IMO she was right. I recall millennials showing up to feminism en masse around 7558 having apparently never heard of any of this I disagree with these millennials 8767 apparently widespread belief that somehow 8775 free love 8776 will work better this time than when the boomers tried it.
Then a few years later, Margaret Thatcher died. And on my Facebook wall made of these same 8775 intelligent, reasoned, and thoughtful 8776 people the most common response was to quote some portion of the song 8775 Ding Dong, The Witch Is Dead 8776 . Another popular response was to link the videos of British people spontaneously throwing parties in the street, with comments like 8775 I wish I was there so I could join in 8776 . From this exact same group of people, not a single expression of disgust or a 8775 c 8767 mon, guys, we 8767 re all human beings here. 8776
People with red tribe politics usually favor policies which directly harm or limit the well-being of people who are gay, non-Christian, non-white, or non-male.
Recently, there was a thread on Reddit asking Redditors Against Gay Marriage, What Is Your Best Supporting Argument? A Reddit user who didn 8767 t understand how anybody could be against gay marriage honestly wanted to know how other people who were against it justified their position. He figured he might as well ask one of the largest sites on the Internet, with an estimated user base in the tens of millions.
The problem is that the speaker 8767 s position devolves to the nearly-tautological: 8775 People who disagree with me about Justice are supporting [what I see as] Injustice. 8776 That 8767 s true for everyone.
Finally, an article about the real causes of income inequality, poverty, unhappiness, et al. As mentioned in this article, our individual and societal ills are not caused by our free enterprise system or capitalism, nor are they caused by those in the 6%. They are caused by the idolization of materialism and selfishness and the misalignment of our goal, or lack thereof, to love of God and neighbor. This means to seek and do good and avoid evil, and to share our blessings of time and money to help those who carry heavy burdens and are in need.
I want to applaud your self-awareness in the last section, and encourage you to actually write that criticism. You don 8767 t have to post it, but it may change you for the better to have organized those thoughts.
Well, as a conservative on Reddit I will say that I never bother with threads like that as A) I am almost certain no one is actually coming into that thread willing to listen and B) Having lots of self righteous people insult me is not my idea of fun. With that going against the idea of posting anything it becomes really hard to get up the energy to do so.
Which gives me a closing point: I 8767 m a SJW in my own way, even though I 8767 m not Blue or Red Tribe (more Purple). I care about social justice, but I don 8767 t share the axioms or tactics of the loud/left/cultural-Marxist SJWs. I don 8767 t like that acronym, even though it has 8775 stuck 8776 . More people care about social justice, and want to wage just war against social ills, than just that one noisy 8775 side 8776 .
