Is a community divider creating mobs for vigilante justice.

As a community organizer who organizes for non political and charitable causes I gotta say...


Nuh uh!

...community organizers generally assume that social change and social justice necessarily involves conflict and social struggle in order to generate collective power for the powerless...


Community dividers use identity politics to hand out pitchforks to the mob...

I see.

You can't think of a good example of a community organizer?

Community organization relies on identity divisions by default. Can you give me a good example of identity politics?

What do you mean when you say "identity divisions"?

For example, you are born with black skin, therefore you must vote for socialism.

Oh yeah, or get called a race traitor or uncle tom, something like that.
Believe me, and I know you do, it's really obnoxious. Not all blacks vote democrat. I don't vote(which I get a lot of trouble for because that makes me part of the problem according to people on every end of the spectrum), but my spouse votes republican. There are a lot of blacks that buy into that crap, but there are a lot of whites and others who do as well. 

Did I just imply voting democrat is like voting for socialism? I might have. Lol.

Two arguable reasons for a No Vote (which is also a choice) come to mind that may not be immediately popular in a society ruled by democratic aristocracy.  

1.  Reserving the voting ethic to a higher standard than you were able to commit in the respective election.

2.  The options available do not presently meet an acceptable standard of consent.

My reason for not voting is actually very simple.

I have to live with other people's bad decisions regardless of what happens.
