May 1968 has become as celebrated for its sayings and its slogans as its events. Here is a selection, in French and then in English translation, of some of the most characteristic maxims, aphorisms and platitudes from the pamphlets and graffiti of the Paris of 40 years ago. Some are predictably left-libertarian. Others are funny and anarchical. A few look forward to the Green politics that hardly existed in 1968. * Il est interdit d'interdire. (It is forbidden to forbid.)
So lets be clear. If you sit out the vote, or vote 3rd party, who is the first responder that cleans up the trainwreck? The DNC! And they have lost their momentum for a decade because of the Supreme Court picks. We have to focus on the big picture and not win the battle only to lose the war.
