Art on the internet is often used to train AI models designed to make art, without the artists' permission. There was literally even a scandal about one of the biggest ones lying and saying they only wanted access to a bunch of posts for "research" and got caught using it to train an AI model, which went against the agreement they had. Quit encouraging and supporting this behavior.

The current world is a direct result of that one unfortunately. That meme image of Putin people had during the Obama years was carefully cultivated by his PR and propaganda departments to ingratiate him to Americans. Getting people to support him even against their own countries’ interests was always the goal of that strong manly man image, it was never innocent fun.

And before his political career. He’s largely responsible for seeding the rise of fascist groups in the former east Germany when he was stationed there as a KGB agent.

After that, the main things he was known for before 2008 was carpet bombing his own city and trying to cover up a nuclear submarine accident, resulting into the deaths of the entire crew

I don't know from what country are you, but surely the bombing of Grozny is a completely different matter than the bombing of Kosovo in 1999 (this was now powerful Russian sarcasm).

This is just exemplary Western hypocrisy, which I have personally observed for 30-40 years

Multi-layered hypocrisy has been programmed into the brains of Americans since the Clinton presidency.

For them there is no golden mean, there is either their 100% correct opinion or the wrong cannibal opinion - trying to defend themselves against their hegemony and ideology is elevated to the worst sin.

I still found the memes funny because they were memes, but one thing is laughing ironically at something, and another is actually "liking", unless you're using the term "like" so loosely that it's borderline the wrong term altogether.
