All activism is fake activism.
Any democratic sentiment propels my politics.
Specifically within the AR15 community, gun owners can now make the capacity magazines for themselves and there is no need to serialize them. People don't like to register their firearms any more. They don't trust the government.
I really try not to be like, "I'm an activist."
There's more roles now to fill since Trump's in. There's this refusal of power. I think progressives are actually literally uncomfortable with the exercise of power, because of what you learn. When you're too educated you understand the total disconnect of the exercise of power.

That's why civilization exists, so those few people can exercise incredible techniques.

Power belongs to the intelligence of evil. It's totally unreflective, like Donald Trump. It belongs there.
People have a crab mentality, man. They're walking sideways.

It's sad that as crushed Millennials we live in the shadow of our parents, our fathers. We aren't willing to murder our government. It's like, come on, why is this scary? Jesus, every generation before you was willing to kick ass.
