seat at the table
from google: a position as a member of a group that makes decisions
we always make it sound so inclusive/equitable/whatever.. but what it means is that an agenda has already been set.. (which is enough in itself to be a huge red flag).. and it means those at the table get to play along with the finite set of choices *they (the agenda makers and pickers of people to sit at table) have decided matter.. (it’s always about spinach or rock ness.. not legit voice/listening).. in order to make some decisions.. that again have been pre set .. either by that *they or even by some societal/institutional system/structure
The majority, then, becomes not a homogeneous unit or even a body of agreement but a concatenation of differences.
minorities are protected therefore, not be being separated but by being *empowered to participate in the process
oi.. *seat at the table ness
