    "The first thing you have to do is separate fantasy from reality. The publicity machine of the Alliance would have you believe that somehow all this came about because of what a few people did. But large political movements are rarely the workup of any one person. The individual at the center gives permission for others to act, can inspire others. But the individual really can not affect changes on an act of will. They did not do, they allowed others to do."
