revolution is what we need

she talks a lot of revolution, but then cites a lot of reformist tactics. so… sort of mixed messages. but still, i wish more of the 90 years in the world (in general, and in this country specifically) were this radical.

Some of the places survive as small communities or weekend retreats where friends may be free and happy. The parties are good, I am told. But gray heads cannot change the world alone, and, while escapism is healthy for personal renewal, it is not revolution, and revolution is what we need. It will come from people now in junior high school and younger.
