The Soapbox Activist
When it comes to pushing our society forward, activists are indispensable. They challenge us, they spark social movements and if they’re for the people, they envision a better world for the future.
But sometimes, we like to read about these visions in 280 characters or less. Give the wrong activist the word space and they’ll write their whole dissertation in one Facebook post. Yes we care about Black Lives, women’s rights and the complexities of our current political climate…
But sometimes we need a break.
But hey, activists will be activists. There’s already limited ways people can get their sentiments out there, especially considering media biases. So I guess we should stop complaining right?
Pull the plug on Facebook, and deep thinkers will have to settle for mile long Twitter threads.
