Reactionaries…react. By definition. And as little activists, that’s mostly what we’re doing. Bob said Fred said Tina said Raghav said…OMG isn’t it outrageous…quick!! get them!! But reacting isn’t leadership. What reactionaries don’t do, because they’re too busy reacting, is setting an example of a better, different, new, unimagined way. Yet that is precisely what leaders must do, if they are not just to convince and persuade, but inspire and elevate. The ideologues mind is closed — but the reactionary’s mind is shut. Ever defensive, oppositional, adversarial, the reactionary cannot create tomorrow.
