…voter turnout in provincial and national elections keeps on going down…I don’t think it’s a question of apathy…people have no real say in how things operate.
I do not like electoral politics but I consider electoral politics to be important particularly given the fact that as the left we’re so fucking weak.
…we actually have to be able to win things because that’s the only way that we convince people that we can succeed.
systemic mass movements are absolutely a priority if we want to change the world.
engaging with the political system that we have now in terms of achieving imperfect…short, term goals that have a concrete, immediate impact on people I think is important.
