on "I wish I could help with activism but my disabilities make it hard" (2/2) 

To my mind, the most urgently revolutionary thing people can do right now is to be kind. It implodes the whole capitalist framework of "rational self-interest", it dismantles the reward-punishment morality, it shows folk an alternative to life than the cycle of demeaning work and compensatory consumption. The same cycle is, very literally, burning the planet.

To paraphrase Srsly Wrong, we all have to deal not just with our trauma but with the echoes in our lives of collective historical trauma. When you show kindness to people, you create echoes of love which will reverberate in the same way.

The same goes to being kind to yourself, especially being kind to yourself about not being productive, including being productive with activist work. Activism can't be done capitalistically, we won't work-hard our way out of this.

Do things that feel good for you and others because they feel good, not because you earned it. If you hang out with friends, if you kiss gays in the park rather than working, you are the revolution.

@yourhero If that "freedom of speech" falls within our Code of Conduct than yes! Otherwise no but that's a very simple equation don't you think? :mortyderp:

Respect is far more important than this "freedom of speech" since is just a bs reason to offend everyone you like :ablobwink:

If you have an opinion that can also be talked on a nice way

when you have the largest military in the world by half an order of magnitude and you still feel insecure, that's called having a Military-Industrial Complex
