While activists take action to campaign against injustice or environmental issues, passivists do their bit to contribute to society by recycling the odd empty Coke can, or 'liking' a campaign page on Facebook.
They often think of themselves as better than the rest of the world because of this.
13 year old girl: "OMG! I liked a page on Facebook which says that cancer should be cured! I'm such a teen passivist!"
Person 1: "I've given up eating bacon for a week because the way the meat industry works is wrong. From Monday to Friday
, I'm only eating beef, pork, chicken, lamb, and fish. Why aren't YOU doing your bit to help the world?"
Person 2: "Shut up, you're only a mere passivist, you have no right to tell me what to do."
