Hey koncept... you wonder why he didnt tell them to leave and let them ramble on for 30 minutes at his work?
When you fade, you willfully stay within the system of the dubs. You certainly have a diminished presence at the hall but make no mistake you are still a part of the system... You are still not making waves, still trying to make nice with everyone, still "waiting on jehovah" to change the stance on "inactive, df and da'd ones" All these things are expertly instilled in you at a very young age as a jdub and as a fader you are applying them flawlessly.
Fading does not make you a good or bad person, it just makes you not true to yourself.
