Is endmyopia (the site) too weird?
Various mainstream journalist friends, as well as tons of random e-mails with complaints about the obscure humor, massive rants, and outrageous allegations about optometry.
My take is that part of the point of endmyopia, and being figuratively and literally vision-deficient, is rooted in too much TRUST in institutions that aren’t meant to benefit us. “I don’t find this trustworthy” is a huge pet peeve for me, and every time I hear it I want to make the site less trustworthy.
Don’t trust, I want to shake people. Question things! It’s like we live in a world of consumer-religions, instead of science-based inquiry. Trust the doctor, trust the professors, trust the corporations, trust the politicians.
Has the hippie-ness here gone too far from normal people’s sensibilities?
Example, current home page: http://endmyopia.org (lolz)
Is that too much, though? Is it doing endmyopia a disservice, starting out that hard core? Should the entry point be a bit more vanilla?
