We are stuck: we need an organised force of dozens if not scores of people to do some proper grassroots political liberation work in our communities, but people internalised too much brit colonial garbage and corruption and indulgence and it's nearly impossible to create a force to do anything. I feel so hopeless. I will always primarily defend our global South peoples and countries, there is a real fight and real people and a struggle that means something. It would be nice to be able to develop something here in the 'west' but everything of all what I have studied and nearly 25 years of my own political experience informs me nothing is possible here. I don't know anymore. Everything seems so bleak, I feel more alienated and estranged from activists in the west more than ever, they are living dead that sometimes make some social media posts lol. I feel myself retreating into dark humour as a coping mechanism. I can see the end of the global South on the horizon, I can feel it all slipping away, and I mean: all. It's the start of a very bad political collapse, maybe something will pick it all up? Maybe this is a temporary phase of such collapse of struggle and leadership? Maybe it's not and we headed for a whole new and final bunch of our countries being destroyed in the coming years? No one gives a fuck in the west. They never have to. They only give a fuck about ensuring colonial genocide delivers them their goodies.
