Monsters of History

Sherene - 21 years old, first year university - Member of the Kurdish woman's protection unit fighting ISIS in Kobani

In response to the Quote of the Decade at WRSA, freedomistas (a term I picked up from WRSA) are notoriously independent, private and self-sufficient, all things that work against "outreach." But, let me be as blunt as "local, local, local": at some point those who survived and even put up some sort of resistance and right now, we don't even know against whom we might be resisting, will have to coalesce.  Wars are not won on the battlefield, they are won at the treaty table. One does not get a seat at the treaty table unless they have made such a nuisance of themselves that they are requested to sit at the treaty table.  No group of individuals, 20-30, will be asked to sit and have leverage to rise up from the table and continue the shenanigans.
