It is now 2017 and it’s time to stop assaulting your peers with your “superior” moral values. You’re not doing it to save the world, you’re doing it to make yourselves feel important at the expense of others.
There’s a difference between stopping powerful people from doing bad things, and bullying people you disagree with. You are not saving the world when you spray an unarmed political rival with mace, or ruin a man’s life over a t-shirt he wore, or harass a game designer for not adhering to your personal views. You cannot improve society through fear, arrogance, or irrationality, no matter how righteous you believe you are. You cannot call yourself progressive, then justify unfair treatment of others when it happens to a demographic you have beef with — that is called hypocrisy. You cannot champion free speech while trying to suppress your enemies.
It doesn’t matter what youve been through, or what you THINK you’ve been through. It doesn’t matter what your intentions are. When you go around preemptively weaponizing your grief or your politics against others, you have officially become the bad guy. You aren’t saving the world, you’re throwing it further into chaos.
Just treat people how you wanna be treated, and listen to what they say instead of just reacting to it. It’s not that goddamn hard.
