Goodbye, social justice warriors, and farewell!

My work here is done. If anything related to the internet's outrage culture needs to be said, I'll say it at it's all one thing. As for the title on this post, it's not meant to be mocking. The warriors mean well. Meaning well, of course, is nothing—most of the worst things humanity has done were done by people who meant well. But we all make mistakes, and I hope the warriors will learn that the politics of rage only promote backlash—Robespierre and Joe McCarthy both failed. It's better to practice the politics of respect.

Peace.
