ON READERS’ COMMENTS
THIS IS just a brief editorial note to thank those few readers who responded to my appeal to write to the journal indicating just what they want it to contain. If there was a poor response, this does not mean that mass apathy is to blame. As revolutionaries, we must always look to ourselves and the inadequacies of our methods to seek the reasons for our lack of success and then we must modify our policies. Only then is it possible for us to blame the mass for their apathy or their quietism. What the few letters I did receive indicated was readers’ irritation with the number of theoretical pieces which were difficult to understand and with the imbalance between reports about Australian issues and overseas issues. They want more Australian content.
