Dan479 has asked on Reddit, "why do they wish to take away our freedom away so badly?" in response to the new bills that have spawned after the fight against SOPA. The reason we get so tired in these fights against people who wish to take away our freedom is because they have infrastructure to support them while we do not. Government bureaucrats and elected officials have a whole system of procedures and processes for various situations. They know how to game the system and make it work for them and they have a network of supporters to rely on.
We don't have that. There's no on-going support for these campaigns against tyranny. We don't have a support network where people help each other learn how to use Tor, Freenet, PGP encryption, BitCoin, etc. We don't have enough infrastructure to make it easy for anyone to continue the fight. It should be easy for someone to go to a website, check out a list of tasks they can do to help (like write to Congress or hand out flyers or design flyers or join a local protest), and then check-in with status reports. That's what all these politicians and bureaucrats have. They may have multiple goals but every single day, they can make at least a little progress on each task. They can take 30 minutes to write a letter to someone or to call them. They can spend an hour reviewing information relevant to the issue and figure out what action to take next. We don't have that. We need to break down tasks into much smaller pieces and we need to let people gather and post more information about the tasks.
