You Are Never Neutral

“I believe that you should not belong to anything in life. Be free and don’t be labled.”, she said to me.

But does she know that there is no such place as unbelonging.  There is no such thing as labelless, because the moment you consider yourself labelless, you have labelled yourself as such.

Your silence is a vote.

Your inactivity is a passive action that emboldens and empowers those with activity.

Your disinvolvement is a blank check to those who are involved to change the world, on your behalf, without your knowledge or authorization.

I am sorry to tell you, that your uninvolvement and silence are very damaging action!  As Paulo Freire says it:

If we wash our hands of the conflict between the powerful and the powerless we side with the powerful – we don’t remain neutral.
