In the tradition of the ancient Hebrew prophets, Tikkun has been a strong critic of any unethical government or powerful group. At the same time we have espoused utopian dreams, firmly holding that every amazing historical advance towards a more equal and caring society has been dismissed as unrealistic and utopian right up to the moment it happened, at which point it has been deemed inevitable. Neither view is right. These advances would not have happened without activists who believed the most realistic thing to do was to dream big. Nonviolent change requires study, practice, spiritual depth, friends, and bold dreams and initiatives: in short, movements.
