Quote of the Day: Defining Away Injustice

 

We’ve internalised the need to SAY some things are wrong – poverty, injustice, misogyny – but can’t bring ourselves to ACTUALLY condemn them.

So to resolve the cognitive dissonance we just define away every instance of injustice or misogyny we can do anything about. It’s tragic.
