We thought we were going to make them world citizens

We thought we were going to make them world citizens. All of us had traveled , we'd been around, abroad , and we'd read all this stuff, and we were going to bring all this enlightenment to the people. We knew how to do it-organize unions and cooperatives and political action and have educational programs. We knew about how to do those things . Some of us had done some of it before. All of us had some experience before. We were further along in our political thinking than most people in the United States at that time. So we thought we were pretty good , but the people didn't pay any attention to anything we were doing. Nothing we were doing they reacted to. We couldn't even talk a language they understood .
