Ripples in a pond. I’m long term but I want to solve fixable, immediate injustices. My interest has mostly been power-based: upping the immediate power of current youth. Internet access has been and continues to be a huge benefit in that quest as it allows for a voice, which is one of many paths to power. That also gets abused by powerful within it, so that becomes yet another battle within a free speech land, for me empowering youth to resist turning meme humor into actual beliefs or if they do, they’re fully aware of what they’re adopting so it’s with a clear and rational mind. Long term there are things like policy changes, although I never had tremendous faith in political / legislative solutions for youth until very recently when I’ve seen some hints of actual progress. My thing is: You have to feel free by knowing what things imprison you and working within and beyond them. This necessarily involves at least a bit of anarchy and also a bit of rule-following but everybody’s path is different. For some, it’s steeling themselves up for the onslaught. For others, it’s charging into battle. The worst consequence is a state of learned helplessness and yet sometimes deadening yourself becomes the only way through. Long tern I want empowered humans who will build whatever tomorrows they want, whether or not it’s anything I might choose ,exception being genuine calls for pro-fascism as that is to me a consequence of learned helplessness. But, I have no idea how I compare to/with anybody else here. This just my thoughts on things.
