Why I Ain't a Marchin' Anymore

"The great downfall of the US antiwar movement has been its dogged insistence on a multi-issue approach," writes Justin Raimondo, noting that "these rallies all have the same character and tone: the whole litany of grievances is laid out, and every victim group gets to lodge its particular complaint" — Getting Beyond ‘Left’ and ‘Right’.

That's the way I remember back in 1991, when I stopped protesting. It was not enough to oppose the war, every leftist cause under the sun was on parade. Is it any wonder nobody cared. It seemed the protests were more about the protesters themselves than the cause.

This is shapoing up to be quite a bender! Last time I was in NYC, I got quite drunk at Tommy Makem's bar, and there's even photographic evidence with the man himself.
