My last post has actually opened my eyes a lot. I had a conversation with a friend about my post, and while my original point about ‘seeing no change is tiring’ stands, I feel like I see something differently now. I see that I am in a minority, but more importantly that the majority are not idiots or catering to the lowest common denominator. Getting change and trying to overcome the cost to change in any arena is fucking hard work.
After the discussion my respect for all real minorities working for real-world change has risen a hundredfold. Questions of “how can they not see” or “how can they not want change” that comes across in real life issues every single day must be damn near insufferable. Here I am the minority of a stupid MMO mechanic’s club.
It’s a tough dichotomy to not only want change but also to assume that people content with what I want changed are not idiots. I’ve always believed that I have been mindful in life of my actions and their effects around me. Yet, I feel like my world view has been a tad solipsistic. And, I especially apologize for my McDonald’s and K-Mart comment.
Our hit counts tell me that I do better to share love, so that’s how I will keep on trucking. Thanks for reading our fine blog. Excuse the mess.
