That's the nature of this struggle. And so it will be in this or any future campaign: messy, undefined, complicated, unsatisfactory. Those are the only options open to us. That's the world we're in, whether we choose to acknowledge it or not.
If we act, we're damned.
If we don't act, we're damned.
We're damned equally if we use proxies or wade in directly.
There's only one thing for it; if we're damned, let's be damned for what we really are.
It's time we stop defining ourselves by what we stand against and decide what it is we stand for.
