A political resistance is not always whatever you want it to be,dear.It is not enough sometimes .Sometimes it is what you are forced to do to defend your human rights or even your life and earn the right to call yourself a human being.

And yes,you are a smart girl.

Well, my point was that it's whatever you're willing to do. Or, yes, what you are forced to do, sometimes. Even so, political action is a rather vague term. It comes in varying degrees, depending on how much is necessary, and how much you care. I would say that political action, and whether it's classified as political action depends on if you want it to be or not.

If you're gunna go to hell go for a good reason. Lotsa political activism going on out there is not for any good reason. Combating health care? Is that a good reason. Your life, your real and not perceived freedom, are good reasons. like OKD said. Make a career out of it? and just for practice? Cause all my friends are, is not a good reason. And you don't have to worry about it, 'cause when there's a good reason it'll happen.

That's my story and I'm sticking to it :?

the essence of revolution is going around something not going through it.

don't play their game. they are better at it.

Act as if you're free, and try to stay free, even though according to the letter of the law you may not be. Or something like that. I live in a country that evolved from a prison colony.
