You make a good point. But if a page falls in the forest and no body is there to read it, will irony fill in the blanks?

It seems to me that if a person were truly self-aware they would have a rich sense of humility unless that self-awareness consisted of thin ego, easily bruised and prone to deep self doubt and self hatred. A perfect vessel.

Forgiveness. More than just an act. An awareness. If in and of self; the power to heal.
Physicians, heal yourselves!

If a man has no true self-awareness then he has no inner voice, no humility, no forgiveness.
If he has only the awareness of ego then he is what is poured into him by all that surrounds, feeding his sense of providence. 

Witness history.

Trump Signs FOSTA 'Sex Trafficking Bill' Into Law. It's Already Changing the Internet For the Worse: Reason Roundup

The day the internet died? On Wednesday, President Trump signed "FOSTA" into law, making it a federal crime for websites or apps to host any content that "promotes" or "facilitates" prostitution. The mainstream media has roundly heralded the signing as a great step in the fight against sex trafficking, even as those involved in the sex trade have been sharing increasingly dire stories of how the new legislation is impacting their lives.

Twitter is currently filled with stories from sex workers whose livelihoods—and very lives—are being threatened by the shutdown of Backpage.com and other escort-advertising platforms in the U.S.



 

US Congress just passed HR 1865, "FOSTA", seeking to subject websites to criminal and civil liability when third parties (users) misuse online personals unlawfully.

Any tool or service can be misused. We can't take such risk without jeopardizing all our other services, so we are regretfully taking craigslist personals offline. Hopefully we can bring them back some day.

To the millions of spouses, partners, and couples who met through craigslist, we wish you every happiness!
