We’re embarking on a bold new path. I’m “democratizing” this place a bit (another way of saying I’m tired of all the work I have to do in the background to post small bits and pieces that people submit).
But that’s just part of it. If you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em. Ninety-five percent of conservative media (100% of liberal media?) is about expressing offense, grievance, distaste, etc., for the latest outrage. Well, as much as I’ve been trying to make the point that we ought not stew in the juices of grievance (either shit or get off the pot…either do something to combat the left and write about your experiences or go read a good book), we can certainly stew in our own juices as well as anyone.
So open now for your complete Freedom of Thought is the Ministry of Grievance in the forums section. To post a new topic or reply to an existing topic, the only requirement is that you be logged in.
So have at it. I’ll edit out the spam as necessary, perhaps even appointing some moderators to help with that. We’ll see. We’re not exactly Grand Central Station here. But we can have fun with this. Go ahead and put the stick up your butt again and express your mighty offense at this, that, or the other. If you can do it with some humor, all the better. But this is not required.
And if you’re too shy, then tough. This is your sandbox. If you’re just going to sit on your hands and be passive, well, then you have no right to complain when the real Ministry of Truth comes knocking. But I still suggest you actually do something rather than just complain. Still, we Americans have made complaining a national pastime. There’s no reason then that we can’t do it better than most at StubbornThings. And if you see the need for a new sub-forum topic in the Ministry, make a suggestion.
Brad is editor and chief disorganizer of StubbornThings.
