Party politics is not a long term solution*. To effect radical progressive change, seize the means of communication and abolish the hierarchies.

* This doesn’t mean don’t vote for the least harmful candidate today. Do to reduce immediate harm to the most vulnerable. Just don’t expect it to lead to systemic change.
