I gave up on two-party politics long ago. As I’ve grasped the full impact of white, male, cishet supremacy in the USA, I’ve become convinced that nothing short of a revolution will bring a chance for true equality. I’m a pacifist so I’m not speaking of an armed rebellion, but a mere boycott is not enough. We need unwavering support for grassroots activists, of the kind we saw in ReclaimMLK actions across the country last weekend. We must disrupt business as usual and speak truth to power every day, not just at the ballot box.
