Winning?

Organizing got us the weekend. Organizing got us cleaner workplaces. Organizing got us consumer safety standards.

When is it gonna get us free?

When we spend our weekends escaping our responsibilities, our time at work daydreaming of being somewhere else and our money and energy consuming, while too tired to create, what benefit is fighting the good fight to me when it comes to the things that matter most to me?

If I’m an activist or organizer, how do I justify the time spent away from my loved ones when it doesn’t buy them the time to do anything differently from the way that it’s already being done?

How do I justify time spent away from myself when the supposed good fight leaves me too tired to pour into myself in the ways I know I should?

How is this winning?
