in Political Strategy

On political subcultures

Radicals tend to become radicals when we become disillusioned with aspects of the dominant culture. When we become aware of the destructive impacts of capitalism, racism, sexism, and other social systems that we see perpetuating oppression, we do not want to be part of it… However, the desire to separate ourselves from injustice can easily morph into a tendency to set ourselves apart from society in general.
