Fighting against someone’s beliefs has limited value beyond “let’s get along and don’t do wrong”.

Well, here: [I’m referring to the KKK comment comaring it to Islamaphobia ]

Still, there’s ideas and practice. The KKK isn’t bad in itself as a discussion group. They want to talk about white power and rant that white people are getting unfair treatment or whatever they complain about, I don’t have a problem with that.

It’s actions. The actions require action.

I’ll provide another example, one more awkward.

Pedophilia. Undoubtedly there are men and women who are in teaching professions, work with kids, etc who have more than a pure interest in expanding the minds of the next generation.

It’s likely there’s teachers/adult leaders in all of our pasts whose inner minds we would be horrified to see.

It’s also possible there are none. But I find that unlikely.

Yet, where does the difference lie?

Civility vs action.

There’s thankfully few people in the world that are proclaiming this as an ideology to follow. It’s more of a medical condition than an ideology in any case.

I suspect very few with that condition actually *act* on it. They know better.

But we have civility. We have human decency. We have humanistic values that are generally common. There are exceptions that need to be fought against when their actions don’t match. The actions must be fought..

Fighting against someone’s beliefs has limited value beyond “let’s get along and don’t do wrong”.
