Mixed responses from a politically mixed crowd in part because the speaker comes from a different context, but there generally seemed to be a relief/enjoyment that these topics were even being spoken about, that the 'progressives' were also being thrown under the bus, that their feelings and senses of the harms done to them were articulated and validated.

But you can say "it didn't work" about everything else too. This is an all-round losing battle against collapse.

And I'm not saying we should do the exact same things. I'm reaching for ways that we could do something different, something more affecting for more people for longer.
