Here's a reply from an old pal from my broadcast daze. This on Facebook where I posted this video, and my comments first.

For years I've said the worst fate that can befall any revolution is victory because then the slogans and the fervor of opposition becomes the drudgery of making silk purses out of sow's ears, or the other way around. And it's not fun and it often doesn't work and the people who were so excited to toss the Molotov cocktail suddenly realize that, in this case, they burned up their social security checks, their SNAP benefits, their children's future.
