Hope it's not as bad as I think ("as bad as I think" means "mass killings;") What else can I do? Everyone else here seems to be privileged enough to have the skills or plain cash to say "I'll go somewhere else," isn't as worried as they should be, or think they're Apocalypse Badass Man (see: accelerationists.) That's not me. I'm unskilled, poor, I have the self-introspection to know I don't have what it takes to be a revolutionary.

fwiw you don't have to be a revolutionary, just supporting others (who might be revolutionaries) is great.

if nothing else, things become a lot easier to bear when you engage in mutual aid and building a local community.

I’m in the privileged class so despite being pissed off I won’t be targeted. If I was a minority or woman I’d GTFO.

We'll see how bad it gets, might ride it out, might leave for somewhere better.

Lots of head shaking and tsktsking but no real action

I doubt it this time. People are unusually riled up.

There will be protests either way and they will be suppressed with violence.

Screenshotting this for later.

Be ready to admit you were wrong. Project 2025 is already talking about invoking the insurrection act against anti-Trump protestors. MAGA people are talking about protests and wanting another January 6 but bigger this time if Biden wins again.

One time I thought I did a thing...........but it was just gas.
