A random morning thought: existence of one extreme view warrants the existence of the opposite one.

Take Facebook with their complete lack of respect for privacy, and Apple who took an exactly opposite approach by selling you $1000+ smartphones where “caring about your privacy” is just a selling point.

Take conservatists and liberals, with bitter polarised viewpoints, often marching against each other, sometimes reaching violent points.

It’s easy to crush, divide, overlook what connects us, quickly make up one’s mind.

It’s harder to bring scattered pieces together.

We’re a violent species, peace (of mind) doesn’t sell well to us.
