If we lose this struggle, if we allow ourselves to be bowed and beaten yet again, I promise you it will not end here. This is our moment, our line in the sand, our primal scream "This far, no further!"

Captain Picard approves, Ethan.

We've made too many compromises already; too many retreats. They invade our space and we fall back. They assimilate entire worlds and we fall back. Not again. The line must be drawn here! This far, no further! And I will make them pay for what they've done.

My suggestion: Let's build real movements where we are. Then we can link them together. Otherwise, the chain will be as weak as its proverbially weakest link.

From: Tiqqun - How is it to be done?

The global order cannot be taken as an enemy directly. Its perfection is not to be global, but to be global locally. The global order can only be opposed locally through the extension of opaque zones over the Empire's maps. Through their growing contiguity.

The extract appears to support Unionist's position.  On the other hand as witnessed elsewhere, the final word against localized impudence against authority is typically expressed through the use of varying levels of repression, meaning whatever ultimately works to quell the disturbance, up to and including instances where the state employs its most violent responses.  Either way as presently conceived via the local or the global approach, there appears to be a wholesale disconnect where it concerns effectiveness against the economic power and its propagandist media serving up daily platters of shit.
