Revolutionary vs Reformer
"Do you know what makes a revolutionary...? Being an outsider looking in, coupled with the idealistic desire to create the one true, just community, coupled with the idealistic belief that you can. (sic) ... Idealists on the inside don't become revolutionaries. They just become reformers... Revolutionaries think about wiping everything out and starting all over."
(p 51 Beggars & Choosers by Nancy Kress
