Any Day

Yes, there are
sensitive snowflakes who can't take a joke
but I'd choose them over
jerks who go out of their way to offend
Any day.
Yes, there are
obnoxious feminazis
but I’d choose them over
misogyny
Any day.
Yes, there are
violent anti-racism groups
but I'd choose them over
systematic racism
Any day.
Yes, there are
immigrants who bring crime and backwards ideas with them
but I'd choose them over
a world of closed borders
Any day.
Yes, there are
slightly forced liberal messages in our entertainment
but I'd choose them over
entertainment that excludes
Any day.
Yes, there are
times when we exaggerate political correctness
but I'd choose that over
a world without sensitivity
any day,
We’re only humans
starting to figure out this social justice thing
Sometimes we take it too far,
but that only means we have to keep working on it
Every day.

    There is a difference between the bad things, bad thoughts and actions, that stem from either personal pain, humiliation and deprivation, or a conviction of the basic equality between people – and the bad things that are done because you believe you are entitled, just because you are of a higher order somehow (sorry, rather convoluted sentence). Which is why the equating of Communism with Nazism doesn’t sit well with me. The former has its (distant) origin in thoughts of human equality, no matter what; the latter in human inequality, no matter what. It may well be, though, that this makes Communism so much more dangerous.
    The side of the angels is a hard place for anyone to choose; it requires relentless fighting without weapons, and a combination of total self-confidence and total humbleness. – Well, they are angels, after all.
