Hahah no that’s great! Yes, I too used to be a raging SJW liberal I never realized what an ideologue I was back then. I’m pretty conservative now, basically a libertarian.
Sometimes it is annoying in the sea of blue, but really I am a bit of a rebel at heart so I actually enjoy it in a weird way sometimes.
Kudos to you for keeping your mind independent! It’s ok to pretend sometimes, too. It’s scary how damaging it is to just express opinions which go against the grain. Like if you said something “wrong” totally unrelated to science, it could hurt your career path as a scientist. There was a speaker where I work and people wanted to disinvite him him from speaking because of views he had unrelated to what he was speaking about. This was a major career scientist too. It was actually chilling. The really ironic part is that liberals still think they are the ones fighting the machine, but they have no idea they are the Borg now. It’s kind of sad.
What is rpw? And no it’s never too early or too late for jokes
