Letter to the editor: Act as a tribe to reject bad laws

A recent study shows that fear of being put out of the tribe is worse than facing possible death.

That explains the behavior of Republican legislators and the MAGA mob, but what about the rest? Why don’t Floridians speak up and against abortion laws and book bans that are purely and deeply wrong? Why aren’t people speaking up and taking action against abortion bans in states where it is clearly shown that the majority are against such restrictions? Why are teachers going along with rules that demand they teach an insanely false portrayal of history?

What fear is ruling them and the rest of us? 

There is incredible power in numbers and there definitely is more of us than them. Gather. Discuss. Make a reasonable plan and most important — act! Act together. Act as a tribe because it is greater than theirs.
