Are you afraid of
being different in a society that expects you to be the same, to conform to certain ideals, behaviors, cultural norms, religious beliefs, etc?
Not really. I don't particularly care what other people want me to be.
If I'm not some kind of blight on society, I can't understand why anyone would care enough to go out of their way to try and change me. Not many people enjoy being oppressed like that...
Afraid and fear get a bad wrap. Fear is not all that bad. Some folks think that if they feel fear that is bad. Really that is a strange notion. Fear is just one of our instinctual emotions. I grew up with sports and outdoor adventures. We sought out things that were scary to do. Like running big rapids or skiing off cliffs or playing linebacker or facing a 95 mph hardball coming at you.
I fear public speaking. So I have spent a good part of my life doing it from boardroom presentations to preaching and coaching kids.
You bet your booties I am afraid of what people think of me. My God!!! What would happen if they thought I was just like them?
Social justice warriors are authoritarian leftists, devout socialist activists, very much in line with the nationalist socialists in this image.
It seems to me that the message of the picture has been lost by most readers. The man circled in red was very brave to choose not to salute Hitler. Any fool can be an anarchist, but what does that prove? Nothing, except that he or she doesn't like rules because they don't fit in with their self-centeredness. Consequently, anarchists are not particularly brave, since they stick with their own kind, like glue... sort of like bullies in junior high.
On the other hand, the man in the picture was risking his life in choosing to quietly object to Hitler's regime. So for him, there must be a certain amount of fear, but there is also the calmness of his convictions even if he were to be imprisoned or killed. But of course, normal fear is surely a part of the knowledge that one may be tortured for choosing a more noble path.
He sed to be part of the Nazi party until he had run afoul of the Nazi Party over his unlawful relationship with Irma, a Jew. They imprisoned him.
Very interesting. He was even braver than I thought.
