Regras para radicais

THE REVOLUTIONARY FORCE today has two targets, moral as
well as material. Its young protagonists are one moment reminiscent
of the idealistic early Christians, yet they also urge violence and cry,
“Burn the system down!” They have no illusions about the system,
but plenty of illusions about the way to change our world. It is to this
point that I have written this book. These words are written in
desperation, partly because it is what they do and will do that will
give meaning to what I and the radicals of my generation have done
with our lives.
They are now the vanguard, and they had to start almost from
scratch. Few of us survived the Joe McCarthy holocaust of the early
1950s and of those there were even fewer whose understanding and
insights had developed beyond the dialectical materialism of
orthodox Marxism. My fellow radicals who were supposed to pass
on the torch of experience and insights to a new generation just were
not there. As the young looked at the society around them, it was all,
in their words, “materialistic, decadent, bourgeois in its values,
bankrupt and violent.” Is it any wonder that they rejected us in toto.
