Yeah, it really made for pretty twisted allegory. MLK was pretty adamant about RADICAL CHANGE. Whether he would have endorsed a "Fireman" Instinct/approach or not, he would have insisted perhaps to some degree like Farrakhan did on the Revolutionary principle of ALTER or ABOLISH. MLK would have had more profound and pronounced ideas about what to change with the system other than trying to maximize its potential utility for us, IMO.quote:Originally posted by MBM:
To put it another way, I think there is real INconsistency between Belafonte talking about REVOLUTION and REBELLION and then so adamantly saying we need to be firemen.
Doesn't make sense to me.
