"What profit is there in agreeing that universal friendship is good, and talking of the solidarity of the human race as a grand ideal? Unless these thoughts are translated into the world of action, they are useless.
The wrong in the world continues to exist just because people talk only of their ideals, and do not strive to put them into practice. If actions took the place of words, the world's misery would very soon be changed into comfort."
Half-baked take of the day: A social network is only as good as its collective ethos.
In other words, a mish-mash of randos with wildly varying intentions and contradictory ethical foundations is very different from a mish-mash of randos who share some kind of common purpose and guiding beliefs. #ethics
@blackjacktony How's it going good sir?

Making some tweaks to @xyzzy, as usual.
