Ain't that the truth

Activism is easy, creating change in people’s hearts and minds takes a lot more courage and persistence than activism.

When I was 18 and 19 I was [very much an activist], blocking traffic with this parade and that protest. All I did was alienate people.


I agree. Activism is symbolic, surrogate activity; building community is more important.

Subvert the dominant paradigm, don't be a solipsist.
