This is handy when facing social discord online, especially for those accounts claiming to resist being coerced.

Fundamentally there is a “battle” of identity going on, where all the posts are at a surface level. They may change like a facial expression, while the underlying person is anchored in value judgments.

If you connect to the values and emotions, the fears and loves, you will connect and reduce the surface level noise designed to keep outsiders out (false logic, like hot oil being poured off castle walls).

When no connection is made, withdraw. The gates are closed.
