Nazis are bad, mmkay?
Godwin (of Godwin's Law) recently tweeted at twitter.com/sfmnemonic/status/… : "By all means, compare these shitheads to Nazis. Again and again. I'm with you."
There's an old saying:
Avoid rather than check,
Check rather than harm,
Harm rather than maim,
Maim rather than kill.
If a nazi is about to kill somebody, it's moral to use violence to check their actions. If nazis are going to kill lots of somebodies, it's moral to use lethal violence to defend against them.
Fortunately, I live in an area where violence isn't in the immediate future. Which means I can focus on those few fields where my actions may be able to make a long-term difference. Having any chance at making a difference there means I need to think very hard on those things. I have little enough time to do any good that I shouldn't waste it arguing about topics as basic as 'the sun goes around the earth' or 'bigotry is bad'. So if you think 'liberal', 'SJW', or 'cuck' are insults worth throwing around, or if you think one sex or race or gender or sexual orientation deserves more rights than another, or if you are so convinced of some idea that no amount of evidence could possibly convince you otherwise; then I would appreciate you letting me know, so that I can apply whatever block/ban/ignore buttons are available.
And to everyone who falls under the LGBTQQIAAP umbrella - and remember, one of those 'A's stands for 'Allies' - welcome. Please feel free to chat about anything, from questions on my various amateur scribblings about people being reshaped, to asking for advice on how to maintain privacy online, to pointing out how silly I am for any of my quirks.
