In no particular order:
1) Vote for the most liberal candidates you can in every election.
2) Volunteer.
3) Bother politicians to implement ranked-choice voting. This should hopefully reduce the influence of right-wing crazies in the future, and perhaps even slightly reduce partisanship as the parties slowly begin to fragment.
4) Learn how to use a gun and prepare for the coming civil war.

The Alliance's three rules on faction conflict:
1) You can't win.
2) You can't break even.
3) You can't leave the game.

A waste of time, a waste of emotional tension, a waste, if you fail to grasp the significance of narrative, of money.
