The words racist, nazi and fascist have actually definitions, either use them correctly or stop using them because at this point they mean almost mean nothing.
For example, someone says 'he's a nazi' they almost never mean the person is antisemitic they mean they disagree with them. If you can't defend your point of view so you turn to insults and labels then you do not truly believe in your point of view or you don't have a point of view so you follow the mobs online.

@koreymoffett I agree that people should not misuse words but it's also alarming how prominent racists, nazis, and fascists are in the world today.

@nebunez racism and nazis are on a decline at least in the US, they aren't more prominent but when everyone is labeled as one of those things I can see how it appears that way.

@koreymoffett They're on a decline but there's still a lot of work to do.

@nebunez There will always be racist people, you can't control what someone thinks.

@koreymoffett I believe there are ways to help educate people how to hate less and love more. Social and political systems have a large influence on individuals' behaviour, so if we can cultivate a better society then we will reduce the number of hateful people.
