I agree that virtually everything is political. Even being born, and occupying a location is political. Considering that most are born with a birth certificate associated with a nation that is most certainly political. We're pretty much owned as labor livestock on their farm. White settler born on land stolen from indigenous? Then consider the politics of the fact that your life replaced the original life that was there, and that your existence is white supremacist (which doesn't make you a white supremacist, just that you're helping your white supremacist nation by being there). Just being indigenous on land that has been stolen from you, and then you're charged with trespassing for attempting to sleep on the sidewalk. There's no way to escape being political.

I can never understand when people say that they don't want to talk politics, when everything is politics. Even if you try to distract yourself by talking about some movie, that movie was created by the politics of every investor, mind, resource, and hand that went into it.
