275. Do you think that those who started in the 60's had enough people
No, when they first started, it was a small, dedicated, and grossly outnumbered group of hard-core, dedicated folks. You just personified the problem right there. Everybody keeps WAITING.

"Oh, we don't have enough people. Oh, this is too aggressive. Oh, I have a hair appointment. Oh, I can't get arrested because one day I want to work for so and so..."

Yeah, there it is. Well, I go whether or not I'm alone or with one million others. I do it because it's the right thing to do. I'm not waiting. I choose not to wait because I know that if there's ever going to really be a revolution it's going to take people to stand up regardless, whehter or not they have enough people or not.

Not having enough people is a problem. However, waiting until we have enough to act is a sure fire way to never have enough. You lead by example.
