I think I see what you are getting at but, surely, 'struggling to destroy
that which is destroying us now' could be said to be both a plan and a
struggle; i.e. it is struggle to acheive an aim: to destroy that which is
destroying us now. The aim to do away with something is therefore also a
plan of sorts and certain beneficial future effects are envisaged.
I would agree with you if any plans were made without the struggle to
achieve them. After all, theory without practice is a waste of time. In the
case of the Simultaneous Policy proposal, both theory and practice are
Of course the future or aim envisaged by any theory, plan or struggle may
