I love how Supernatural is that never ending cycle of ‘hey look, it’s getting better again, the plot is getting interesting again, characterization on point, wow we had some really decent episodes in a row recently oh boy’ until *POOF* there is always that one (1) Buckleming episode like:

There is a huge difference between someone minimally affected by this regime telling people who are facing horrific threats to their lives and livelihoods saying, “don’t worry, this country’s gone through worse, you’ll get through this,” to shut them down or dismiss their fears

and

someone who stands to be horribly affected and feels the threat to their life and livelihood saying “we’ve survived before, we’ll survive this too” as a way to reassure themself and give them strength enough to face the next day.

So if you’re reacting to the latter example by telling these terrified but stubborn people that they’re wrong to hold onto any sort of hope, take a good look at your activism and what you’re trying to accomplish.
