A principle I like:
"Be the change you want to see in this world."
Less fond of it's little sibling:
"Berate people about the change you want to see in this world."
"Freedom is never voluntarily given by the oppressor; it must be demanded by the oppressed."
@House_of_Pears If the change you want is to storm the castle, then by all means rally your troops and storm the castle.
If you don't intend to storm the castle yourself, but think you're doing important work yelling at people about it on social media... we might have a disagreement. 😉
Or maybe not. Maybe you're really good at that! What do I know? 🤷
I like pears though. They're great.
I'm not sure exactly what You're trying to tell Me.
All I'm saying is that It's Real Nice to be a Good Person but You also have to, you know, stop Bad People.
For Example, Not being Sexist, Racist, Homophobic, Transphobic, etc. is Great but It's Important that You fight against People who are.
Am I making any Sense?
@House_of_Pears Sure, that makes sense. 😀
Although... rather than fight them, I'd rather convince them to just stop being stupid-heads.
Fighting isn't the only way, and in many cases definitely not the best way, to do that.
I'd love to end Everything peacefully but If in the Time I take to try and convince a Fascist to not be a Fascist, They end up hurting more People, I'm not sure It's worth It.
@House_of_Pears People are complicated.
Sometimes fighting is the best choice, the only choice.
And sometimes fighting is giving people what they want: an enemy.
I don't know your situation so I won't presume to tell you how to act. Feel free to ignore all my toots if they don't apply to your reality, it's fine.
We're on the same side.
