    leaders and specific goals what happens is those leaders end up getting co-opted against you and the goals end up being "met" without actually being met at all.  Here are some examples.

    We want the minimum wage to be increased to what could be closer to a living wage. - ok, we will increase the minimum wage by 50 cents.  Now it is closer to a living wage so STFU and give us (including the conservadems and blue dogs) your support.

    We want to have large corporations pay taxes, just like everybody else, and not allow these corporations to dodge taxes. - ok, we passed a law that makes corporations pay a little more (as in the corporate equivelant of a cup of coffee every week) taxes, so now that your demand has been achieved then STFU.

    You have watched Faux News, now lose 2d10 SAN.
