The Internet is such a bizarre rabbit burrow of ideas. I came across the term: “Intellectual Dark Web” while skimming a Jacobite article providing an assessment of the “movement”. The article pointed to an aggregating website, which in turn links to guides like, “How to join the Intellectual Dark Web — a user’s guide.”
I suspect this is something that will gain some mindshare. On first blush, it seems like horseshit. But, I thought I’d post a note to look a little deeper later.
Nothing wrong with the wanting a space for the free exchange of ideas, particularly unpopular ones. But, intellectual and dark implies quite a bit more, as if a negative light shines through the ends of the Overton Window.
Sounds like bunkum and flimflam, but even error has its uses.
