The Russians have a saying that there are always two revolutions --
the first one which brings down the old order, and the second one
where the people who bided their time during the first revolution
spring into action and take power while liquidating the
revolutionaries of the first group.

So to Antifa I say this in all sincerity: "You guys are #1!"

Those who are fed up with everything could be inclined to say
"bring it on!"

Although history tends to repeat, things are NEVER the same
the second time around :wry_smile:
