Lines in Sand

Hard:

Ultimately, we agreed to draw the line at hate. Hate crimes, hate speech. And while even the lines defining hate can be blurry, we played out a variety of situations and everyone came down on the same side on those. So we feel good about that line in the sand.

It’s hard enough to get a startup to not be dead all the time; the moment it all starts working you realize that your problems just multiply.

Basecamp should be a place where employees can come to work with colleagues of all backgrounds and political convictions without having to deal with heavy political or societal debates unconnected to that work.

You shouldn’t have to wonder if staying out of it means you’re complicit, or stepping into it means you’re a target. That is difficult enough outside of work, but almost impossible at work.

Lines, in, sand.
