“There are two main reasons for this. The capitalist class learned how to pacify revolutionary spirit and that was through promoting petty bourgeois ideology. The second reason of why revolutions haven’t been successful or even more difficult to make in imperialist centers is because of concessions.” — Will Griffin

    The heedless outnumber the heeding.
    The ignorant outnumber the curious.
    Etcetera, adnauseam.
