I love going back to the 60's and 70's and re-assessing what went on. Watching PBS specials about Andy Warhol. Reading Tom Wolfe. Surreal. I' m just laughing out loud about the stupidity of those elites and their white servants.

I've just ordered three copies of this book that I thought was out of print years ago. Back in the 70s it was 'right on' and in today's politically correct world, the message of those 1970s activists -- now probably wearing suits and ties, drawing down big bucks and trying to be PC themselves -- is as important as it was 30 years ago. In many ways, the 'flak catchers' are still out there, and still uneasy with confrontation, especially by folks from different backgrounds, different colors, and different attitudes. I wonder how they would react if someone, somewhere were to turn a group of noisy kids, armed with sticky treats, loose in City Hall, and refuse to take them back home until the after-school program is funded? I urge all young activists who have not read this book to buy a copy. And for those who have read it, perhaps it's time for a remedial course in real, effective activism.

Good. Conservatives and liberals both should read it. Well written.
