When given lemons, make lemonade. Those on the (Far) Right complain, with justification, about the hypocrisy of being deplatformed from Twitter and other social media platforms, while those on the (Far) Left are kept on, despite outrageously radical, racially inflammatory, and cheerleading-about-leftist-violence tweets and posts.

“Are there two forces in nature?” So mused Private Witt in the opening scene of Terence Malick’s poignant classic, The Thin Red Line.
