... And the creator gave her to Man so that the earth should be
p pulated.
A few days later Man went to Ridjalu l'Ghabib and said:
'Lord, the woman you gave me poisons my life. She chatters
without a pause, she wastes all my time, she wails of every little thing
and she is constantly ailing.'
Thereupon the Creator took back his gift in order to punish Man.
llardly a week passed and the Man appeared again, saying: 9
'Lord, I am most desolate since you took back the woman. She
was always singing and dancing. Now I cannot help remembering all
the time how sweetly she looked upon me, how skilled she was in
k1 sing me, how delightfully we played together and how she sought
m r protection ... '
The Creator gave him back the woman.
Not even 3 days had passed when Man was once again standing in
front of the Creator to complain.
'Lord,' he said, 'I simply cannot understand this - but if I strike a
careful balance, woman causes me more annoyance than pleasure.
Please, rid me of her.'
But the Creator said: 'Do what you consider best. In order to live
in peace with your wife and be able to bear her presence, she shall owe
you obedience from now on.'
But Man replied hopelessly: 'I cannnot live with her.'
'Can you live without her then?' asked the Creator.
Whereupon Man hung his head and said sadly: 'Alas for me! I can
live neither with nor without her!'

Freedom is a habit
and a coat worn
some born to wear it
some never to know it.
Freedom is cheap
or again as a ga1ment
is so costly
men pay their lives
rather than not have it.
Freedom is baffling:
men having it often
know not they have it
till it is gone and
they no longer have it.
What does this mean?
Is it a riddle?
Yes, it is first of all
in the primers of riddles.
"People commonly speak of a
'social problem' when something
in society does not work the
way it is supposed to according
to the official interpretations."
"""fiN'e must preserve the universities.
But beware of the Fatal
Friendliness. When universities
serve the status quo, they must
be changed. There should be
continued ferment, demonstrations,
education, enlightenment. Of
course there are things which are
not planned - forces, mechanisms
. . . The best students are
Socialist but not Marxist. They
don't want a Stalinist bureaucracy.
They want a transvaluation of
values - social protest on a high
level of prosperity and comfort,
but against that high level of
prosperity and comfort. The price
of freedom is high! But they
refuse the state of total
domination by goods and comfort."
":E;ecause we are well acquainted

"There is nothing, in this day of America, that

apathy among her people."
In dedication . . .
We are the people of this generation, bred in at least modest comfort, housed in universities, looking
uncomfortably to the world we inherit.
Our work is guided by the sense that we may be the last generation in the experiment with living.
But we are a minority - the vast majority of our people regard the temporary equilibriums of our
society and the world as eternally-functional parts. In this is perhaps the outstanding paradox: We
ourselves are imbued with urgency, yet the message of our society is that there is no viable alternative
to the present. Beneath the reassuring tones of the politicians, beneath the common opinion that
America will "muddle through", beneath the stagnation of those who have closed their minds to the
future, is the pervading feeling that there simply are no alternatives, that our times have witnessed the
exhaustion not only of Utopias, but of any new department as well. Feeling the press of complexity
upon the emptiness of life, people are fearful of the thought that at any moment things might tbr ist
out of control. They fear change itself, since change might smash whatever invisible framework seem<;
to hold back chaos for them now. For most Americans, all crusades are suspect, threatening. The fant
that each individual sees apathy in his fellows perpetuates the common reluctance to organize for
changes. The dominant institutions are complex enough to blunt the minds of their potential criticc;, ri::cl
entrenched enough to swiftly dissipate or entirely repel the energies of protest and ref mm, thus liu.1 ting
human expectancies. Then, too, we are a materially improved society, and by our own improvenwnts
we seem to have weakened the case for change.
Some would have us believe that Americans feel contentment amidst prosperity - but might il u >t
better be called a glaze above deeply felt anxieties about their role in the new world? And if these an.neties
produce a developed indifference to human affairs, do they not as well produce a yearniIJg .,.o
believe there is an alternative to the present, that something can be done to change circumstances 1 '
the school, the workplaces, the bureaucracies, the government? It is to this latter yearning, at once the
spark and engine of change, that we direct our present appeal. The search for truly democratic ulternatives
to the present, and a commitment to social experimentation with them, is a worthy and fulfilliM;
human enterprise, one which moves us and, we hope, others today . . .
Making values explicit - an initial task in establishing alternatives - is an activity that has betn
devalued and corrupted. The conventional moral terms of the age, the politician moralities ("free world',
"peoples democracies") reflect realities poorly, if at all, and seems to function more as ruling myths
than as descriptive principles. But neither has our experience in the universities brought us moral
enlightenment. Our professors and administrators sacrifice controversy to public relations; their curriculums
change more slowly than the living events of the world; their skills and silence are purchased by
investors in the arms race; passion is called unscholastic. The questions we might want raised - what is
really important? can we live in a different and better way, if we wanted to change society, how would
we do it? - are not thought to be questions of a "fruitful, empirical nature," and thus are brushed
Unlike youth in other countries we are used to moral leadership being exercised and moral dimensions
being clarified by our elders. But today, for us, not even the liberal and socialist preachments
of the past seem adequate to the forms of the present. Consider the old slogans: Capitalism Cannot
Reform Itself, United Front Against Fascism, General Strike, ~.11 Out on May Day. Or, more recently,
No Cooperation with Commies and Fellow Travelers, Ideologies Are Exhausted, Bipartisanship, No
Utopias. These are incomplete, and there are few new prophets. It has been said that our liberal and
socialist predecessors were plagued by vision without program, while our own generation is plagued
by program without vision. All around us there is astute grasp of method, technique - the committee,
the ad hoc group, the lobbyist, the hard and soft sell, the make, the projected image - but, if pressed
critically, such expertise is incompetent to explain its implicit ideals. Jt is highly fashionable to identify
('neself by old categories, or by naming a respected political figure, or by explaining "how we would
vote" on various issues.
Theoretic chaos has replaced the idealistic thinking of old - and, unable to reconstitute theoretic
order, men have condemned idealism itself. Doubt has replaced hopefulness, and men act out a defeatism
that is labelled realistic. The decline of utopia and hope is in fact one of the defining features of
social life today. The reasons are various: The dreams of the older left were perverted by Stalinism and
never recreated; the congressional stalemate makes men narrow view of the possible; the specialization
.~t human activity leaves little room for sweeping thought; the horrors of the twentieth century, sym-
~ olized in the gas ovens and concentration camps and atom bombs, have blasted hopefulness. To have
110 serious aspirations, on the contrary, is to be "tough-minded".
In suggesting social goals and values, therefore, we are aware of entering a sphere of some disre-
-pute. Perhaps matured by the past, we have no sure formulas, no closed theories - but that does not
.1nean values are beyond discussion and tentative dete1mination. A first task of any social movement
;~ to convince people that the search for orienting theories and the creation of human values is complex
hut worthwhile. We are aware that to avoid platitudes we must analyze the concrete conditions of social
Pider. But to direct such an analysis we must use the guideposts of basic principles. Our own social
values involve conceptions of human beings, human relationships, and social systems.
We regard men as infinitely precious and possesed of unfulfilled capacities for reason, freedom and
love. In affirming these principles we are aware of countering perhaps the dominant conceptions of
man in the twentieth century: That he is a thing to be manipulated, and that he is inherently incapable
of directing his own affairs. We oppose the depersonalization that reduces human beings to the status
of things. If anything, the brutalities of the twentieth century teach that means and ends are intimately
related, that vague appeals to "posterity" cannot justify the mutilations of the present. We oppose, too,
the doctrine of human incompetence because it rests essentially on the modern fact that men have been
"competently" manipulated into incompetence. We see little reason why men cannot meet with increasing
skill the complexities and responsibilities of their situation, if society is organized not for minority participation
but for majority participation in decision-making.
Men have unrealized potential for self-cultivation, self-direction, self-understanding, and creativity.
It is this potential that we regard as crucial and to which we appeal - not to the human potentiality
for violence, unreason, and submission to authority. The goal of man and society should be human
independence: A concern not with image or popularity but with finding a meaning in life that is personally
authentic; a quality of mind not compulsively driven by a sense of powerlessness, nor one which
unthinkingly adopts status values, nor one which represses all threats to its habits, but one which openly
faces problems which are troubling and unresolved-one with an intuitive awareness of possibilities, an
active sense of curiosity, an ability and willingness to learn.
This kind of independence does not mean egotistic individualism; the object is not to have one's
way so much as it is to have a way that is one's own. Nor do we deify man - we merely have faith in
his potential.
Human relationships should involve fraternity and honesty. Human interdependence is contemporary
fact; human brotherhood must be willed, however, as a condition of future survival and as th;;,
most appropriate form of social relations. Personal links between man and man are needed, especially tu
go beyond the partial and fragmentary bonds of function that bind men only as worker to worker, em
ployer to employee, teacher to student, American to Russian.
Loneliness, estrangement, isolation describe the vast distance between man and man today. Thef•:
dominant tendencies cannot be overcome by better personnel management, nor by improved gadgetc;;
but only when a love of man overcomes the idolatrous worship of things by man.
As the individualism we affirm is not egoism, the selflessness we affirm is not self-elimination. 0,,
the contrary, we believe in generosity of a kind that imprints one's unique individual qualities in the
relation to other men, and to all human activity. Further, to dislike isolation is not to favor the abolitim1
of privacy; the latter differs from isolation in that it occurs or is abolished according to individual wil'.
In the last few years, thousands of American students demonstrated that they at least felt the ur
gency of the times. They moved actively and directly against racial injustices, the threat of war, violations
of individual rights of conscience and, less frequently, against economic manipulation. They succeeded
in restoring a small measure of controversy to the campuses after the stillness of the McCarth)I,
period. They succeeded, too, in gaining some concessions from the people and institutions they opposed
especially in the fight against racial bigotry.
The significance of these scattered movements lies not in their success or failure in gaining objectives
- at least not yet. Nor does the significance lie in the intellectual "competence" or "maturity"
of the students involved - as some pedantic elders allege. The significance is in the fact that the students
are breaking the crust of apathy and overcoming the inner alienation - facts that remain the
defining characteristics of American college life.
If student movements for change are rarities still on the campus scene, what is commonplace there?
The real campus, the familiar campus, is a place of private people, engaged in their notorious "inner
emigration." It is a place of commitment to business-as-usual, getting ahead, playing it cool. It is a
place of mass affirmation of the Twist, but mass reluctance toward the controversial public stance. Rules
are accepted as "inevitable", bureaucracy as "just circumstance", irrelevance as "scholarship", selflessness
as "martyrdom", politics as "just another way to make people, and an unprofitable one, too".
Almost no students value activity as a citizen. Passive in public, they are hardly more idealistic. in
arranging their private lives; Gallup concludes they will settle for "low success, and won't risk high
failures." There is not much willingness to take risks (not even in business), no setting of dangerous
goals, no real conception of personal identity except one manufactured in the image of others, no real
urge for personal fulfillment except to be almost as successful as the very successful people. Attention
is being paid to social status (the quality of shirt collars, meeting people, getting wives or husbands,
making solid contacts for later on); much, too, is paid to a9ademic status (grades, honors, the med
school rat-race). But neglected generally is real intellectual status, the personal cultivation of the mind.
Look beyond the campus, to America itself. That student life is i:nore intellectual, and perhaps
more comfortable, does not obscure the fact that the fundamental qualities of life on the campus reflect
the habits of society at large. The fraternity president is seen at the junior manager levels; the sorority
1p1een has gone to Grosse Point; the serious poet bums for a place, any place, to work; the once serious
rnd never-serious poets work at the advertising agencies. The desperation of people threatened by
imces about which they know little and of which they can say less, the cheerful emptiness of people
o;:ving up all hope of changing things, the faceless ones polled by Gallup who listed "international af-
: -;.irs" fourteenth on their list of problems but who also expected thermonuclear war in the next few
,·, ars - in these and other forms, Americans are in withdraw! from public life, from any collective
t dmt at directing their own affairs.
Some regard these national doldrums as a sign of healthy approval of the established order, but
1~ it approval by consent or by manipulated acquiescence? Others declare that the people are withdrawn 139
: cause compelling issues are fast disappearing; perhaps there are fewer breadlines in America, but is
f:rn Crow gone, is there enough work and is work more fulfilling, is world war a diminishing threat, and
what of the revolutionary new peoples? Still others think the national quietude is a necessary consequ"'
nce of the need for elites to resolve complex and specialized problems of modem industrial society.
r\ut. then, why should business elites help decide foreign policy, and who controls the elites anyway,
.,;,fl are they solving mankind's problems? Others finally shrug knowingly and announce that full de-
.. r1cracy never worked anywhere in the past - but why lump qualitatively different civilizations to-
!; 'ther, and how can a social order work well if its best thinkers are skeptics, and is man really doomed
fu:cver to the domination of today?
There are no convincing apologies for the contemporary malaise ... The apathy is, first, subjechv€..
- the felt powerlessness of ordinary people, the resignation before the enormity of events. But subtcctive
apathy is encouraged by the objective American situation - the actual separation of people from
pov;er, from relevant knowledge, from pinnacles of decision-making. Just as the university influences
the student way of life, so do major social institutions create the circumstances in which the isolated
c1Lizen will try hopelessly to understand his world and himself.
The very isolation of the individual - from power and community and ability to aspire - means
the rise of a democracy without publics. With the great mass of people structurally remote and psychologically
hesitant with respect to democratic institutions, those institutions themselves attenuate
and become, in a fashion of the vicious circle, progressively less accessible to those few who aspire to
serious participation in social affairs. The vital democratic connection between community and leadership,
between the mass and the several elites, has been so wrenched and perverted that disastrous
policies go unchallenged time and again . . .
The first effort, then, should be to state a vision: vVhat is the perimeter of human possibility in this
epoch? ... The second effort, if we are to be politically responsible, is to evaluate the prospects for obtaining
at least a substantial part of that vision in our epoch: vVhat are the social forces that exist, or that
must exist, if we are to be successful? And what role have we ourselves to play as a social force?
"Students don't even give a damn about apathy," one has said. Apathy toward apathy begets a
privately constructed universe, a place of systematic study schedules, two nights each week for beer,
a girl or two, and early marriage - a framework infused with personality, warmth, and under control
no matter how unsatisfying otherwise.
Under these conditions unviersity life loses all relevance to some. Four hundred thousand of ou1
classmates leave college each year.
But apathy is not simply an attitude; it is a product of social institutions, and of the structures ai, •
organization of higher education itself. The extracurricular life is ordered according to in loco parent/
theory, which ratifies the administration as the moral guardian of the young. The accompanyfog "let ·
pretend" theory of student extracurricular affairs validates student government as a training ccnt(•r fc r
those who want to spend their lives in political pretense, and discourages initiative from more articulatf.
honest and sensitive students. The bounds and style of controversy begins. The university "prepare-;"
the student for "citizenship" through perpetual rehearsals and, usually, through emasculation of wlrnl
creative spirit there is in the individual.
The academic life contains reinforcing counterparts to the way in which extracurricular life is o
ganized. The academic world is founded in a teacher-student relation analogous to the parent-child n··
lation which characterized in loco parentis. Further, academia includes a radical separation of studen~
from the material of study. That which is studied, the social reality, is "objectified" to sterility, clividin'.'
the student from life - just as he is restrained in active involvement by the deans controlling studm1t
government. The specialization of function and knowledge, admittedly necessary to our complex technological
and social structure, has produced an exaggerated compartmentialization of study and under-·
standing. This has contributed to: An overly parochial view, by faculty, of the role of its research an,1
scholarship; a discontinuous and truncated understanding, by students, of the surrounding social orde1,
a loss of personal attachment, by nearly all, to the worth of study as a humanistic enterprise.
There is finally, the cumbersome academic bureaucracy extending throughout the academic as well
as extracurricular sh·uctures, conh·ibuting to the sense of outer complexity and inner powerlessness that
transforms so many students from honest searching to ratification of convention and, worse, to a numbness
to present and future catastrophes. The size and financing systems of the university enhance the
permanent trusteeship of the administrative mentality within the university. Huge foundations and other
private financial interests shape the under-financed colleges and universities, making them not only
more commercial but less disposed to diagnose society critically, less open to dissent. Many social and
physical scientists, neglecting the liberating heritage of higher learning, develop "human elations" or
"morale producing" techniques for the corporate economy, while otheiis exercise their intellectual -skills
to accelerate the arms race.
The university is located in a permanent position of social influence. Its educational function makes
it indispensable and automatically makes it a crucial institution in the formation of social attitudes. In
an unbelievably complicated world, it is the central institution for organizing, evaluation, and transrn;
tting knowledge ... Social relevance, the accessibility to knowledge, and internal openness - these
t-o,~e-ther make the university a potential base and agency in the movement of· social change.
1. Any new left in America must be, in large measure, a left with real intellectual skills, committed
t,\ deliberativeness, honesty, and reflection as working tools. The university permits the political life to
I ,t· an adjunct to the academic one, and action to be informed by reason.
2. A new left must be distributed in significant social roles throughout the country. The universitif\;'.\
'lre distributed in such a mannner.
3. A new left must consist of younger people who matured in the post-war world, and must be
ected to the recruitment of younger people. The university is an obvious beginning point.
4. A new left must include liberals and socialists, the former for their relevance, the latter for their
•,f ise of thoroughgoing reforms in the system. The university is a more sensible place than a political
, ,·u ty for these two traditions to begin to discuss their differences and look for political synthesis.
5. A new left must start controversy across the land, if national policies and national apathy are
J be reversed. The ideal university is a community of controversy, within itself and in its effects on
.._ ''mmunities beyond.
6. A new left must transform modern complexity into issues that can be understood and felt closenp
hy every human being. It must give form to the feelings of helplessness and indifference, so that
ti• ':lple may see the political, social, ·and economic sources of their private troubles and organize to
hcJ.nge society. In a time of supposed prosperity, moral complacency, and political manipulation, a new
l, tt cannot rely on only aching stomachs to be the engine force of social reform. The case for change, for
,ttc,rnatives that will involve uncomfortable personal efforts, must be argued as never before. The uni-
,,-ersity is a relevant place for all of these activities.
To turn these possibilities into realities will involve national efforts at university refonn by an alliance
of students and faculty. They must wrest control of the educational process from the administrative
bureaucracy. They must make fraternal and functional contact with allies in labor, civil rights,
and other liberal forces outside the campus. They must make debate and controversy, not dull pedantic
chant, the common styles for educational life. They must consciously build a base for their assault
upon the loci of power.
As students for a democratic society, we are committed to stimulating this kind of social movement,
this kind of vision and program in campus and community across the country. If we appear to seek the
unattainable as it has been said, then let it be known that we do so to avoid the unimaginable.

Hail the mighty Leica
Hail the mighty Leicaflex
A chapter in time written in New York,
August 1968
adversity, with its onion breath
casts the mold
for all who would speak after him
and we, who are left here to remain
in the wake of his tasteless odor
can but lift our heads in song
. . . and so we sang
and the eagle sadly shook his head
then turned and coughed
as if to die
old friends like law and justice
quarreled then parted
left alone, the flop haired secretary
pausing to take the last and careful notes
. . . and still we sang
laboring, under the search
for the lost passage of truth
hampered by the visions
from the eye of a lone assasin
whom, in one second ·
equaled the violence
of a thousand black streetcorners
on a thousand days
. . . and still we sing
immersed in the quest for love
sealed by the fears of lonely frustration
heated by steaming tears
thoughts unanswered
and his notes still float in our minds
as not, my friends
for gentle is not yet the way
and still, we sing.
Sid Goldstein
