RE: Is Financial Freedom possible if you are “Apolitical”?

in LeoFinance4 months ago

A big part of the question is what is apolitical? This often used to defend maintaining the status quo, but the status quo is inherently political so that's a silly argument. Apolitical implies you don't care about the outcome, no skin the game. I'm apolitical to the "Coinbase race issue" because I don't know what it is.

The train of thought of "I have employees walking out over something, I do not care about the issue but do care about employees not working so I'm going to completely roll over to their demands" would have been just as apolitical, but it isn't, is it? That would have been being political.

Anytime you feel the need to defend your stance you are not being apolitical. Thats a little more "whatever, I'm bored. You all do what you want to do and fill me in after. Or don't."

I agree. As I mentioned, this represents one stream of thought which suggest you cannot be apolitical. Not accepting something or not doing something is also political coz you are not siding with social issues. On the other hand, the supporters are saying the term 'apolitical' refers to not siding with current political issues that includes other social facts when it comes to core organization mandate. Time will tell what will be the course forward but I think no body can remain apolitical in addressing social issues.
