Critical commitment

Activism relies too much on group dynamics and is leaving too little space for a commitment on an individual basis.

If critical independent thought and reflection would be a form of activism:

  • It would mean you constantly stepped on the feet of cluster-like positions of fellow activists
  • It would mean you have to be able to work 99% independently as a minority within a minority
  • It would mean you might feel what you are doing seems somewhat detached from self-affirming group dynamics
  • And it would mean that you are not d’accord with the undifferentiated main-streams of positions within the discussion

Just tell yourself you are a “passivist”, and not an activist, instead. Then you can keep trotting your own individual paths and still be exchanging inspirational factors of thought.
