Disagreeable me

I am not disagreeable. Really.

I don't go out of my way to find things to disagree with. I even try to avoid situations where people will be parroting things I'll disagree with. I want to get along with people, even if I'm not good at "going along to get along".

But, if-- in spite of my efforts-- I hear or see someone advocating rape or mass murder, should I spare their delicate little feelings by remaining silent?

What if they don't believe they are advocating such horrors? Should I avoid pointing out that is exactly what they are advocating by supporting government or cops?

I don't like disagreeing with people, but it's better than agreeing with them when they are being horrible. In that case, I wouldn't respect myself. So, if I seem disagreeable, it might be a good time to look in the mirror and notice what you are advocating. It might be that you are supporting disagreeable things which good people must disagree with.

Thank you for helping support

  1. What do you call killing billions of people in defense of their violence?

    I simply call it defense.
