Progressive online activists score one against Sony Pictures

As much as people are loathe to admit it, North Korea is a left-wing, "progressive", state-atheist country, and the latest frenzy of hacking and terroristic threats doled out on behalf of Kim Jong Un was some left-wing, progressive online activism. Social justice was demanded, and was apparently received.

If you agree, all I ask is that you call it as much when you discuss it with others. In fact, please make sure - when your friends or even family bring up what a shame it is - to label it appropriately.

Left wing.
Progressive.
Social justice.

The first step of cultural pushback is calling things exactly what they are, even in casual conversation. Here's a great opportunity to take that step if you haven't yet.
