We are now faced with the fact that tomorrow is today. We are confronted with the fierce urgency of now. In this unfolding conundrum of life and history there is such a thing as being too late… Over the bleached bones and jumbled residue of numerous civilizations are written the pathetic words: ‘too late.’ … Now let us begin. Now let us rededicate ourselves to the long and bitter–but beautiful–struggle for a new world.
