We are all activists

Whether you like it or not, you are being judged about your worldview. People who want to quietly leave politics out of it are being judged for non-participation. I have always been too timid to share my feelings publicly. I’ve hidden behind the excuse that I didn’t want to alienate people who might be fans.

The recent upsurge in activism has declared such slogans as “silence is violence.” That is a cool, catchy, rhyming slogan. I think silence might also include “I lack the depth to argue this issue and refuse to take or share my stance because I don’t want to incur the wrath of a left wing cancel culture or a right wing hate group.”

So, thank you for encouraging me to speak up. I’m bothered that I don’t have a choice in the matter and a little ashamed that I didn’t speak up sooner.

I hope I have something to say.
