We are not powerless

“We are not powerless. We are indispensable despite all atrocities of state and corporate policy to the contrary.

At a minimum we have the power to stop cooperating with our enemies. We have the power to stop the courtesies and let the feelings be real. We have the power not to vote, and not to register fo
r the draft, and not to applaud, and not to attend, and not to buy, and not to pay taxes or rent or utilities. At the very least, if we cannot control things we certainly can mess them up.” ~June Jordan, “Civil Wars”
