Roosh, the Alt Right and me
Below is an article I wrote about the Alt Right for The Return of the Kings.
This started a controversy that somehow I "support" Roosh. And then these same people DEMANDED that I explain statements that he has made.
Part of me did not want to comment because it sets a bad precedent. I am under no obligation to explain who are my friends. But then I realized that this is a bigger issue. There is a tendency for some people to act like gossip queens (sadly, even some men).
Guilt by association is a logical fallacy. And in the real world, people work and interact with people with various beliefs and backgrounds. Such interaction does not imply unqualified support for what others may say or do.
And in any movement (including the Alt Right) there will never be 100% agreement on all subjects. When a group attempts to enforce 100% agreement (such as SJWs) creativity is killed and it becomes a cult.
And I am not saying you have to agree with everyone and give up your beliefs. But learn to find common ground and find the best in people.
