Goes into places other tongues can't. Or won't.

I've always had a saying about this: "The Internet is forever. Until it isn't."I share your opinion of the enviable Balkanisation of the Internet and I’ve hit a brick wall trying to explain this to people. Most everyone is online seems obsessed with either crypto, cooming or consooming and expects the Internet will be a permanent fixture.
Way too many people ignore the tectonic movement under their feet as long as they can play their favorite games, jerk off to their favorite porn or farm crypto tokens all day. Meanwhile, the Internet itself grows ever more corporate and woke-friendly.
I've always thought we'll get dragged kicking and screaming back to the old AOL-style walled garden, only this time there's no way to access the wider Internet unless it's through clandestine means. I never thought I'd see people sleepwalk their way towards the garden.
