Wow, really? You might want to check your privilege.

Looked in on any of the active dictatorships lately? Political rebels are not only forced underground, they're hunted down and slaughtered.

Religious groups have been killing one another since the second human conceived of a god. Ever heard of a little place called Israel?

All over the world, people are routinely persecuted against for being the wrong colour, having the wrong genetalia, or being born on the wrong side of the border. Attempts to change these status quos are frequently met with violent opposition. These people would give their right arms to have lives that were merely "complicated."

But you know, if you think you've got it so rough over there in your American living room, feeling persecuted through your uncensored laptop, free to speak your mind without fear of State Police breaking down your door and throwing you in a concrete hole, who am I to deny your perceived injustice?
