“They had nothing but their own stealth, and no support,” Fink told me. They hoped to stoke a revolution. “They were working from a massive historic misinterpretation,”… “We’ve gone past the time when utopia seemed like a viable option,” he said. “There’s no hope for some kind of Marxist future, so it seems formless. They just know that it can’t go on like this: the greed, the inequality. It can’t go on, so we’ll sit here.”

    We were different back then in a lot of ways and so were the naysayers. Do you suppose the Vietnam War would still be going on if we hadn’t done what we did? Do you suppose the great silent majority ever recognized and admitted the damned war could have lasted forever without those people they hated out on the streets?

    I doubt it, but what the hell do I know.
