It's funny how this actually makes me feel really cozy. Maybe it's the art style

Yeah I feel like raddle can sometimes be an unwelcoming place. Newer users will express opinions that are normal in mainstream politics and get mocked or attacked for it. I get why raddle users will react this way--we don't have to civilly debate people with oppressive opinions in the "free market of ideas". But sometimes I want to disagree with a comment or ask a question in a discussion and I stop because I'm afraid it won't be received well. (I shouldn't let that stop me but it does) But also I'm a lurker everywhere else I go, so maybe it has nothing to do with raddle, though I'll start making a more conscious effort to participate here.

That's not what I was trying to say. It seems like people are dismissed op's question by assuming that every riot is motivated in response to oppression when that's not always the case. I'm trying to ask what can people do in that unusual circumstance that a riot comes from a place of malice. If I had to answer my own question I guess it would just be fighting back but I'm hoping others have better, more detailed ideas.

Thanks for making this meme. I loved it. It's been frustrating for me too seeing how people are seemingly more outraged over UFOs than children in concentration camps and I think you pointed that out really well here.

Getting Tor is a pretty quick and painless process. You can download the browser from the above link, install it using their installer, and run it just like you would run whatever browser you are currently using.

I just found out about riseup vpn here and (thanks /u/amongstclouds) and it also has a handy installer. It took me less than a minute to set that up. You run that by clicking the icon.

I don't know how bad it'll be if you don't do either of these things, and I don't mean to pressure you into doing anything (I'm a lazy bitch too) but I just want to make sure you aren't feeling intimidated.

This makes me sad bc it's where I see myself in the future. It feels like I've just been going through the motions, doing exactly what I'm expected to do, too afraid to take any steps toward a different life
