To eradicate that affected tone, prevalent online, wherein a progressive & well-meaning voice announces loudly yet indirectly to its progressive & well-meaning audience how progressive & well-meaning it is.  (Too often this appears to satisfy observers that a political critique has been lodged.)

(This is not to indicate concern over the eradication of irony.)

To aim never simply to presume that what I offer is special, without any reflection, and that therefore any rejection of it is a sign of my would-be interlocutor's backwardness.

To work quietly in my own time & ways such that when I speak out I can be confident that what I say is thoughtful, helpful, timely, amusing, or insightful.
