Conserative Morality wrote:"It's not time yet" is a tactic used by reactionaries in every era. "It's not time for democracy, it's not time for capitalism, it's not time for emancipation." Of course it's not time. It's never time, not on its own. You make it time. If you're under fire in the no-man's land of WW1, you start digging a foxhole even if the ideal time would be when you *aren't* being bombarded, because once you wait for it to be 'time', other situations will need your attention, assuming you survive that long. If the fields aren't furrowed, plow them. If the iron is not hot, make it so. If society is not ready, change it.

You used "you" without any other word to support who it was meant to. The word "you" by itself cannot be plural.

You are not on either side, but you criticize and put down Trump and me all the time, so I think you are at least technically, but not officially on the Democrats side.

Or the more likely answer, the majority have yet to figure out that they're living under and fighting for their own oppression.

Yeah, that makes much more sense.

You do realize how stupid saying “this part of the constitution is unconstitutional” sounds right? Like, that’s the kinda logic Trump would probably love to use.

If it works it’s not stupid.

Besides at that point I’d use the law where I was able to lock up the republicans as terrorists to go after those who disagreed with the courts opinion
