• firaro I think it's arrogant, to act as though your subjective perception of this as a symbol of slavery is in any way objective. A large portion of people say "no, this doesnt represent slavery to me" and you have the hubris to call them wrong?! Your prescriptivism is not welcome here It is a core piece of me that every time something unique, of any significant value, is permanently destroyed my mind hates it. It feels as though it damages my very soul. This is my madness. And perhaps it is because of it that i absolutely hate those people that would destroy meaninglessly.
