When someone's disagreeing with you one of the first things they'll do is to scream "why are you dragging POLITICS into this?!!"


I seriously struggle to understand how climate crisis is political.
Your home is on fire, dumbass, do you think that putting it off is political?

* fueled by all the ridicolous discussions about Tutanota team going on the protest on 20th and mentioning it in one of the emails. I really hoped for better feedback.

@charlag They say that with literally any subject that makes them uncomfortable to acknowledge. :blobshrug:

@charlag It's political because the companies that are bribing politicians would make less profit.

@charlag I've only just noticed the woman near him twisting her neck horror-movie-like to look at him, as if she's all "What the fuck did you just say, you filthy shit?" :blobastonished:

@charlag it’s got to be the third or fourth time I toot or retoot this one 🤣

What if it's a big hoax to create an imaginary better world, that fits everyone's hypocrisy, but costs us nothing?

By the way, is that Al Gore on the stage?

@charlag what else is political then? Of course it’s political!

@Tryphon yeah in the sense that I think everything is political, not in the sense "you cannot, you must be neutral!" which they assume

I guess many people mistake what is political by some political party.
When you choose to stop beating the ass of your child, quit smoking, or not using a car, these are political decisions, arbitrary choices you takes with a social meaning. Not a directive you follow by a political party.

@charlag MONEY. You can do a lot of other things with that money.
