I originally learned of this piece by Dylan Hales over at Taki's magazine in "the Sniper's Tower" section and it was bolstered IMO with an earlier interview I saw of Carl Olgesby who spoke about those early days of SDS and the Panthers. It was very clear to me listening to Carl that both efforts were about de-centralization and localism and gaining local control. BTW: Listening to Carl, he said so little of Bill Ayers as he was maybe a hanger on instead of some leader. Now Ayers wife was another matter and Carl wasn't to kind there becaue of the violence itself. Carl believed in the non-violent approach and still does. Another believer in the FREE market. It's sad that localist (limited gov't) whites were so blinded by their Statist racism and false patriotism to completely miss the greater message being sent. Now that so many for example fight to eliminate the federal Dept. of Education and return schools to local control, had they sat down and listened to those early Panthers, the fight today might not even be happening and American education might be the better for it! It truth, we all want to breath free air! Hat off to Dylan for posting that at the paleo Taki's where even to my surprise he's not been attacked for it. It also goes right along with a larger discussion taking place across the anarcho-libertarian perspective on this same subject.
