      that electoral politics and representative government have been too far corrupted to address the huge problems we face, including the corruption of government, while agitating for and pursuing other strategies and tactics, such as mass protest and direct action.

      To the contrary, the defeatism is thinking other strategies and tactics can work even though they must, and self-destructively confining oneself to the more familiar electoral politics and representative government when the corruption has metastasized and is malignant.
