Yes. I’ve learned that voting doesn’t really work. If you read history and heck even during the pandemic - they really don’t want you to stay home. Civil disobedience or general strikes across multiple industries is the only way to get the capitalist attention. However, things will have to get pretty bad for that to happen here

It’s not just the grandparents. It’s capitalism. People go to the grocery store and they’re detached from the realities of what it takes to produce that product. It’s also propaganda. For decades they’ve said all you have to do is recycle and problem solved. Even though that’s not true and most people don’t anyways. There’s multiple angles to this. People have been set in their ways for decades and a lot don’t know any better or care to.
