I think NA so far is more acknowledgement than movement, more curation than active construction. What would it take to transform NA from passive to active force? Or does it make more sense to look for activist forces to emerge?

In image board terms, is it a movement that consists mainly of a "Oh, this looks cool, so I'll just leave it here" mentality, or does it represent an ephemerality of culture where movements are as ephemeral as the medium?
