Taboo

Perhaps the most submissive thing we can do, how we can give them most control over us, is to go on believing it is taboo or even somehow wrong to discuss politics together.

It is imperative we have these conversations and that we have them constructively.

It is okay to assert your ideas. This is how we share and learn. It is okay to listen to others’ ideas. Again…that sharing and learning thing.

When slave holders were afraid of a revolt, they kept the enslaved people from talking to each other, no conversation allowed.

You know why? Because it is collective action which leads to change. To uprising.

We have to talk. We have to share. We have to explore. We have to organize. We have to assemble.

Together.

Nothing will ever change until we do.
