Isn't it true though that political resistance is whatever you want it to be? At the soul of it, it's all just fighting for what you believe in. I do that by volunteering and going to marches, and occasionally canvassing, or letter-writing, but I accept that people do it very different ways. Some are bolder than others, but it doesn't mean that those others aren't trying.
Redrabid is completely right though. To achieve change, you do need to participate, because unfortunately we can't count on the powers that be to make everything better. Real political action is relatively dis-valued in our current society, which is a shame. The result is more people doing what they think is right for us, and not ever knowing what we really want.
My, I hope that was coherent...
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
