Change is a pain

You know, all who fight for revolutionary change, that is, truly meaningful change are, if sensible, worried about consequences–these must be a central topic of conversation–and what the benefits are, both in the context of the current reality and the forces that cause it to be as it is. How far to go at each step, another important consideration, slow sometimes bad for gaining momentum, too fast, chance of error increases. Finding a balanced approach that is appropriate for the situation might mean some radical appearing action at the onset to deal with what might prevent the movement from getting going at the start. Too, trying to find compromise is sensible but only if possible without giving up what the fight–and it will be a fight–is about.
