If you’ve ever had a mother, do not enable those who would diminish her.
She is not less because she is she.
If you’ve ever had a lover, do not empower those who would control who that should be.
You are not harmed by he and he.
There is no “other”.
There is only you, and there is only me.
We are one planet, one species.
One finite set of resources to be shared fairly.
There is no planet B.
Please try to do something today – every day – that makes the world a better place on average. Think about how to reduce the waste you will leave behind for other humans when you die: wasted energy, wasted heat, wasted materials, wasted time, wasted hate.
If you have a vote, use it. Somewhere in history someone almost certainly died so you could have it – even if they were merely the slaves of your entitled ancestors. Use your vote and use it carefully. Wisely. Responsibly. You can not give a mandate to a group that has not declared its policies: what if you are their next “other” to be victimised, abused, blamed, denied, degraded, diminished?
History shows that any doctrine based on unfairness is doomed to fail as the victims will always resist. It may take time, but it is inevitable. Only equality and kindness can lead to stability for generations to come. Do we need to work through the fever of worldwide conflict again as those who remember the truth about last time have almost all completed their journeys with us? Or can we use our wisdom and experience to inoculate against the spread of hate before it takes hold again? Withdraw your support from the hate sluices and from the mechanisms that treat you as data to be sold to them. If you have a moral compass, make sure it’s pointing the right way and not being pulled off course by some superficially-attractive monopole inside a spinning blackhole of self-serving contempt for others masked behind the rhetoric of the “other”.
