the overwhelming majority of people have been successfully convinced that "politics" is when you make one extremely limited choice every 4-5 years. every other form of political action is a crime
if people genuinely believe that a fascist is in power, or that power is within a fascist's grasp, the rigorously correct moral choice is not to vote against whoever is most likely to defeat the fascist. the rigorously correct moral choice is to shoot the fascist with a gun
@garfiald Garfield never would shoot anyone. He would bore that individuum to death by watching Garfield to sleep all night and day.
@Frank_ that is true. Individual tactics may differ
on tactics (against fascists)
@garfiald I'm pretty sure that fascism both produces demagogues and draws them in from outside. So a fascist who gets anywhere near power almost certainly has a cult of personality that's ready to treat them as a martyr, possibly including a junior demagogue who could take over in their absence. Cutting off the head is necessary but not sufficient.
@garfiald that's not the only political thing
wanting human rights is also politics /s
@assdemon i'm kidding, btw
making fun of chuds who scream about "muh politics" every time a marginalized person says "hey please let me live a full life"
@garfiald in times of intense urgency, a call to a member of Congress might be required.
