Whilst we disagree with some of what the social justice league say*, we really like this article which states ‘culture valuing niceness actively preserves fucked up power structures’. More people involved in the fight for social change should consider the points in this article. No one who is being oppressed should be told to prioritise confronting their oppressors in a ‘nice’ way. We’re tired of having arguments about certain tactics ‘inconveniencing’ or ‘annoying’ people. As for the risk of offending those that hold the very positions of privilege that we are fighting against? Hardly something we want to avoid.
*Mostly the idea that ‘ethical capitalism’ is in any way a desirable or viable thing to aim for.
