: Doing nothing while advocating socialism is also waiting for Godot.

Which is what I am not advocating- I am talking about sustained and directed attacks on the system- fighting for reforms:

1:Legitimises the current political/social/economic system.
2:Offers illusiory conduits of hope.
3:Stymies and postpones genuinely revolutionary change.

It protects the very features we should be attacking, the very cultural logic of capitalism, and it inhibits, actively, any real change.
