  The one big great Russian Revolution of 1917.

  When in rough seas, one can't really see what is behind the next big wave. 
One has to be prepared to swift and decisive changes. That is part of the 
_art_ of revolution. 
  If you want certainty about each and every step following the next step, 
and the step following that, you are incapable to move.

  Why clandestine? It can be very open and public. The more, the better. It is 
all just up to the concrete situation. Leading the revolution before and after 
taking power is an _art,_ not a science.
