On Leaving the SJW Cult and Finding Myself
Keri Smith

I’ve watched the “left” transition as described (I prefer the term ctrl-left, it fits well with the alt-right). However, I never really got dragged along with the left and felt instead the political spectrum moved underneath me. I don’t care much personally because I don’t really identify as “left-wing” or “right-wing” I simply believe what I believe.

Oddly there are a few simple lessons/ideas that seem to be entirely absent with the ctrl-left, and to some extent society at large. It baffles me since they are all kindergarten lessons:

  • Two wrongs don’t make a right (this on is HUGE with all the “now you know how it feels” crap).
  • Violence is never an appropriate response to words.
  • The one who hits first is wrong.
  • Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
  • You can’t judge a book by it’s cover (or skin color, this includes “White People”).
  • Be the change you want to see.
  • Lead by example.
  • Always consider the possibility YOU are the one that’s wrong.
  • If it’s not hurting anybody let them be happy.
  • You are not the center of the universe.
  • The only person responsible for your happiness is you.
  • Honesty is the best policy (real honesty, no more twisting, distorting, and exaggerating to “make a point”)

The list goes on but all this tiny little things that, I thought, everyone was taught as children seem to be forgotten or ignored. The world would be a lot better off if people started to remember these and live by them.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

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