So there’s this institutionalization of protest, so people sit back and say, ‘okay, I get all this anger, and yet I have no power, I’m impotent in terms of affecting policy.’
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.
I don’t think you can be a socialist on your own.
…it matters who is showing up, who are the people that are involving themselves…
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.
no wonder you’re marginal because you’re denying the reality of the majority of people.
