Fellow travellers

On waiting - Fredrik deBoer in NYT:

'Americans have lived in a capitalist system for generations; that will not be an easy obstacle for socialists to overcome.

But justice has waited for thousands of years, and we all must eventually come to terms with the fact that we don’t get to simply choose when it arrives.'

Justice and the Messiah.

What did Kafka say: 'The messiah will come only when he is no longer necessary; he will come only on the day after his arrival; he will come, not on the last day, but on the very last.'

Justice will come when justice is no longer needed. In the meantime, be patient.
