“There are decades where nothing happens; and there are weeks where decades happen” Vladimir Lenin
Political and social movements are often long difficult struggles to transform the world. However there are moments within history when this long process seems to telescope, when society seems to contort and previously submerged contradictions rise to prominence. A turning point is reached that is both the culmination and the vindication of the long work that has taken place before it; driving the movement to new heights and redefining what is possible. Often it is an unforeseen or seemingly typical event that sparks this shift. A single spark rapidly transforms a field of grass into a prairie fire, a moment into a movement.
