The use of direct, often confrontational action, such as a demonstration or strike, in opposition to or support of a cause.

a policy of taking direct and militant action to achieve a political or social goal

It is considering yourself being the political subject. And acting in that matter.

What sir says is due to the fact that main stream posers belong to those who like
to go to streets and feel important. And they call themselves being activists.

In the same time, media and the whole government likes to keep that picture in your
mind to get repulsive about thinking being acitivist. Because of the acitivstic
"jerk" colors.

What does "being the political subject" mean? I honestly have no clue what you're talking about.

It means that you took your part of responsibility for the others. For the community, for the World. That means truly acting that way. BTW, when I see those "activists" who demonstrate around, as I said, I see a bunch of posers. I actually do not believe they are political subjects, because in the little bit more serious conversation with those people, I noticed heavy defeatism.

They actually feel as strong as the people on the soccer match feel strong being in a mass. That is their limit. That is their match. But I do not see that being the activism. Being activist you are not affraid, you are ready to learn, you are ready to act in a manner that you achieve what it takes you to accomplish your mission. By giving your part to the World. The part that makes sense. The part that really counts.

Oh yes. Why do I believe that so called activists are not doing anything smart? One of the major reasons is that they act AGAINST the existing structures. They do not give the solutions for these problems. They do not act PRO. They do not even think about why these structures actually exist. It is funny thing to think on that narrow minded way. It even more funny to believe you can change something by following that attitude.
