Truest statement of the week

I'm through supporting leaders whose status depends on our failure to challenge and criticize them when they deserve criticism. I'm finished with thin skinned leaders who don't tolerate open discussion of differences and who cannot or will not build bottom-up membership-driven democratic organizations. I'm done with leaders who don't encourage ordinary to get deeper into politics and economics, and who don't work to empower ordinary people to come up with their own visions and plans of how to build pieces of the new world.
