I’m a libertarian. A “live and let live” kinda gal.
But there is one thing I cannot abide at all. And that’s calling for someone else’s job.
Unless the person in question is a duly elected politician, I cry “foul” whenever I see someone else’s job on the chopping block. And that’s what I dislike so much about the partisanship of the internet. Sooner or later it’s considered fair game to demand the firing/resignation of an idealistic opponent. It’s all fun and games until someone loses an eye.
It’s too easy to forget that behind the hit counts is someone with rent, groceries, credit card bills and medical expenses.
Maybe it’s because I’m in the middle of my own employment nightmare, and maybe it’s because I truly like the people in question and enjoy the NiT/VV experience. Or maybe it’s just because I don’t like to see anyone bullied. I dunno.
Regardless, I think that while disagreement is kosher, demanding that someone be deprived of his or her livelihood–especially when you are well aware of their current employment environment’s internal struggles–is just not on.
