"The Supreme Court is fake anyway" is grounds for an ass-beating when Roe v. Wade, Obergefell, etc are at stake

MORE REAL PEOPLE will face MORE IMMEDIATE CONSEQUENCES that do not give a shit about you philosophizing about your perfect anarchist utopia

@alpine_thistle how can I repost this a million times

@alpine_thistle i swear to god i will go the fuck off on the next person i see pooh-poohing electoralism.

like i said on twitter, voting won't fix this. but voting might keep something like this from happening again in 60 years. not by voting for president, but for voting in democrats (or greens, or whatever) for every position from dog-catcher on up—one of the reasons republicans got where they are now. we need riots AND politicking.

@nev riots get the goods, and electoralism helps us KEEP them.

@alpine_thistle if the supreme court still holds authority in 10 years we will have failed as activists. the stakes are too high to settle for a dilution of capitalist power and oppression, perfect anarchist utopias notwithstanding. no part of this is theoretical or less immediate than roe vs wade.
