If you’ve saved enough food for yourself for a year, you can keep all your neighbors going for a few months

“diversity of tactics!” is never excuse to avoid criticism of a movements’ tactics.
Diversity of tactics means we see the value of many different initiatives being taken at the same time, we don’t pretend to have all the answers and we try not to get in each other’s way.
It doesn’t mean there are no bad tactics, or tactics that could become much better.
Debate on tactics should thrive. And if we still end up doing very different things, we do them better because we learned from each other.
Political Nihilism has never achieved anything and offers nothing to anyone. Likewise a "ruthless critique of everything existing" only achieves political inertia and smug satisfaction in armchair theorists as the world around them falls apart. How comfortable it is to criticise everyone else for trying to make the world a better place in which we find it, and how paralysing it must be to be afraid of having the same done to you. If you're not making mistakes you're not making anything.
