Whatever the case, the movement generated from the Women’s March, if any, needs to deal most of all with the question of climate change. It is sad after being exciting to see the way an opportunity to challenge the system on climate change was lost as the question of gender issues came to the fore. Great. Let it stand, but a march by half a million could have ignited a social revolution. But it didn’t and it won’t in this form…Let’s consider nonetheless this splendid development yet recycle at once to something more comprehensive, transgender, most hopefully socialist or revolutionary communist, and focused on the coming calamity of climate change.
