Quote of the Day

Today is my birthday, so you get two for the price of one. From the same source, no less.

Before people can mobilize for collective action, they have to develop a proud and angry identity and a set of claims that go with that identity. They have to go from being hurt and ashamed to being angry and indignant. . . .
Frances Piven, leftist firebrand from the 60s.
The quote was from Jan 10th, so we have here proof she's never grown up. I suppose it takes a while to get over being hurt and ashamed at constantly being called a lazy good-for-nothing hippie. You get to be angry and indignant when the government announces its cutting off your allowance, which enabled you to maintain the lifestyle of a lazy good-for-nothing hippie.
