There are two worries I have in my mind right now, even if they sound stupid:
1. I already mentioned about youngsters harrassing artists and fans, such as the Zamii incident and the Nessa whitewashing controversy. Many of these mobs tend to be left-wingers, hence their anger at Zamii for "fatshaming" and harassing Japanese artists
for drawing a character wrongly. As an artist, I fear that these mobs might also come after me, even though the worst I did was create a dystopian alternate history scenario
, and I have not done anything racist. Another reason why I'm scared of leftists is that many of them support fans getting harrassed as "#consequences", making the Internet seem more dangerous.
On the other end, considering that many fans might get angry over non-Whites getting prominent roles (like Star Wars), should I also worry that some White nationalist might try to murder me over writing non-White characters in a "European" setting? They might accuse people of "White genocide" because a non-White in a "European" space is like them replacing or killing off the Europeans.
2. After reading about the Malayan Emergency
, looking at many youngsters and furries on Twitter convert to Marxism makes me worried.
I sometimes fear that one day, these American Marxists might condemn my country and attempt to invade it to establish a communist state, turning Malaysia into a dictatorship. It would be like the US invading Iraq and Latin America to set up puppet regimes.
What is your advice regarding these worries?
