We have to realize that we live in a polity that is highly organized and would co-opt dog shit in order to preserve its hegemony. Anything approved by the system which appears to be challenging the system is merely a co-opted token, symbol of “progress”. When one participates in politics as it is parochially defined in this polity—and is “successful”—it is not a victory for the people but merely for that individual and for the system. The message in this song is apropos because the only way to counter this co-optation is to look in the mirror and realize we have to save ourselves and find others who understand this premise and build with them. Big up A-Alikes!
