We're More Powerful Than We Think

What really grinds my gears with radicals is their idiotic, ahistorical delusions about how we have zero power within Canada's quasi-democracy, and that we should reject it altogether and hold-out for the REAL democracy that will be won after a "struggle" that hasn't even begun, and which they therefore have absolutely nothing to tell us.

If our elections were clean, and if our human rights were respected, and if we could somehow assume democratic rights within our workplaces, ... if we could somehow reduce the power of money within our political system and the power of economic blackmail within our society, we could go on from here to build better democracy.

If we build on what we have, rather than, ... rather than ..., well, rather than embracing complete and total idiocy.
