[Balin] The hook and ladder trick

Postby Balin » Mon Jun 17, 2019 8:30 pm

Zack hopes a certain social movement will continue to progress. He has no direct association with the movement, nor does he hold any strong feelings for or against it, so why does he want this?

Zack: HAM? Does he have an economic interest in the continuation of the movement? Is the movement related to: black lives matter? LGBTQ issues? Occupy? Environmental issues?

If not an economic interest, are his interests nonetheless (directly or indirectly) served by this movement? Is he interested in what this movements says? Does? Does he expect some kind of societal or policy change to result? Does he expect that another group would react to what is being said? Does he have a personal interest in anyone involved in the movement (or who might be indirectly affected by it, as above)? Does he study the movement? Does his job involve being conscious of what this or similar movement(s) do(es)?

quick RECAP:

Zack is hoping for a certain LGBTQ+ issue to progress socially.
He is not directly or indirectly involved in the LGBTQ+ movement.
He wants this change to help a certain group of people.

Is he hoping that government policy will change? New laws will be enacted? Regulations for business or individuals?
Is the "certain group of people" a sub-group of the LGBT community? Or separate from it?

Is this group of people homophobic/transphobic? Are they allies? Is their stance related to LGBTQ people relevant? Are they linked by: religion? Profession? Hobby? Ethnicity? Blood? Does Zack hope these people will become more sympathetic to LGBTQ people? Less? (Let’s hope not.) Is he part of this group himself?
