Every time we have a sensationalized injustice, we get mad, we protest, we wait on justice, and eventually we go back to sleep. Why does this happen? It happens because we are mobilized but not organized.History can’t be repeated, but errors can be. We have continued to make the error of mobilizing around issues, and not organizing against the system. In order to be productive in a liberation struggle the difference between mobilization and organization must be understood. Mobilization is temporary, while organization is constant. Organization is proactive, calculated, and uncompromising. Mobilization is reactionary, compromising, and often non-specifically center around action.However trendy consciousness and mobilization will not get us the liberation and power we so desperately seek. Power only comes from the organized masses. We have seen time and time again how unsuccessful mobilization alone is when it comes to improving our condition. Mobilization at its best leads to reform, and reform is not going to solve our problems.Audre Lorde told us that the master’s tools will never dismantle the master’s house. The only way oppressed people will achieve liberation in this land is through revolution. Revolution takes organization, without organization it’s just a mobilized unproductive reaction that is bound to fail.In order to be truly productive towards the liberation of our people, one MUST be organized. True power comes from a people who are conscious, organized, armed, and uncompromising. Anyone who truly wants to get involved needs to join an organization that is working for the people with whom they share similar ideologies and strategies. If no such organization exists, then that person should take action and create one.
“The only way oppressed people will achieve liberation in this land is through revolution.”
