Struggle…for real

Real revolutionary struggle is not an act, but a trajectory of activism. It is not individual but collective. It is not a moment, but a commitment across spans of time. It involves irrevocable sacrifices, not momentary ones quickly retrieved or reversed or whose effects may be easily withstood. It is not self-regarding, but community referent. It forges real coalitions, not transitory alliances. At its end and in its wake, it leaves behind institutions, structures, and those who build them, not a resume of “I was there.”
