adopting a policy of blocking anyone who posts/retweets stuff that's like "Hey, climate change/the rise of fascism is bad! You should be scared! Why aren't you doing anything! DO SOMETHING DO SOMETHING! If we don't DO SOMETHING it will be too late! You should feel bad about the fact that you're not DOING ANYTHING, because SOMETHING needs to be DONE!"

I'm already terrified. tell me WHAT TO DO or stfu

making posts yelling at other people to "DO SOMETHING" is not, in fact, Doing Something

it does nothing but maybe make the poster feel a little bit better because hey! They sure told those OTHER people, whose job it is to fix this!

and no, "riot!" or "why aren't you out in the streets!" or "start fucking shit up!" does not count as any sort of useful call to action

if you want to yell at people for not "doing enough", tell them what needs to be done. tell them what concrete actions YOU are taking to change things! tell them "there is a protest at this place on this day" or "here's an organisation you can join" or "write to X person and ask them to act on Y issue".

anything but "hey, other people who aren't me, this is a wakeup call, do something!"

I'm permanently fucking terrified at all times! Congrats! You achieved that much!

...and I have no idea what to do about it. I would LOVE to hear about concrete actions I can take. I would love to hear about groups that are working to change things and need more people on board. I am extremely in favour of calls to action, when there is actual action to call people to.

But I'm fucking done with "do something".

I would prefer no boosts on this and no responses unless they're "actually here's some things you can do". Please note that I'm not in the US, can't drive, and have no fucking money, but I can pass stuff on to others if there's anything helpful out there.
