Resisting isn’t the same as winning. The metric of success in the short term for resisting is not victories but the additional cost in time and effort and political capital that those in power need to spend to achieve anything. Resistance is friction, inertia and obstacles.
Those in power will continue to enact policies that rob people of their humanity. They will continue to demonise the marginalised. They will continue to impoverish the world while they have the power to do so. Yet making every act cost them more helps build the unity that will eventually pull them from power.
