I couldn't imagine it then, & I can't remember it now. One fragment.
A local Giap-Debray 'theorist' talked of how his little group of
about 5 was trying to implement Giap's concentration/expansion
dialectic (which of course assumed a strong popular base). I
made no effort to explore his logic. But I think you can see how
within a less comic context (i.e. a context in which the object went
beyond smashing a few windows) this theory might prove fatal to
anyone who acted on it.
