We have seen the future, and it sucks.

Dopamine Puppets

2nd March 2017

Scott Adams is still having problems with Twitter.

Note: Twitter is hiding my tweets about politics from my followers, so I use the code word “kittens” in those tweets to beat their censorship bot.

I wonder whether his followers have a special hat? If not, they ought to.

When I was younger and dumber I thought I could transform unhappy people into happy people by giving them whatever they wanted, or fixing whatever they thought was broken. This approach worked approximately zero times. Once a dopamine addict’s alleged problem is fixed, the addict still needs the next high. So they magnify small problems into big ones just to feel something. Or they create a problem where there was none.

That explains a lot.
