it's also about direct action.
example...the famous "white night" riots in san francisco, when the gay community rampaged after harvey milk's assassin was found guilty of a lesser charge and given only a few years of prison. (the image of the burning cop cars on the DK album is from white night.) Prior to the riots, sweeps of the gay neighborhoods had happened, with cops going into gay bars and randomly beating people up.
on the night of the riot, the cops tried that shit again. but this time they met resistance. and guess what.. to this day the cops no longer make violent, gay-bashing sweeps of the gay neighborhoods anymore.
the masses are not and will not be interested in our ideology until such time as the economy shows them that it has value. then they are going to be in streets doing the exact same things we've been doing, only with even more gusto. call it vanguardist, but we show the way.
