littletinyfish replied to your post: For example, if the Mining Bill that Wisconsin Republicans are shoehorning through Assembly passes and Gogebic Taconite is allowed to build the open pit mine up in the Penokee Hills with basically no oversight or environmental impact research, simultaneously shitting on the Bad River tribe’s treaty rights AND the Wisconsin North Woods that I love, I’m gonna be REALLY tempted to go up there and start monkeywrenching their shit
I’m surprised after all this Recall Walker, Planned Parenthood/Komen, SOPA/PIPA, Path/Apple/Twitter stuff that you don’t think your voice will resonate. Spread the word. Circulate a petition. Rally support. Call your representatives.
Well, I’m still extremely cynical about the Walker recall meaning anything. There’s no one running against him so far that has even the slightest bit of luminescence, and there is an endless supply of money behind his recall election bid.
Sure, the internet allows for instant mass surges of opposition, but I’m not the kind of person that is able to go much further than signing a petition. I’m not well-spoken, and I’d rather be quiet (in public) than appear misinformed.
I can’t stand belief and morality-based arguments, and everything nowadays is being drawn as a morality issue. You can’t alter someone’s morality, and all that ends up happening is people in trenches lobbing shit at each other.
I’ll be honest, I CHOSE to be ignorant of the whole Path/Apple/Twitter thing. Could not even be bothered to care. Don’t even know what it’s all about- tracking my movements or monitoring my text messages or whatever? How is it not just assumed that everything you do is being recorded? I CHOSE to be ignorant, because there’s too much noise. There’s too much to care about. Everything is supposed to incite an opinion, and it’s fucking EXHAUSTING.
Meanwhile, I have trouble finding the time to walk around in the woods more often.
