UNGOVERN(A)BLE

San Francisco-native. Creative revolutionary Xicano anarchist. Raised in the 'hood & at war with gentrification. Proud to be a mothafuckin problem.

You can’t get anywhere if you just copy what somebody told you. You have to be challenging things all the time, challenging everything, thinking new thoughts. And there you’ve got a real contradiction. It’s hard to train people to be creative and challenging and yet to ensure that somewhere else in their lives that they’re conformist and obedient.

Dr. King’s policy was that nonviolence would achieve the gains for black people in the United States. His major assumption was that if you are nonviolent, if you suffer, your opponent will see your suffering and will be moved to change his heart. That’s very good. He only made one fallacious assumption: In order for nonviolence to work, your opponent must have a conscience. The United States has none.

All politicians, no matter how sincere (if such an anomaly is at all thinkable), are but petty reformers, hence the perpetuators of the present system.
