I don't know if this is the right place to ask so feel free to move this thread somewhere else if it should belong to somewhere else. I'm going to attempt to articulate the points I want to make and the direction we're going in on the general discourse. I've been seeing people, even in my workplace, going with the mantras of "Everything is political", some just ignore them but they get to an extreme point where it's like "Pick a side. Either you are with us or against us". I'm sure these people don't reflect your values.
The problem is this. Democracy of the majority dictates rule over the minority. I lived under the type of situation where these types of people control everything from what's allowed to speak and what not, to the point where they want the power to be able to arrest you for basically disagreeing with you and that happened to me.
So if you have no platform, no voice, no ability to defend yourself from accusations and you are the minority, How you are supposed to defend yourself in a social situation when the majority doesn't see it the way you do? (in Real Life, I'm not talking about Internet fights) Because if you don't have a voice you have no power.
