I could have used 2 further machines, but forgot to setup ssh, Teamviewer or any other remote control on them.
The digitalisation of the world and the Internet changed the rules in many, if not all, fields. One major change I just realised is the loss of attribution. I often made these errors when in contact with opinions that I didn’t share. When it came to my personal views and groups I feel associated to, I felt mistreated or misunderstood if people made general claims about such group. Before the internet it was relatively easy to attribute an action or statement to an organisation, such as a political party or a state.
