Are you going to wait until the space is made unavailable again? It seems to be happening very quickly as new laws are made to close off, shrink, and all together remove your place to stand. While you still have it, what will you do with it?
We live in societies of law. Most of us have democracy but we are unsure of how to use it. You can stand and wait for the laws you imagine to appear out of thin air, or you could assemble them and present them.
We complain that congress is bought and this is true. Money does apply pressure to our political leaders. This movement is also applying pressure. This movement is the counterweight to corruption.
There is one last thing the bourgeoisie offer our do nothing congress that we need to provide a counterweight for in order to effectively challenge the them. Legislation. The lobbyist don't just buy politicians, they also do their job for them by offering prepackaged solutions.
There are enough educated and capable people within this movement to do this. The only question that remains is whether or not we have the will.
