Ideologically then, there are three obstacles to effective radical politics. They are 1.respect for the Constitution as a fair and equitable and democratic document; 2. the underlying belief that the US government is fair, acts justly, or would under ordinary circumstances; and 3. a reluctance on the part of most citzens whose values are at odds with those expressed by corporate and state policy to engage in confrontation…while we live on the edge of conflict, we live on the edge of history…when we intercede as ‘peacekeepers’ and stop the action of protestors because it is confrontational while at the same time we fail to do the same to agents of the state whom with our own eyes we watch commit violence, then we are peackeepers of a particular species. We are peace officers. We are police.
