FIXME More advanced info on social reform that is not just imagery-related

FIXME numbering?

(PBS120Y and 220Y are priorities right now for the website)

FIXME interesting Q: what lessons can we learn from unsuccessful social reform movements?

Ex. https://nowtoronto.com/lifestyle/what-micah-white-learned-from-the-failure-of-occupy-wall-street/ “Occupy Wall Street was a nearly textbook example of a social movement that should have worked. But it didn’t. That is why I call Occupy a constructive failure. The movement taught us that contemporary activism has been chasing an illusion: the idea that the most effective form of protest is to get millions of people into the streets because then our elected representatives will be forced to heed the wishes of the people. The first goal of my book is to shift the paradigms of protest by challenging activists to question this dominant theory of activism.” - Micah White, co-founder of Occupy Movement
