There's a lot of people who I am (was?) friends with but they've made politics such a big part of their daily being its hard to be friends with them cos they can't not bring it up and try to prod or challenge you over it as if they expect you to agree, and polite ambivalence isn't good enough. To hell with your opinion, to hell with your experiences, to hell with who you are, if you don't agree you're not a "comrade". The commies and alt-furry(!?) dweebs on twitter are unbearable. It's okay to have an opinion even if its a weird one but your personal crusade is a travesty.
I used to be really big into international conspiracy (this was before Trump got crowned) but it all got so tiresome. When you get invested in such a thing you learn to see threats everywhere around you. You see the influence of "them" in all your buddies. I'm glad I quit. It's not healthy. It encourages people to build echo chambers with walls that continue to shrink.
