But if you’re trying to force someone’s hand to comply to your demands, you should make sure someone gives a damn about your threat, first.
The fact that you’re crying real tears on social media because you can’t participate in a thanksgiving feast that runs directly contrary to the principles of ‘climate extinction’ only shows what an intellectually dishonest fraud you really are.
But people in the real world are supposed to stop and listen up when you make a demand on the rest of us?

What happens when he finally realizes she’s never going to take his phone call.
Will he will himself to actually die for his cause? Will he throw in the towel and show that this was just a theatrical stunt?
Will the rest of them think twice about making a threat you can’t actually follow through on?
