I think this is a little condensing, expecting groups made just to get a little bit of food to expand to taking down the system. Movements don't help anyone, the focus should always be on empowering individuals.

individuals have significantly more power when they engage as a movement. it's true some movements spiral out of control, but saying "movements don't help anyone" is like saying restaurants don't feed people.

expand to taking down the system

shouldn't we all be trying to do this? also, i have a sneaking suspicion that mutual aid, when done truly autonomously, naturally challenges the system.
