In the upcoming book I’m working on with Claire Wolfe, one of the points we keep trying to drive home is that people looking to do resistance work need to be able to separate ideology from tactics. What that means is, don’t throw out a solid point or idea for action just because it was said by someone you don’t like, and don’t jump on a stupid or dangerous idea just because you like the person who’s advocating it.
The above precept requires critical thinking. It requires swallowing your hatred for an idea if the people espousing it have an ingenious method of spreading it that you can use for your own ends.
