If there is a country that has committed unspeakable atrocities in the world, it is the United States of America. They don’t care.
And honestly, some of the nicest people I know are also the most critical, so … that was always a false dichotomy. Calling people on bullshit is actually doing everyone a service, so who’s not nice now?
There’s a difference between being an asshole and being a critic (I do both, for the record). Children (or people who think like them) can’t tell the difference, and those with a stake (i.e., shareholders, hucksters, etc.) desperately want you to conflate the two.
I guess I just assumed that video player technology would improve as time went on?
