Re: The Danger of Youth to Our Movement

You have already marginalized these kids by excluding their voices. Your methods of organization does not speak to them and you have done a terrible job reaching out to them. While it may not be appropriate to create a ruckus at a meeting, it is also not appropriate to condescend to those who point to a lack of diversity or a top-down organization.

I don't know what kind of future you're fighting for: I am not an anarchist, but I am more than willing to work with people who are and I feel that their youthful energy has done nothing but benefitted activism in Kansas City.

Put these kids back in their place? You sound like someone whose commitment to social change is lacking. Sharon Lockhart's article was elitist and arrogant, much like your own.

If there are youthful activists who happen to see the connection between war and capitalism and who decide that only by moving past the latter will we ever eliminate the former, I believe there voices are needed and we should instead be praising their activities and finding how to support them. They have been responsible for bringing a great deal of the people who show up at your rallies. It's your job to return the favor and give them a hand.
