I confess...

I confess that I have lived my entire life in privilege. I confess that I have never been imprisoned for my beliefs. I confess that I am an academic who produces mild rhetoric and milder action. I confess that, when I see people who have real problems, who are dealing with real oppression, it makes the quibbling details about which I so often complain seem small by comparison. I confess that I have, for all its problems, a comfortable life. I confess that, were I threatened, I would probably keep silent. I confess that, in truth, I do not know how I would respond.

Anyways - time to get back to my academics.

Eat the rich.
