The quotation comes from a poster of Dorothy Day at a United Farm Workers picket line. Day, a famous writer, activist, and anarchist, was often hauled to jail, reviled for her pacifistic steadfastness even during World War. After that her support of Communist ideals led Joe McCarthy's acolytes to dub her "Moscow Mary" during the heyday of the Red Scare. It was commies then, and terrorists now.
She lived exactly as she preached founding a network of "Catholic Worker Houses" to shelter and feed the homeless of all faiths or no faith at all.
Now the struggle for political-economic equality has passed to all of us, who cry for change. The time to act is right now, for us to no longer accept "this filthy, rotten system."
As the election approaches, maybe we can began to spread the seeds of change. No one else is going to do it. Dorothy Day even showed us the way to start: "The greatest challenge of the day is: how to bring about a revolution of the heart, a revolution which has to start with each one of us?"
