Me, I'm planning for a future in which people make posts online that may or may not have anything to do with the way they actually behave outside the blogosphere. I'm planning for a future in which people claim they're proposing solutions when they're just waving their hands around and who knows what they do in their spare time. I'm planning for a future in which a significant fraction of the people I talk to will be virtue-signalling because of how fucking good that feels to them. It's like a fucking drug.

What I care about is whether you can muster any data that backs up your assertions and proposals in a world in which we wish people behaved better than they do, but I don't plan on it.
