      We need to break through the old divide and bring new ideas, new ways of looking at the world outside of the echo chamber of social media.

      In other words, old recipes don’t work anymore: strikes and demonstrations have become useless.

      That’s a pretty bold statement, and I don’t think it applies generally. It’s at least not backed up much further. Demonstrations (BLM for example) lead to more awareness, which leads to more change and action. But of course they don’t fix problems in themselves (sometimes they even create problems in themselves!). Action without demonstration is also good. Action is demonstration.
