To the Red Brigades

colpirne uno per educarne cento

"Strike One to Educate One Hundred" -- Red Brigades

To the Red Brigades:

You may have "educated" me, but I have learned nothing from you.

You did not teach me to care about the working class. You did not teach me to think about the conditions in which other people live and work. Violence never inspires people to be more considerate of others.

Thoughtfulness and compassion improve the lives of other people. If you want a revolution, if you want better working conditions, if you want to help other people, then love other people.

Sincerely,
- Eryk
