Success is not a single all or nothing affair. Of course we want to prevent war in Iraq. And of course doing so would be a world transforming, historic achievement. But, should war proceed, it would not mean that we are failing, but only that we have a little less power than we hoped to have at this point yet far more than most people were willing to even dream about just a year ago. Whether this war occurs or not, our on-going task is unchanged. We must grow larger, more conscious, more militant, more organized–to try to prevent this war and the next one, to reverse globalization, and to continually challenge and eventually replace basic defining institutions. None of this will happen overnight. But we are on a path toward all of it, and we need to realize that’s our trajectory, to take it seriously, and to work tirelessly toward it.
