Are you fighting for justice or fighting for assimilation? Either way, you’ll end up making the corporate plutocracy who are running the place do cart wheels.
If you’re fighting for justice, chances are you’ve aligned yourself with yet another splinter group. The guys up top love that! All the intergroup squabbling over what’s good and what’s best means that they are still wildly successful. Your activism now effectively echoes their market strategies. They don’t want you having common values or shared goals. They want you fragmented and stratified. Case in point: pitting organized labor against environmental activists.
Of course, if you’re fighting for assimilation, they’re happy to give that to you as well. Just ask women, who campaigned so hard to get a fair entrance into the job market. Big business was happy to accommodate. If you haven’t noticed, what this means in practice is that, adjusting for inflation, they’re getting a two-for-the-price-of-one deal out of most couplings. They hire both spouses/POSSLQs and then stagnate their wages for thirty years.
Good is not the enemy of best. Stop fighting for assimilation or justice. Simply be just and thank God you’re not in charge. Because if there’s anything I’ve learned from the Bible, it is that hindsight always vindicates the prophets, not the kings.
