Loyalty oath

The phrase loyalty oath was the nicest, shortest way i could think of invoking the evil of the Inquisition, witch trials, and red scares. Questioning people's motivations and intentions, rather than acting on what people do, is a quick way to tearing apart communities and, at worst, destroying lives.

I talk about the movement and consciousness and solidarity, including in a Drupal context— i'm all for being aware of a greater good and doing things for that reason. But if we start questioning everyone's commitment, we're done before we've begun.
