Especially for those folks who have done things that don't happen with everyone e.g. initiated some outstanding organizing projects that empower people? Written and published revolutionary music, screen plays, books, paintings, etc? Traveled extensively and engaged in work to build up people throughout the world? I mention revolutionary work because that work is never going be recognized by this capitalist power structure. That's a critical piece of this analysis because the overwhelming majority of people are trained to respond to everything based on that thing's connection to the power structure. If the power structure acknowledges it, then to most people, it has legitimacy. If the power structure doesn't acknowledge it, then to most people its not valid. Since revolutionary art and achievements are never acknowledged by the state those works are designed to discredit, most people are not trained to recognize that category of work as legitimate. So, for those of you who have worked hard to have the types of accomplishments indicated above, the question is how much do the people close to you in your life acknowledge and celebrate your contributions?
