It's interesting to see the kind of creatures the modern consumerism produces and the mass media encourages. Environmentalists who can't live without air conditioning. Farmers leaders who've never spent a day in the farm. Trade unionists who've never gone to factory. This is the why I find radical dalit politics so interesting. They might be uneducated, or immature but they know that the leadership has to come from the shared experience. A Brahmin how can never understand what they go through.

@jnukiladki The LGBT rights movement in the US was very strategic about creating a separate category of "allies" where they put the well-meaning straight people, took their funding and their support, but leadership was always firmly placed in queer hands.
