Give up on legibility and the coherence of politics, because you’re never going to get it again, and understand that this is a blessing. Plan on losing every battle for the rest of your lives to the ubiquitous surveillance state and the ubiquitous network-control state that follows it and understand that you still get to, as a collective entity, completely determine what those losses mean and who is losing.

Understand the difference between change and action. Understand what it means to be a good part of your ecosystem. Play within structure, shift the meaning of things that appear already over-defined. Become the dependent co-arising of the narrative frame.

Resist. Listen. Bend. Live
