Here are some tips for how to love your country, and advocate things that make it functional and whole.
- Support health care for someone who’s sick, or may get sick and be unable to afford the cost of their care (so, for everyone).
- Demand that soldiers, veterans, and their families receive the support services they deserve. Demand a stop to prioritization of war and the marginalization of the humans who fight it. (Better yet: demand a stop to war. Period.)
- Recognize poor-shaming and bootstrap-related arguments as the bigotry that they are. Don’t participate, and try to raise awareness when you see someone who is doing so.
- Fight the ongoing wage gap. Which yes, is still very much in play.
