Don’t Let Me Burn Out 

Any theory about revolution that doesn’t also grapple with how we have endured so much pain, that doesn’t trace it and seek to extract it from all of the deep, dark places that it reaches into…any theory of revolution that is unable to talk about collective ways of recovering from anguish, that fails in the first place to look at and confront all of the ways in which we have been hurt, badly, by systems of exploitation and degradation — is a mere exercise in intellectual abstraction.
