Now we’re blaming accessibility and the state.

This is a very weird and hilarious rabbit hole of chest thumping, collectivism, projection and deflected accountability.

It’s pretty judgmental to call this a “weakness”.

Touchy subject?
Youíve not only raised an argument against a position I never held (grossly misrepresenting my position), youíre taking it to an extreme exaggeration with a made up plot.
