End of my Parler Experiment 

So I deleted my Parler account and the app last night. Not because of negative experiences yet (above how terrible the network already is) but more because I didn't want to end up at a point where it started to affect my MH or life otherwise.

There were some cool people and hilarious troll accounts. Hell there were even some comments from Republicans that I could appreciate. But I just felt it was a matter of time before I logged in on the wrong day or in the wrong mental state.

One thing is for sure. 90% of people on there have no idea what Socialism is or why they hate it and it has become the devil to their god of Conservatism (which they also have no real idea what it is or why they defend it so adamantly).

@devrandom Thanks for doing this. I was tempted to give it a spin, but one can only wade in the muck so much.

@docskrzyk it truly was as terrible as people warned. I wasn't surprised as I also tried Gab back in the early days but being the stubborn person I am, I always have to see for myself.

@devrandom the best explanation of the Socialism thing I've heard was that it's like how for some people all game systems are "a Nintendo"; any program that uses taxes for the public good is "a Socialism"
