that goes by that name now is bound to be experienced.
- Barbara Deming

After the revolution, it might very well remain necessary

But the one under restraint should be cut off from
the rest of society as little as possible.

- Barbara Deming

I think the only choice that will enable us to hold to our vision...
is one that abandons the concept of naming enemies
