the revolutionary personality

Every morning, before I do anything else, I read from the book, Peacemaking - Day by Day. Here's an excerpt from the entry for 9 June: 'Fromm describes the 'revolutionary personality' as a person who is independent, who has the capacity to identify deeply with humanity and who has the ability to disobey in the interest of more fundamental values.'
I like the flame of that one candle, like the arm of a revolutionary. Strong in its peace.
