Against Resignation September 5, 2016Posted by Summerspeaker in Anarchism, Despair, Occupy Wall Street.
When I met newly radicalized folks with the Occupy Wall Street movement back in 2011, they were so committed and optimistic. It didn’t last, of course. Tensions grew. Folks got evicted. Folks went to jail. Etc. But oh was it beautiful for a moment there! Remembering the passion makes me wish my heart hadn’t turned to stone. Anarchism needs more fiery idealists and fewer jaded veterans.
