I wanted to let you know that I sometimes unfollow people if their content is too much for me to handle, in terms of energy or just emotional investement, and refollow if I can handle it again. I'm often on here when I'm really tired, and I never mean it personally.
I have also unfollowed people before for radical political views and/or drama surrounding them. But all these unfollows aren't related to your character, or my opinion of you, just how I handle content.

Also you can't just leave a country whenever you want when you're disabled for example. It always amazes me how people just assume that if something is shit where you live, just leave. That will solve your problems. It's actually not an option for a lot of people, and even then, risks and expenses outweigh the benefits. So most people never return back as well, it's a known problem in poorer countries. Saddening and makes you feel powerless in terms of the future of diff. communities.
so I guess the most nonthreatening thing you can say on fedi is that migration is always good? you can't criticize it because it's instantly tied into some internet nazism?
I don't like hearing about edge cases in response to this. We all know edge cases of terrible autocratic governments, inability to learn a living on your own land etc. This can not be compared to everyone wanting to leave for Germany, USA or England to have a "better" job, just because. Do not conflate the two
me: it's sad that ppl are leaving my homecountry en masse and it's getting worse, whilst i still have hope maybe things will change, and I would't want to leave forever because i want to help faciliate those changes. brain drain is a sad thing as well

I guess this was my most controversial post then
I would also leave for a university, but return afterward. I don't think it would make much sense to do otherwise.
It's easier to establish yourself in a smaller country and more rewarding once you're one of the "few" people who are brining beneficial changes and something new and useful to the country, rather than leaving and never coming back. Maybe it's too much of a "conservative" viewpoint from me, but whatever.
I don't think relocation/immigration is always the best option, especially if you're able to do something useful in your own country. I would rather live temporarily somewhere else to work in a place where I could learn something very useful about running my own similar business for example, then return to my country and establish a business here, than try to rebuild my life overseas. If everyone is leaving "worse" countries, what happens to them?
