Conference in Helsinki
Will the economy be reformed without direct action or revolution?
If you're a real, dedicated revolutionary, you're a reformist.
If you look at people who are really interested in revolution
You have to try in every possible way to bring about the changes that we think ought to be made by means that are available. Going back to occupy-- it was a tremendous achievement. But there's a gap. The 99% have to participate".
If you look at popular movements, they have had successes, but they are always partial successes.
After MLK's I have a dream speech, he did not stop then. He moved right on. He kept trying to organize a movement of the poor. ]
I"m sure you've looked at the maps-- the red a blue-- after the election. The first thing that comes to mind is the Civil war
What they did was criminalize black life-- a form of slavery that actually lasted until the second world war.
Parties were sectional-- one reason we've never had class based political parties.
Terrorist primary weapon is fear--
We can take long steps to eliminating terror. One very simple step is to stop participating in it.

100s of thousand killed in central america, over a million killed in S. africa, the worst terrorist atrocities in the middle east were run by the united states. Worst terrorist act in the middle east was a truck bombing in Lebanon that killed about 85 people, hundreds injured.
That doesn't enter the story of terrorism because it was organized by the CIA.
A major way to stop terrorism is to stop participating in it. The global assassination campaign. If anyone else was doing it we'd call it state terrorism.
