HUH?? Confused @ B.V.

Like Nmaginate said, our effort should be directed at business itself, but we should also make some allies too. No one group is powerful or numerous enough to take on the System by themself.
Nmag has suggested that if more than one group is attacking the system then there is no need, necessarily, to have a platform or idea that we must have allies. If they are about doing the same thing - attacking the system - what is the need for formal alliance when the nature of our "independent" action forms a natural alliance by virtue of us both/all attacking the same system.

If anything, those alliances should come natural. I'm saying if it is meant to be it will come along naturally, organically through the course of our attacks against the system.

There is something diversionary in this idea of that "we need allies," IMO. If someone is our "ally" then the can and will align with us as we pursue our objectives. There is, too, the sanctity of our individual struggles that should not be compromised by trying to form "alliances." Our attack against the system is, in and of itself, an alliance.
