I'm quite open to ideas of how revolutions should or must take place - 
especially as venerable ones as the ideas of the likes of Vladimir Lenin 
- though I've yet to come to any conclusion except that I'd rather not 
come to a conclusion.

But whatever the hell you've got in mind for revolution is nothing I 
want much to do with, no matter how Leninist is may be, and you can bet 
I'll be attacking it with all my anarchistic instinct.

Human: An animal so lost in loathing contemplation of what it thinks it 
is as to overlook what it ought to be.
