As a radical in my youth, I attended a “Left-Right Conference” not long after Kent State — the intent was to promote a way to create a permanent change to our nation.
Though it has now succeeded, I contend it has been “hijacked” by those with malevolent intent. It didn’t start that way. Powerful movement leaders (both of the left and the right) put on this “conference” across the entire nation.
What the leaders (note partial list below) “preached” at us was their game-plan. Few could argue that it was not simple enough that it could work, and it has. The conference I attended along with my radical friends, was at USC, but similar conferences were taking place across the country – Columbia, Ann Arbor, Mi, Madison, etc.
WHAT THEY ASKED OF US:
That too was simple. They asked us to get ourselves into positions of power, to change America ….. we committed to at the very least, to become teachers and professors.
That was about 40 years ago and you can see it worked; you doubt this info? Google it! You’ll find names like, Ayers, Dohrn, Oblesby, Goldwater speech-writer, Hess, and yes, even Hillary Rodham. (I wrote about this 4 years ago).
