I’m old enough to remember burning cities in the late 60s. Everyone who lived through that time took away their own lessons. Here’s the lesson I took away:
The power structure never gives an inch voluntarily. Not one inch. You want their cooperation? There’s only one way: SCARE THE HELL OUT OF THEM.
Anyone who doesn’t understand the direct cause-effect relationship between the burning cities of 1967 and the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1968 understands NOTHING about how power works.
