ok so baekhyun’s acting wasn’t exactly well recieved by many knetz and they’re being quite ruthless with their bashing (here’s an example, read at your own risk). i don’t know if he’s aware since he’s not in korea (i hope not) but i just thought that maybe exo-l should leave him some nice comments on his instagram or something. “i love you”, “remember to eat”, “have a nice day” idk something like that just in case. let him know that he’s loved!
To me the important thing is not to offer any specific hope of betterment but, by offering an imagined but persuasive alternative reality, to dislodge my mind, and so the reader’s mind, from the lazy, timorous habit of thinking that the way we live now is the only way people can live. It is that inertia that allows the institutions of injustice to continue unquestioned. The exercise of imagination is dangerous to those who profit from the way things are because it has the power to show that the way things are is not permanent, not universal, not necessary. Having that real though limited power to put established institutions into question, imaginative literature has also the responsibility of power. The storyteller is the truthteller.
