Bill Ayers on Fresh Air

From Fresh Air, 11/18/2008:

“I think that I live with doubt today everyday all the time and it is different than being young and certain and jacking yourself up to do certain thigns. I argue to my students, I argue to young people all the time, that you can’t live a poilitical life, you can’t live a moral life, if you’re not willing to open your eyes and see the world more clearly, see the injustices going on, try to make yourselves aware of the injustices going on in the world. And when you are aware, you have a responsibility to act. And when you act you have a responsibility to doubt. And when you doubt you can’t get paralyzed – you have to use that doubt to act again. And that doubt then becomes the cycle: you open your eyes, you act, you doubt, you act, you doubt. Without doubt you become dogmatic, and shrill, and stupid. But without action you become cynical and passive and a victim of history. And that should never happen.”
