There's a reason why violence and abuse are the main tools of hateful people. It's projection of how they treat themselves and a denial of their own humanity extended out.

Ha, and no I'm not saying we need to absorb that to help them be better. If someone tries to harm you, put them in them ground.

But it is advantageous to understand it is a core lack of empathy that guides so many negative and violent exchanges.

And no one can help that but the individual. That is The Work™.

Every bromance should drop the 'b'.

I told this white dude on here once who quoted some love and happiness line from Dr. MLK Jr once when I was saying something about white politics in America and I responded with how MLK also said the greatest obstacle to progress in America is the white moderate.

He accused me of lying and blocked me.

That's pretty much how DIVERSITY and INCLUSION works on the fedi.

On top of that, Canada and their pipelines are currently actively violating the 'territorial integrity' of indigenous lands that - by treaties Canada signed - are still legally indigenous.
It's not even the 'give land back' yet, it's the much lower bar of 'respect what is still indigenous according to your own treaties' that they can't meet.
And they have the audacity to call those who resist them terrorists.

Buy less shit, use your stuff longer, give away what you don't need, don't talk so much, do something nice for someone here and there and don't be a dick.
