Someone recently asked a rather personal question about a particular form of resistance, and whether or not I pursue that path. I’m not going to be more specific.

I foolishly answered, but then immediately deleted the response (I know- too late).

I doubt the person is a snitch. Maybe trying to find something to criticize me on. Or testing to see whether I “walk the walk”. Those are valid reasons to ask, but that’s no excuse to answer. Let people believe what they want about you– it’s nothing to you.

The question made me stop and think, though. I don’t generally consider my “contributions” beyond writing, and I simply don’t talk about such things in public.

I do my best to live as I believe I should live. Why would I put it out there, trying to make others see why such a course is the right one, then go off and live some other way? I have room for improvement, but I expect that to always be the case.

But don’t go around answering questions that shouldn’t be answered just because you don’t want someone to think you might be a hypocrite. There’s no benefit.
