Why be a delegate?

Edited transcript of remarks at a meeting

Alright, we’re ready now.  Not all issues
are black and white.  Not all issues
are about how to fight.  But the facts
are: this one’s different.  We’re not it.

A creature marries.  Is reborn.  It
marries again.  The history, thus,
lives on.  A moving feast.  Our structure:
it’s ad hoc, sure, but improving.

And can I just say?  Can I just?
Say that they have to, now,
building and strengthening, building
our networks, some of our members.

The structure grows.  It goes thus:
you’re at the coal-face.  You are,
you are our members, a structure
that informs and helps us grow.

Growth is systematic activity,
and it relates to our peculiar
structure.  Over time, this devolves
into a kind of third party activism.

You look!  They pay their fees.  They
expect their — what are they going
to do?  You look, and we’ll review it.
Unpack it.  Finesse it even.  Of course.
