That's it, I snapped. Part of my job was education on people having different views and how that's okay. I've been doing it by acknowledging the norm, because no one gets acknowledged in a beaurocratic, so that's important, and then educating on the different as:  that's good there's different ways of thinking and being and that's important...People have been liking what I've been doing. Liberals and Conservatives.

Then there's these "liberals" who run things who think they are so liberal, but what do they do??? They stop the conversation because *gasp* people have different views.

This is what I say to them: Well no shit people have different views. You are a fascist dictator who can't handle that, but all those you oppress are fine with it. In fact, they want to have that conversation, but you don't because it will mean a loss of control and comradery amongst those you oppress. Imagine if people found out that eachother are not wild apes or evil or dangerous or stupid? Oh wait, that's what happened with internet freedom. Now people around the world are all uppity and shit, which you don't like with your $100k+ income and benefits as a job ruling people who don't need to be ruled.

Peoples in permaculture, take up political office or write legislation etc. If you aren't already (which I know most of you are) but this type of oppression is more than I can take. It sounds to disable freedom and self sufficiency.

For those with power or seeking power, don't call yourself liberal if you are oppressing conversation, call yourself fascist. You who use civil rights as a war cry, but then don't stand by it, I am on to you: you like the oppression. You like having that war cry because it baits your hook well and you can't oppress without it. I'll be looking for other people to put in office and you can sit next to Mussolini, where you belong.

Sorry, it's been a rough week and that's the last straw.
