I'm genuinely puzzled, seeing lots of stuff go by on social media about gay purges, torture camps, family members being shoved off appartment building balconies after coming out, etc but the sources are all dubious at best (pinknews wtf?) retelllings of third hand acconts by "anonymous survivors" ???  Are all the foreign press just not doing their jobs (or lack ressources)? Or is this story all bullshit?

I have no idea, but I've follow the leader's Instagram for over a year now, and I swear every single post is about male strength and/or the country's equivalent of MMA fighting. It's very bizarre.

Much like how the mainstream media has largely been ignoring Yemen, it seems that they've devoted no resources to this situation either.

And Venezuela.
Argument, the presentation of reasonable views, never makes headway against conviction, and conviction takes no part in argument because it knows.
