Thomas Merton said “When I criticize a system, they think I criticize them—and that is of course because they accept the system and identify themselves with it.” Oh buy... Ol' Thomas Merton would not like social media. These platforms are horrible for this. If you say something... anything... it can be taken out of context and twisted against you. Here's a 100% true example from a friend's page. A memory post popped up about all the pets being adopted back in 2020, one of the only bright lights in that dark year. He said “I absolutely love puppies” someone on social media read that as “so, you hate cats?” he simply said he loves dogs.... never even MENTIONED cats!
