Actually January of '92.
I just realized that Soundgarden was the first show I ever saw. Opening for Gn'R at the Target Center in February of '91. Did not understand what I was watching.
True, but it also reflects his high offensive rebound rate--lots of touches right under the basket. His ORR was higher than any other of the top 15 small forwards in the league.
@junea I think one of the problems here is that the word revolution it is an incredibly historically complex and packed loaded word. using it as an assumed touchpoint about any material reality is sketchy and confusing
Agreed completely. Which was another strange thing about the Bernie campaign. "Movement" probably a much more apt word.
Also, I will absolutely get you started on Hegel.
Though I would love to be proven wrong in this case. It would be really cool if he could turn his campaign into some kind of long-term organization advocating for the stuff he campaigned on.
Absolutely, but I just think that for many reasons the presidency is the wrong place to organize a revolution. Too dependent on one individual figure, too top-down, too confined to elections. Presidents respond to revolutions.
Imo there was something a little Trump-y in the way that Bernie called for a "political revolution" around his own candidacy.
@Finn McCool Every disenfranchised Sanders supporter needs to go get themselves elected Precinct Chair in their district.
Yup or at least register as a Democrat.
@kbollox at least accept that politics isn't a one time, win or go home game..
And also that the figure of the president isn't the political messiah that some Bernie supporters seem to believe.
