"if we make the internet better comparatively, would we only be encouraging people to withdraw from it and to make it worse in turn, or does it make people happier, and therefore overall nicer irl etc?"

one of the things i haven't appreciated about general anarchist writings is their continued dependence on demonizing safety valves and lighter forms of therapy. If you start doing to much damage to the institutions that anarchists are against, you probably won't eliminate it, and the harm you do to those institutions will only hurt you.

Part of better using the internet is realizing the basic problems with it, and also seeing that ways in which RL is better and worse.
