Wilson Hines (wilsonhines) "Revolutionaries - true revolutionaries - are aggressive, ruthless, and generally seize the main chance, as William Henry Drayton did when he saw that stump-speaking was getting him nowhere. But defenders of the status quo tend toward caution and legalisms and inaction until it is too late" pg. 103

What a statement.

History doesn't repeat itself, but ideas do. What are your thoughts on this statement by the author?

Heather (thebookstand) | 6 comments Wow, Wilson, what a powerful statement. Thanks for sharing. So many things come to mind. It's the polar opposite of political correctness ... A true revolutionary will speak boldly without fear. (Hmm ... where have I heard that before?!) ... The truth shall set you free ... I took the road less traveled, and that has made all the difference.
