"Be gay do crimes" and "boss makes a dollar, I make a dime, that's why I poop on company time" have inspired more direct action in the younger generation than all the somber old slogans combined, and it's because they're funny and memeable. It's because every gen z will see both on social media at one point in at least one form, and they'll stick in their mind

Adjust your messaging to your audience and your culture

"You are not immune to propaganda" is another good example. Oh, and of course :gritty:

@socalledunitedstates I love a good salty, old slogan but you are probably right

@raptorhawk Of course you're free to enjoy the aesthetic - I do too, "a better world is possible" is by far my favorite slogan - I'm just saying that more memeable messaging would be more effective at reaching more people

@socalledunitedstates @raptorhawk I want quotes from the Dispossessed to be slogans. "To lock out, the same a locking in." "Be Welcome, Ammari."

@socalledunitedstates direct action of the future will never be like the communism of the past and though its important to learn from history their mistakes and successes, we must march forward, as a true revolutionary would.
