People who support the program of mainstream political parties m could do more. They could sell their house, donate all the money to the political campaign, they could quit their job and live out of their car and spend all their time spreading the message of that party. But no one really does that, and yet their commitment to their beliefs aren't questioned when all they do is show up every now and then to vote.

Anarchists do a lot more than just show up and vote, and the fact that most of them don't literally sacrifice their lives in pursuit of their beliefs really shouldn't be enough to call into question the degree to which they actually hold those beliefs.

Just the fact that I show up to some things already means ive risk way more than some dumbass Bernie supporter ever will. And I dont mean loss of life. Im willing to bet I would instantly lose my job
