    My diary isn't about laziness, it's about empowering the large masses of people leading lives of quiet desperation but who could never see themselves as a dissident or protestors. I'm trying to say that we can organize, we can be disruptive, but we can do it in ways that can deliver results without the old school physical marching in the street kind of protest.

    I gave up on the physical protests when the oceans of humanity in NYC at the RNC in 2004 were completely and totally ignored by the media - it was like it never happened. I thought then - game over for that strategy.
