You’re just flipping it around. IDGAF would be an answer you might be proposing but that’s an answer that only works in critical individual situations and does not solve the cause.
systemic injustice>external discrimination>Internalized oppression because humans are social creatures and do not exist in brain bubbles.
What is worse: Prison cell, cell block, prison building, prison complex, prison system and sets of supporting laws and the society that backs it?
“illegal” only has meaning once: a) law enforcement catches you and/or b) you’re in the courts.Of course it’s in the wild. Allowing things to occur by not enforcing laws or allowing things to happen in courts that are not illegal but still unjust is what makes systemic injustice hard to support in a society that *technically* has the right rules but those who are supporting actors in such systems are not doing their jobs properly.You don’t have to push someone off a cliff. You can simply step back when they reach for your hand to save them.
You don’t think having 5+ levels of barriers to freedom has no or little effect on your internalized belief?
No, I’m describing systemic injustice.
IF and only if you have SOME “beyond” support system that’s at a greater level than the systemic injustice.Ideology, favorite youtuber, religion, whatever.But if what you see is what there is for you, there’s nothing beyond those prison walls.
My mother worked for the Prosecutor’s Office (it’s DA in other places) my whole childhood up through my 20s. County jail was across the street from her office. Cops, Lawyers, Judges, I got to hear all the dirt.“Legal” or “Illegal” has far less meaning than it ought.
I believe in its importance but it’s INCREDIBLY flimsy.
Whether Legal or Illegal, do what you can to stay AWAY from it.
Once you’re in part of the process, you lose your autonomy, even if you are trying to “fight a good fight” and the people who make up the system muddle their way through almost haphazardly.
It works, but only in the way an old car somehow keeps going despite having all broken individual parts.
Can’t go to the car dealer as there is no other car.
