I learned through past big uprisings and especially through their aftermaths, that what matters the most is what kind of new normal people are accepting returning to after the uprising, not the uprising itself, or its subversive intensity.

It ain't bad that some things will change, that the popo will be held more accountable, and shit. If the police cannot be reformed, it CAN be made weaker and their monopoly of "legitimate violence" being taken away. Power dynamics is what matters in society.

But police brutality is still happening every day, so dreaming about an ideal post-uprising world is like putting the cart before the wheel...
