By finding ways to collaborate and reach common goals-to support each other instead of competing for advantages-we free one another. Part of activism is in assisting one another to become liberated so that we can be more effective in our actions. This is a question conscious activists might ask themselves: "To what degree may I need to liberation my inner self from the very tyranny I fight in the world? 

We don't want to forests to be destroyed, but we get our food to go and drink our coffee out of paper cups. Its an illusion to think that we aren't as deeply embedded in the problem as we are in the solution. In order for us to evolved as a community I think we activists need to see just how deeply entrenched we are.
