Be Revolutionary!

The theme of this year’s SLA (Special Libraries Association) Annual Conference in Boston: Be Revolutionary!  So, I thought I would consult my copy of The Cynic’s Dictionary by Aubrey Dillon-Malone, to see how they defined “revolution” and “revolutionary.”  Here’s what I found out . . .

Revolution:
” A trivial shift in the emphasis of suffering.”  (Tom Stoppard)

“An attempt to substitute misrule for bad government.”  (Anthony Butler)

Revolutionary:
“Someone who ends up either as an oppressor or a heretic.”  (Albert Camus)
