… [was] Frank Mankiewicz … talking in the past, present or future when he said … that he learned from Robert Kennedy that “the practice of American politics … can be both joyous and honorable.” … I think it’s important not to avoid the idea that reality in America might in fact be beyond the point where even the most joyous and honorable kind of politics can have any real effect on it. And I think we should also take a serious look at the health/prognosis for the whole idea of Participatory Democracy, in America or anywhere else.
