(How can we be at exactly the same place as we were 50 years ago with racial and social justice? How can Ecocide continue when we know from past experiences the outcomes?) It seems even the protests are part of a system...upholding the positions of power. The majority never protest yet there are people who will ...the system is flawed, there is no justice. Atrocities continue... people turn a blind eye, or they don't care, they support and carry out the atrocities or get paid to, or people protest. If we protest at least we can feel we tried and we stood for what we believe in. But protesting is still part of the system and continues the dualistic narrative that Charles Eisenstein talks about.
Is Feminism just a product of the patriarchy? ... being a feminist in a predominantly biased white male world doesn't meet the white male on an equal platform but upholds the hierarchy, it's just another protest that strengthens the power of the oppressor and keeps us separate. The truth is there are many people who want to go about their business and not be bothered about justice because either they are benefitting from it or are not affected by it. Justice is after all a mythical concept.
Where can we ascend and find the power to transcend this system and break the chain of abuse?
The first step is to find compassion
