My weekend was pretty uneventful, just marking student papers on feminism, Vietnam war,
and the Black Panther.It was an educational experience, especially to read the B.P.'s
Ten points program
which stipulated that
We believe that the federal government
is responsible and obligated to give every person employment or a guaranteed income.

or this

We believe that if the landlords will not give decent housing
to our Black and oppressed communities, then housing and the land should be
made into cooperatives so that the people in our communities,
with government aid, can build and make decent housing for the people.

So they wanted justice and prosperity for all,
but how "can you make a revolution without executions?"
- and followed this Lenin's advice
