign to me. He said it was the water I swam in, which is why I couldn't see it. Then I saw it, and I could start a growth process I desperately needed.
Sometimes you have to step out of the water, or find someone who can lend you a hand to step out of it.

Man y'all ever think about how incredibly stupid it is that the internet is almost entirely financed by advertising. Like, imagine if busses were only paid for using the revenue from bus ads. And if not enough people looked at the ads for Target or a legal firm specializing in slip-and-falls, then their bus route stopped existing. How stupid would that be. That's basically what we're doing right now, but with online.
