A Ca Ira

I was a student revolutionary - and I'm happy to see the kids are back on the streets and occupying lecture theatres again.  A bout of political activism is an education in itself- and will teach you more about politics and the psychology of crowds and what the individual human being is made of than you will ever get from books. I learned to despise the Trots and how brittle potheads are and how easy it is to mislead the press and what comradeship feels like and all sorts of useful stuff like that. Really, it was one of the formative events of my life.
