If I'm reading that correctly I wouldn't say it shitty.
Maybe I'm misreading....

So I'll just say this....

I'd call a good movement something where self evaluation
and making sure you're narrative isn't a tall tale is dominate.....
And that grassroots movement are where this is easily facilitated.....
Then.... perhaps.... integrated into changing the lumbering giants.

The problem fam is that we're focusing on counter narrating eachother when we all know damn well that things arent what they could be, and we've been watching it slowly get shittier and shittier for literally everyone. Besides like 5 meme guys.

Thats really the common thread that ties Bernie and Trump and Brexit and all kinds of shit together.
