“I truly believe that through celebration, through good vibes, good feelings, being friendly, kind, this is the energy and power that’s gonna change the political landscape. It’s not about beating, or fighting, or banging against the wall.” —MC Yogi
Well, MC Yogi. Thanks for invalidating the struggles of oppressed people the entire world over.
Sorry, Guru Gobind Singh….
Sorry, Revolutionary War reenactors…
Sorry, Nelson Mandela….
Sorry, lil’ Black Panthers…
Sorry, American Indian Movement….
Sorry, tiny lil’ Zapatista women….
Sorry, Gulabi Gang…
I don’t know, MC Yogi. Perhaps it takes a more inclusive vision of what constitutes viable means of resistance to make a change….
Thank God, for good ol’ complicated Rage Against the Machine who were always good at inspiring that…
