Sharing The Words OfΒ @DSearls

I was only a year old when Gandhi was shot, so I don’t remember that one; but I was involved in both the civil rights and antiwar movements in North Carolina when Martin Luther King was gunned down in June 1968, and Bobby Kennedy a few days later.

I cannot overstate the senses of grief, despair and hopelessness that followed those two assassinations. (And of Malcolm X three years earlier. And again when Nixon got elected a few months later in ’68.) Two things were clear to me at the time: that violence won, and that the civil rights and antiwar movements were set back decades by those events. < p class=β€œattribution”>Doc Searls Read It All Here.
