How about you come up with solutions of your own before sending me paragraphs of your senseless, pointless b.s. because I am honest enough to admit I don’t have any. I literally made a point of saying I had nothing constructive to offer right now, because the situation is so hopeless for so many people I genuinely don’t know how we get out of it. I don’t point out the fact that we MIGHT be not able to avoid a nonviolent revolution because that’s how I want it to be. I point it out because every day we’re being pushed closer and closer towards it. But I suggest people like you stop acting as though everything will be fine as everything burns around us. Nothing pisses me off more than boomer liberals like you who treat me like I’m dumb and just don’t understand how politics and pragmatics work. My generation is having our wages and any chance of a comfortable retirement robbed from us, Black people are dying, and fascists are murdering protestors while on top of it all our kids are losing any chance they have of a habitable planet to live on. With absolutey no due respect, fuck your pragmatics and politics as usual. It hasn’t done shit for us.

Keep it up Chris.

Thanks again for helping me pay my bills!
