“Like being back in the 70s, or the late 60s”

Terry Eagleton, speaking about our recent teach-in in the New Statesman:

I think the Gramsci formula about pessimism of the intellect and optimism of the will gets at something. But I was struck, when I spoke recently at King’s College London, by the extraordinarily diverse number of militant projects and campaigns that were being either conducted or planned. It was like being back in the Seventies, or the late Sixties.
