Bridges

Sometimes I criticize progressives for a boutique-ish approach to oppression that sidesteps the class system altogether. I only do this when I’m feeling especially brave because what I’m doing thereby is (1) telling progressives that they’re fundamentally unserious, (2) telling conservatives that there really is a class system, (3) telling liberals that they have met the oppressor and it is them, and (4) telling radicals that they have thoroughly and catastrophically failed. When I feel cowardly, I talk about building bridges and shit instead.
