Interesting thread. I’ve come to the realisation that this is the main cause of my middle aged anxiety. Work, relationships, moving house, all seems insignificant to my concerns that the world is turning upside down and i can no longer rely on the safe bubble of suburban Liverpool or inner city London, both places where alt right and far right are nowhere to be seen. Social media and exposed them to me and now I can’t avoid them. also, thanks for various world leaders and the rise of populism, it’s become trendy for liberal and centrist media to pick out every horrible little thing that these scumbags are doing and drop it into my news feed every day. It’s depressing. HuffPost, CNN, Independent et al were my ways of keeping up and now I just get sad reading them. thank God for the BBC frankly. It might be bland and safe and tip toey but it’s the only neutral platform out there (and I won’t listen to people who say the BBC is biased. I’ve had that conversation on Facebook too many times).
