YouTube recommended me a video "narcissist, sociopath, psychopath: how to spot the difference" and i just. no.

masto.jews.international is a Mastodon instance for Jews to conspire, socialize, and debate together. This is intended to be a pluralistic space, but it is also an internationalist, anti-capitalist, anti-racist and pro-diaspora community. Nationalistic, racist, and classist perspectives will not be welcome.
