Several festivals and the end of a particularly brutal year are now upon us. Instead of a religious blessing, I’d like to offer those who’ve contributed to the community of this page some end-of-year insight from my hero, the immortal Abbie Hoffman.
“Revolution is not something fixed in ideology, nor is it something fashioned to a particular decade. It is a perpetual process embedded in the human spirit. When all today’s isms have become yesterday’s ancient philosophy, there will still be reactionaries and there will still be revolutionaries. No amount of rationalization can avoid the moment of choice each of us brings to our situation here on the planet. I still believe in the fundamental injustice of the profit system and do not accept the proposition there will be rich and poor for all eternity.”
Go well this holiday season, friends. XxView on Facebook
