I would add that one mustn't, in the case of Cascadia, equate revolution with a grab for state power, like a coup d'etat. Rather, we should seek to build local power in our communities, by way of engendering support for meeting our immediate needs where we live. Together, with all sorts of communities doing this, we can build networks of cooperation and solidarity throughout the region. We can define the grander struggle with the grander idea that we are all in this together, as Cascadians. Our many differences will instead be seen and known as much strength in our diversity, and as such, we can help each other in the many ways which will serve us all as an Autonomous region.
