Never expect anyone to solve a problem when their livelihood depends on that problem existing

    Imagine you were a leader of a "gender equality" group started as part of the 'metoo' movement?

    Now fast-forward and you're the one trying to discredit victims who have come forward with accusations. But not they are accusations against someone you work for.

    It's a perfect example of how activists so often end up unwittingly (or quite intentionally) perpetuating the very problem they claim to be against. Because they are hypocrites or their position, power and / or income depend upon that problem existing.

    The ones to watch are Activists who make a living by being such, problem solved, job gone. As bad are those who like the publicity and slight fame of being an Activist as much as, or even more than, the Cause itself.

    Certain XJW Activists against the Org. come to mind.

    We do NEED Activism on many fronts, as Governments, Corporations and Officials are loath to act where they should, or to act correctly. But Activists need to be motivated purely by a desire to see the proper outcome for their cause, not by narcissism or greed.

    Activism wears many faces.

    Personally, I consider participating here a form of activism.

    Climate change policy makers want to drag it on as long as they can. If they were expedient in drafting the policies they’d be out of a job. $1000 per hour zoom meeting in your pyjamas. Trips to meetings in the nicest locales on the planet in the fanciest of hotels. Gotta love the gravy train.
