I haven't wanted to write this because I don't want to think it, but I think that I have wasted enough time not writing about it. We spend a lot of time and effort trying to work out why things have gone so wrong. How did we get here? Why are we here? How do we turn things our way?
We concentrate so much effort upon the enemy, we think about them quite a lot. What about our side?
Why don't we concentrate our efforts upon us? Upon what we want the world to be like?
Because what we really like is complaining, pointing out how the other guy is wrong. Showing, at least to our self, that we are righteous and better than our enemies. Which is what we accuse them of being, because they are also guilty. But how often do we put in place plans for how we want things to be?
How often do we fundraise to support the causes that we believe in?
Do we organise or join groups?
But the real reason that we will never win is because we lack agency.
We expect someone else to do the work, we nearly always fail to support people who are doing the work. We criticize the way they do things. We find a reason not to get involved. Even when people do get involved they rarely want to do things and even rarer is the person who wants to do something and then follows through. I keep hearing about the Right wing threat that exists, in Australia there is currently a Parliamentary inquiry into Right Wing extremism. What threat?
How can the Right be a threat when we don't organise, fundraise or do anything?
The Inquiry will produce whatever outcome they want, it never had anything to do with us. It is irrelevant, I just wish we were also not irrelevant.
Until we get agency and decide to do things and support other people doing things we will never win. It's impossible.
