When Your Rulers Ignore Voters But Are Terrified of Protesters, That Tells You Something

• Caitlin Johnstone - Substack

Politico reports that the DNC is planning to move the Chicago convention partially online in order to "tamp down demonstrators" against Biden's genocide in Gaza. The Democratic Party's apathy toward this election is almost as blatant as its support for police crackdowns on political dissent.

When nobody in power will lift a finger to earn your vote but they're falling all over themselves trying to stomp out a robust protest movement, that tells you what the powerful are actually afraid of and where you should really be focusing your political energy.

Your votes don't matter, but your activism does. These freaks are terrified that one day the people will stop playing with the toy steering wheel of voting that they were given to divert their political energy and use the power of their numbers to grab the real steering wheel.
