I'm not interested in trying to change the minds of racists. Their minds are made up. Willfully hateful and ignorant people don't change their thinking because someone explains that racism is wrong. And people who manipulate or exploit others for power or financial gain don't listen either. They don't have hearts. I am interested in one thing- winning. I am interested in building social movements that shift the balance of power, and that's it. Everything else is just noise. So please- join something. Volunteer for something. Show up for something, and keep showing up. Because ordinary people, when they unite, can beat the forces of evil. Yes, I said evil. Let me repeat it- we are fighting evil, and if we don't fight back, our society is going to continue to descend into chaos.

The Capitol policeman who died off duty committed suicide. This is on you Donald!

There are 56 new billionaires in the world now while people are losing their homes and jobs and homelessness is skyrocketing. These people got rich *because* of the pandemic, because of the suffering and dying of others. This world is fucking sick. If it makes me a socialist to say that I don't think people have the right to own more wealth than some entire countries do while there are starving children with no access to clean water or medicine at home AND abroad, I'll happily wear that label.

How have these people actually managed to start a conversation about free speech? A private company has absolutely nothing to do with free speech, and even if it did, there have always been limits on free speech. I'm pretty sure I'm not allowed to incite insurrection online, anymore than I would be allowed to distribute illegal forms of pornography. The way these people warp arguments and then refuse to listen to sense and just shout over the top of you all the time is so infuriating. I swear these people need shut in rooms and deprogrammed like they were a member of the Manson family, this is absolutely a cult, IMO.

In response to a confession. I saw the video, but that was before things flew completely off the rails. I mean after people stormed the Capitol, killed a cop, and beat another one into a coma.

I have always been very anti-religion because my own Christian-ish upbringing left me with so many issues. But I listened to a journalist talk about the value of ritual and community and I think he's right. People are alienated and it becomes extremely easy to radicalise the alienated. I also think it's why this eastern mysticism culture has sprung up, because we're seeking something. I think we need to find a way to foster community and purpose without falling into total anti-science rhetoric. We're social animals and when we feel cut off from our society, not only is it really bad for us, but as we're learning, it's fucking dangerous. Because there are plenty of nefarious groups who want to recruit people for really sinister purposes. I say this as a deeply introverted person who has felt very lonely, and I'm only now realising how much damage it has done me. I'm not defending these people it's horrible. I'm interested in HOW we try and prevent this getting worse.

In response to a confession. Haven't you seen the video? He was in hiding with his spawn, jamming to the song Gloria. They were celebrating the rioting, having a good ol time, watching it on the news. He is a disgusting man and he needs to go to prison.

When do the two Senators who won in the Georgia run-off election take their seats? This whole impeachment could happen in no time. TBH I love the idea of no pension, no secret service protection, no pardons and I agree with punishment for regurgitating the BS that the right wing nuts are pushing. He's been running amok for four years. Finally letting him know those four years meant nothing to us would be PRICELESS!

I am so tired of the terrorists and their supports yelling about the 1st amendment. The first amendment is not absolute. You do not have the right to yell fire in a crowded theater. Slander and libel are a thing because it's criminal to say things that are not true. And you are not allowed to incite violence. Alex Jones, Rush Limbaugh, and the like should be prosecuted and not allowed to spew complete falsehoods. It should have never gotten this far. Twitter and Facebook putting a tag on things that aren't true isn't good enough. Delete those posts and warn the people that share them that their account will be suspended if they keep doing it. And then delete their accounts if they don't stop. Enough.

If you can nominate and confirm a supreme court justice in a week, you can impeach Trump in 10 days. Do it. No pardons. No chance of him ever running for office again. No pension. No annual travel allowance for the rest of his life. Just get him out and let the indictments begin.
