people who still think social media and online activism (for those who may or can not afford to do mobile activism) do not play pivotal roles shaping our society literally ignore the reality of how much real people that partake in the system get online every day and check their newsfeed for the latest anything and are subsequently informed and maybe taught with or without realizing it. which has me wondering why there are still people who disagree for the sole person of being the opposing force, special snowflake “not like da otherz” talkin bout “lolz but whst r u doing online??? hy dont u go out and protest, stop talking about it and do something” affirmative action only when someone else talking about it but not doing anything at all in the face ass. this isn’t the 60s or 70s where street activism was one of the few viable options. a lot of the activism of today given our invasive and frequently used technologies take place not just in the streets but in our homes, within our circle of friends, the digital space we occupy with others, our minds, we have all these battles to win if we choose to or ignore them and allow this oppressive structure feigning to be a government eliminate the disenfranchised while simultaneously creating more in order to ensure its survival. in ignoring the latter, in thinking that because “it’s the internet” it some how grants it supernatural abilities that let it exist in a vacuum all on its own with no effect on reality you ensure the survival of this system. remember, it was a series of fb posts in Egypt that started an actual revolution in the streets. there’s no if ands or but about that, this actually happened and we should never forget that under whatever conversation about present day activism you’re having.
