The past 50 seasons are also included in that so they can't be streamed anywhere else.

10 Principles of Healing from Trauma
1. Your trauma was your experience, it happened to you, it didn't happen to someone else.
2. Other people are there to listen.
3. You are a sane human being who has lived through insane circumstances.
4. Your thoughts about what happened do not have to form a singular linear narrative.
5. Your feelings do not have to be consistent about it.
6. You can't turn back time.
7. Your creativity is an ally in this.
8. If you need someone else's opinion and feel like you might benefit from it, ask for it.
9. You lead the way and do what you feel is right.
10. Although you may have had a particularly difficult experience, you can learn so much from it.

Hell yea. I was able to organize several local businesses into an informal alliance against a local car shop which was creating a mosquito nuisance for us and environmental hazard for our local waterways.
Note, "was creating." In 14 days, since i first proposed the alliance to the businesses, we were able to get the business to remove the source of nuisance/pollution.
This is what "radical" "direct action" looks like - not just riots, but neighbors getting together to make life better.
