The Distribution Of Assholery [Separating From Good To Bad]

June 15, 2021

Growing this account, I interact, talk to, and learn from a bunch of different people, across a wide spectrum of groups - every single day.

For the most part, it’s a real pleasure and a privilege. You are all wonderful.

And I honestly don’t care which group you belong to, whatever type, colour, culture, class, sexuality, gender or political leaning that is… you’re all individuals to me.

It’s the #classicalliberal philosophy of individualism I try to live by.

Yet today, so few others do.

Groups, labels and ‘us vs them’ othering is easy, safe and seductive, and hive minds a tempting distortion to fall into.

But your group doesn’t change who *you* are… and wonderfully good and intolerably bad people exist on all sides, even in the most virtuous groups of all.

So why can’t we hold all assholes equally accountable?
