Eat the audience

"Our enemy really isn't capitalism, it's cynicism. That's one of the things I learned from Woody (Guthrie)... not to be cynical... that cynicism... It destroys you, it rots away from the inside. So that sense of optimism and humanity... which 20 years ago I would have called Socialism but now I'll call compassion... you know, that idea is still out there and alive and if you can plug into that and encourage that it makes it all worth while."
— Billy Bragg
