Life is determined by progression. We shouldn‘t stand still but improve ourselves every day and, by extension, society itself in the long run. But even if the world would stop turning, there are issues that are not negotiable. You may change your lifestyle or your social environment, but certain “opinions” and behaviors won‘t be accepted or tolerated. Racism, fascism, homophobia, xenophobia, sexism, anti-Semitism and the likes are opposed to everything we consider basic values and principles in the punk/hardcore scene – as well as in democratic societies in general. If you can’t agree to the basic principles, there’s no place for you here. You’re an enemy.
Once you sang our songs, and you screamed out loud, you shared ideals, maybe cared about? To grow up and to change is fine, but you crossed that final line. Change the lane but don‘t turn around, wrong-way drivers will crash and burn! You can‘t hide your new friends, don‘t expect any tolerance for fascist views or racist minds, now you follow what you once despised. And if your maroon turns into brown – there is nothing to accept! There’s a sharp line between right and wrong, there’s a sharp line between you and us. A sharp line! Don‘t fall silent, there will be no turning quiet. No single step back, we will stand with focused minds. There’s a sharp line between you and us.
