From time to time it is well worth reminding myself and others of how I view the world.
Take the overview, but keep an eye on the details.
In practice this means I will put my political energy in to those projects which very few people have the time or energy to engage upon.
In to those projects which take a lot of time to learn about.
I also believe that we can not indulge in thinking in terms of campaigning seasons, as the kind of crisis which we face need hours by days by weeks by months by years by decades of solid campaigning and social action.
The real problem is just how do we maintain such long term activities, while receiving very little or no support ?
This is very much a practical question which needs to be asked by anyone who is engaged in long term campaigning.
