Happy Birthday to SIAW

Belated anniversary greetings to SIAW. To quote from today's guest blogger, Hak Mao,
the commitment to the principles of universal, indivisible human rights and freedom of thought [must be] proclaimed. To fail to do this is to prolong the Age of Waiting.
Lenin once again, at the third Congress of the Comintern [**]:
The Party must go to the masses! Yes, the masses! And not turn into a sect!
That is what it's all about. (Can't help thinking that's a bit of the Roots creeping in there, but it works). There may be room for some discussion over "masses" or "classes" in the Negri and Hardt sense, but I'm in agreement with the sentiment.
