78. We need more professional leftists.
We need people who make a living being politically active and can spend 40 hours a week really getting an in-depth understanding of what's going on and finding ways to impart that knowledge to others and ways to make real change and do the work that's required in order to make that change.

That's one reason the right is so successful. Right-wing extremism is actually extremely profitable, so they have money to spend building up an army of professional ideologues.
