32. i'm talking about continuity --
notably in the 19th century in america -- til now -- efforts have been continuous -- that you weren't aware is a different matter.

but it never stopped -- it owes nothing to any other movement -- it precedes ghandi -- it has been it's own movement for a very long time.
