What's the Point of Activism in 2022?
A new WrongSpeak post
The good people at WrongSpeak have found it in their hearts to post another piece of mine. I’ll put a preview below but click on over to check out the entire post.
Recently, a Twitter user shared a video that showed a group of vegan activists protesting in front of the New York City Louie Vuitton store while a young man ate an unspecified cut of meat in front of them. Two separate unnamed women are berating the flagrantly eating man (unflinchingly eating, I should mention) while calling him a “fucking coward” and informing him that he has a “small dick” (no points for originality, it seems).
It is certainly not the first time, nor will it be the last time, when protestors become unhinged and wail at someone for having the temerity to disagree or simply not care about the issue du jour. You may recall the BLM protests where diners were verbally assaulted (sometimes physically) by gangs of activists. But the “meat-eating bad man” video above got me thinking, what is their goal here? And more broadly, what is the purpose of activism in the year 2022?
