Can there be such a thing as an Un-National Holiday? Today would be a good candidate for one. We would certainly celebrate with dancing for it is Emma Goldman’s birthday. Emma Goldman was an anarchist, activist and writer who nowadays may be best known for a quote attributed to her, “If I can’t dance, I don’t want to be part of your revolution.” There is some debate if she actually said that, but the quote is in spirit of her writings and its sentiments hold true as much today as they did a century ago. Is there any better way to kill a party than with a humorless leftist?
Now, if you want to dance the Emma Goldman, it is really easy. The most important rule is that anyone can lead. Head up, look forward and always step to the left.
