Do you want to win this thing? Actually win it?
By that I mean, do you actually want to create a healthy world instead of a world where we are ruled by lying, murderous, warmongering, oppressive, ecocidal, omnicidal sociopaths? Is that something you truly, deeply want?

A large percentage of the people who get involved in revolutionary political movements and criticism of establishment power structures, if they were honest with themselves, would admit that they do so not out of a sincere desire to replace the sociopathic ruling empire with something that benefits all life on this earth, but out of a desire to feel good about themselves. It’s not a real battle for them, it’s just a titillating ego game. A hobby, no different from any other.

As I never tire of saying, the only thing keeping the imperial status quo in place is propaganda. People would never consent to the exploitation, inequality and murderousness that is intrinsic to the US-centralized empire if they were not propagandized into consenting to it;
