On social justice allies

I had these thoughts a while back, but I had yet to condense them succinctly. It’s only appropriate that I quote myself from Twitter:
Mori:

So here’s the thing with those claiming allies aren’t wanted in their social project: either you have power to change society, or you DON’T.
Mori:

If you have the power all by yourself, you aren’t a powerless minority; you’re the elite. If you don’t, then you NEED HELP to do it.
That is reality, and any rejection of that is feeding your ego at the expense of your cause. Pick which one is more important. #society
