I've been speaking my mind to my peers for as long as I can remember. Sadly, most people don't like a good clash of ideas and would rather resort to useless talk. People don't want the truth from my experience. So, talking real stuff is tricky since the defensive mechanisms of most will put a stop to it from the start.
Since this Covid hysteria, I've been openly speaking up my mind and about the worries I have about what's going. Most of the time I felt like I wasted my time but then, some interactions were worth it in the end even though I mostly felt like sh-t for speaking about this kind of stuff afterwards.

I'd rather be shunned for speaking my truth than accepted for embracing lies.
I'm at a point where I truly do not care anymore. My beliefs were called extremist yesterday and I liken that to terrorism. That's truly sad when people cannot see where the real threat lies.
I speak up for those who are like minded, so they know they aren't alone. Those who oppose...well that is your choice but you won't sway me with your regurgitated propaganda.
