Platitudes and hope don’t change shit. And too many people on the left have made a career out of selling the perpetual appearance of a struggle for reform or liberation rather than an actual struggle for either of those things. Nobody wants to hear that, but it’s the truth.
I’m not saying people should give up, but the liberal politics of hope are wearing thin. Mobilization for election cycles just to have that effort pissed away by elites is a cycle of abuse, and we should all see it for what it is.
