Funny you're trying to catch me in a contradiction while ignoring your own.
The arpanet is just a piece of technical crap, not a philosophical system. It's shit and we would be better off if it was gone. Meanwhile, I can use it (to a limited extent) against itself.
The 'performative contradiction' here would be for me to send a message claiming "The arpanet doesn't deliver messages", the message itself proving I'm wrong.
But using the US arpanet to tell you that the US is a fascist cesspool is no contradiction and there isn't any 'doublethinking' involved, sorry. See again my example about guns which you ignored by focusing on a side issue.
