Excerpt from Voting vs. Direct Action

Voting is glorified as “freedom” in action. It’s not freedom -— freedom is getting to decide what the choices are in the first place, not picking between Pepsi and Coca-Cola. Direct action is the real thing. You make the plan, you create the options, the sky’s the limit.
