Of course I wrote right back. And what I said might not be what you expected me to say...
Seems like a perfect solution to me. You got rid of your telly so the licence is irrelevant.
My own view is that I should pay the Combine (as John W calls it) whenever I or anyone in the household uses its services. That applies to public transport, groceries, TV licences, etc.
I am trying to disengage as much as I can from the Combine, so one day I hope not to have even think about these things.
But it's one step at a time and yours is a big step. Well done!
A beautiful exchange, Abby - your words convey the pure spirit in which you are appealing to them. There is much emotion - but emotion can cloud the truth. Revolutions are different than revolts, and it seems to me that the difference is the ability to carry the truth forward unclouded by the energy of emotion. You did not allow emotion to cloud your words. I am deeply grateful there are those like you who can speak for those who are too emotional to put their thoughts together in a timely way. We truly need each other. Thank you, Abby - and thank you for sharing your experience. 💖💜
Well done again Abby for taking a stand, it's a thank you letter I'd be sending at this stage for the beautiful empty space now available to you after that black box was disposed of and all its egotistical mind bending bs 🥴💨
