Do you wake up in the morning feeling ashamed of your privileges, responsible for the misdeeds of your predecessors, guilty for each unit of your consumption and sorry for your incarnation in a toxic and disposable “First-World” society? […] Make no mistake about it, activism can eat us alive, but only if we feed ourselves to it willingly … which is what we do.
