“People can have many complaints about the social world and know that it generates significant harms to themselves and to others, and yet still believe that such harms are inevitable, that there are no other real possibilities that would make things significantly better, and thus there is little point in struggling to change things.” -Erik Olin Wright.
The point in struggling to change things is to extend our limits–what is possible–even if the way the world is going seems inevitable. Dreaming, believing, and acting on our visions for improving our environment, our communities, and ourselves can suppress the very harm that brings us down. Making transformative change in the world comes from movements of every caliber, and the best I can hope for is to operate within my community as does a gear on my bicycle.
