Astroturf Activism

To support the cause, to do the important work of schooling the peasants for karma and clout. That's just an ego-trip.

But to do the research, to become an expert in the field of violating the rights of others, of claiming them as your own. That's greed.

To see the abuse and not think twice, to hear the outcry and double down. That's privilege.

The community agrees, you'd better affirm, to disagree in good faith makes you a bigot. That's entitlement.
