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.
Trouble in mind, lord I'm blue
But I won't be blue always
The sun's gonna shine in my door,
Shine in my back door someday
