There are a few different philosophies for changing the world, and most of them have been tried before. Which methods work depends on many different societal factors, but it’s clear that some methods just don’t work. History can tell us a lot about what we need to know, but our schools teach us a very limited history. Lost to the most recent generation is the history of the movements of the 60s and 70s and the lessons we could have learned from them.
I watched a YouTube video recently that was evidence of some of the lessons anti-war activists Abbie Hoffman and Jerry Rubin brought to our understanding. They tried different methods, and one’s methods kind-of-worked and the other’s didn’t work at all. If you care about making change in the world, it’s good guidance, and I think you should check it out.
