responsible use of power means living with the consequences of your actions

When Brock Turner uses his (white, privileged male) power to get out of jail for rape, it’s an abuse of power.

When Nelson Mandela goes to jail for protesting apartheid in South Africa, it’s a responsible use of power.

Responsible uses of power means you understand the consequences of your actions, act accordingly, and live through the consequences of your actions. Trying to use your power to get out of reasonable consequences is an abuse and misuse of power.

That’s it, that’s the post.

Use your power responsibly yall.

Nobody proof read this because honestly this probably should’ve been a twitter thread

This is the breakdown of how I discovered my power posturing (& making angry demands) really stemmed from fear, and how I concluded that fear and excessive use of power are two sides of the same coin.

Read the rest on my website.
