“Help us to see the enemy’s point of view, to hear his questions, to know his assessment of ourselves. From his view we may indeed see the basic weakness of our condition, and if we are mature, we may learn and grow and profit from the wisdom of the brothers who are called the opposition.” (Martin Luther King — 1968)
In your theory of social change is your roseate vision unopposed? Do you assume that poverty, injustice, and fraudulence are without defenders? Who is called, as Martin King puts it, to opposition of the world we want? What can we learn from the wisdom of those who would keep up in our place?
