Realizing dystopian novels were a commentary on potential future events that were preparing you for the rebellion and that’s why you read them.
Realizing these events were already going on, and that it was a modern day attempt to wake you up to a corrupted system you are a part of without being aware.
Watch V for Vendetta and get hyped. Vote, post political articles on Social Media in an attempt to make others aware “hey guys, you seeing this shit? Wtf man, people are racists and corporations bought our government.. that sucks, right, like, we should all be upset about this, I read about this… heyyyy.”
Find a local progressive group like Justice Dems or Our Revolution, figure out who to support and volunteer once. Just so you can say “I was out there making calls and/or knocking doors!”
Actually get involved yourself. Try a PTA meeting, go to a school board or township council meeting. Research your representative and lobby for your interests. The larger the group to do this the more successful, because dollars are powerful but ballots get counted. Find a local progressive group to join and start recruiting. Organization and unification are the establishments and oligarchs biggest weakness at the moment. You want to say you helped? This is helping.
If you find that there is no candidate that represents your interest in your district AND you are qualified for that position, Run for something yourself. Here is a good guide for what “qualified” means: https://www.burlingtonfreepress.com/videos/news/2016/06/16/86017378/

Progressives, I offer you a challenge:
Vote and bring at least one other person who doesn’t usually vote with you to the polls (minimum).
It is your job right now to figure out what level you’re on, and between now and November; Level Up. Do just a little bit better. We can push just 1 Level Up when shit is this fucked up, I know we can, we read those books on level 1, it’s our job.
PS: It will help you sleep at night.
