I had been reading Political Messianism, by J. L. Talmon, which described nationalism and socialism as secular religions that lacked a doctrine of original sin. After reading Talmon’s account, I began to wish that I had inherited such a concept. The idea of original sin—that we are born flawed, that the capacity for evil is lodged within us (no matter how our consciousness may be raised)—would have instilled in me a necessary caution about individuals like Huey Newton, and movements like ours. There were people who had a will to evil that no amount of political enlightenment could overcome. Nor could any movement (no less humanity) hope to purge itself of the potential for evil that lurked in us all.
