I am not interested in "thinkers". I am interested in revolutionaries. CLR
James spent an entire lifetime rallying the workers and the black masses on
3 continents. Robert Brenner is a tenured professor whose entire life
revolves around hosting academic conferences and writing for journals that
no worker will ever take note of in his or her life, unless one
accidentally fell on their head at a local library.
