Meet the FEWP

Last weekend was all fakeout, execute real business, watch, purge. What Ddong Today will refer to from here on as a FEWP.

You’re lying to yourself, your family, your friends if you think either of these things:

  1. that was the last FEWP
  2. so what (aka Obama did same/worse)

Last weekend was not normal. This is not fine.

This is not good for the country. This will not make America great again.

Consolidating power into the hands of less people, stymying voices of objection, purging those who disagree, demoting those with more experience—these things have all been done before and have been proven each time to make those in power more powerful at the cost of striping it from others almost always through violence and subjugation.

From the article:

Protestors get all kinds of feel-good that they’re among fellow believers and standing up for what’s right, and they go home feeling like they’ve done their part. Even if protestors gain mild, symbolic concessions, the fact that their anger has an outlet is useful to the other side. Do protest, but be very wary of going home feeling like you’ve done your job. You haven’t.

Protesting is not the same as action, not the same as writing, not the same as taking a picture, not the same as using a law degree to take on an executive order. Being seen is good, numbers are good (coz if anything, numbers really irk the president), but it is a limited act. 

Information gets harder to come by when power gets consolidated. We have information now … later, it might not be so.
