It's not just the guys out there. It is us.
It is our belief in representative democracy, in the power of negotiations, diplomacy, international multilateral cooperation and contracts. It is who we vote for and what we stand up for. It is our engagement in the public space, in the community, and, FFS, maybe even 'on the internet'.
That said, I already withdrew from all larger social networks because I couldn't cope with the amount of polarisation. (And with the constant TL-stream of truely scary trumpism, brexitism, Front-Nationalism, and 'Merkel muss weg'ism. I came for fast news, I left when to much 'news' was turning into propaganda.) I went over to other outlets, and forums.
I think I will stop that, too. And I've been online for the better part of my life, since usenet and FIDO.
