I'm submitting this by one of the authors of Levers of Power.

Check out the YES op ed by Kevin Young (below and attached and here) , arguing that the route to successful protest does not involve building public opinion, but instead on disrupting "business as usual" until the powers that be in business and politics have to give in.

I have gotten this rejoinder from a lot of folks: "'Abolish Police' just alienates people!" Young shows that this is not the case, and that knowledge may save another generation of struggle, if we have that long.

I'm an old Pogo fan. For some unknown reason I persist in outrage at Feudalism, as if human beings can do much better than this. Our old ways of life are obsolete and are killing us. Will the human race wake up in time? Stay tuned...
