Where To Say It?

I dearly want to say something to everyone I follow on social media, but they'll all think I am targeting them specifically when I'm not. Not really. Here it is:

I don't follow you because I'm interested in your political views. Nobody that thinks differently from you is going to have an epiphany and change their mind because you reposted something that fits in with your politics. You're seeking validation (or justification) of your views, and you'll get it from your friends that believe the same way you do—but you're not changing anything, you're just shouting into a void listening for echoes to make yourself feel better. Get over your anger, pick yourself up from your "I can't believe everyone doesn't think the same way I do" tantrum, and go out and make changes for good in your community. Volunteer your time and talents to help others, make a difference in someone's life.

And another thing that really bothered me: this whole "punch a nazi" thing. Violence is never the right answer. People have a right to believe what they want to believe (and they will), accept it. Don't encourage or cheer for violence. I'm ashamed of people that are so welcoming of most different-thinking people (LGBT etc) in their community yet still harbor hate and violence toward others. So here's my opinion on the subject: you're wrong. I'm not condoning "nazi" beliefs, I'm quite strongly against them, but they are entitled to their beliefs.

And clickbait. Boy do I dislike clickbait.
