What is powerful about this?

It’s powerful communication because like you said it’s very well written. It’s irrelevant if you agree with the content or not.

I can see how someone from the US might find this “judgemental and abrasive” but honestly I doubt that was the tone or the intention of the author at all.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
