Sure, but we have a choice as to how we get involved -- the specific
actions, or inaction. See the ongoing GR.

All I'm saying is that when people speak out about the wish to be
apolitical, the term 'apolitical' should not be taken in the widest
possible sense, which covers any action or inaction, and then dismissed
for being impossible.

Rather, in should be understood in a stricter sense, namely of favoring
inaction ("political inactivism", if you like).
