Mike Cernovich is an arsehole. Very clear.

You don’t like Caitlin. Very clear.

What isn’t clear is how aligning with high profile or influential individuals and groups over converging interests would be ineffective to achieve a stated goal. Or for that matter, aligning with anybody and everybody that would add numbers and therefore support to a stated cause.

The establishment, corporations, and special interests that we loathe and work against are very effective and very powerful, due in no small degree to their networking abilities, and their co-opting of individuals and groups to serving their agendas.

I think what should be taken from Caitlin’s view is that we’re so good at maintaining the individual purity of our causes and attacking any movements that deviate even slightly from our own visions, that we effectively hamstring ourselves and weaken our ability to effect meaningful change. She’s not wrong there.

Does that mean that you MUST work with Cernovich or people like him? Not necessarily. I don’t believe Caitlin was trying to say that either. The point is to keep our minds and options open to networks and strategies that would actually serve our goals. And they’re good goals worth serving.
