I could blockquote any part of this typically excellent essay from SK, but out of context doesn’t do it. So, I’ll take a snip from the final part but by all means give it a read. I like it when someone says what I’m thinking, but does it so much better than I think I could say it:
We have become a people who pretend to oppression, who scream in outrage at the slightest of imagined offenses, solely in order to drown out the anguished cries of those who are the true victims of tyranny, inequality, and injustice.
Outrage isn’t the opposite of calm, it’s the savage antithesis of reason.
And far too many of us have given up on making the world a better place.
