A gumball would taste mighty good, but a balloon would be a lot more fun… I’ll take a balloon! Sooner or later in life a person has to learn to make decisions! (Sees someone with a different color balloon) Gee, I wish I’d bought a RED balloon.

Revolutionaries do not only have different ideas (or even actions) from pseudo-revolutionaries. What they are is different, and the way they act is.
