food should be free. water should be free. housing should be free. power, fuel, electricity should be free. basic necessities should be free.
the idea of “people should have to work for a living” carries the implication that some people deserve to die

Hey you know the whole “be around positive people” cause its better for you thing? Well I find it problematic in a number of ways. Some people are more complex than that and can’t be categorized as positive or negative and/or people go through various emotional processes and at times may be suffering from depression/sadness - often times because they happen to be really sensitive human beings who actually want nothing more than for everyone to love and be loved; and these people may be profoundly effected by all the darkness they witness in the world. Is it positive or negative to be sensitive and deeply affected, and to have a genuine disposition? No it is neither - it is real and its reality.
Sure maybe there are people out there who are blessed/privileged in a number of ways to make them seem overall like a “positive” person but that is usually more or less a first and/or public impression; get to know someone and discover that there’s a lot more to the picture/story.
My point is really that by spreading this priv-lit psychology meme around, you may be isolating really amazing/interesting/complex individuals and making them feel judged and unworthy of friendship because they might fear being perceived as “negative” (which is subjective anyway) if they happen to be suffering. They may not reach out to you or others as a result, and you might lose the privilege of getting to know someone in all their genuine, complex, negative and positive, beauty.
I feel this meme/catchphrase is stigmatizing and judgemental more than anything else.

“When people of colour are expected to educate white people as to their humanity, when women are expected to educate men, lesbians and gay men are expected to educate the heterosexual world, the oppressors maintain their position and evade their responsibility for their own actions.”

GIVE UP EVIL
I will never understand why so much of humanity lives in such violence, hatred, anger, pain, destruction. I will never understand it and I can’t exist within it. I just wish everyone would give it up already - give up evil.
