Introduction by Harry the Human

I met Gregory, the twenty-four year old leader of the revolutionary group Mantis and author of the widely read essay, Introduction to Revolution (posted below), in the Bakersfield Woolworths, a week before the coronavirus stay-at-home order hit California.  We sat at an old-fashioned soda counter and talked for a long time.  Gregory is a visionary with many devoted followers.  They are tech savvy and have been growing their numbers through subtle Internet use and word-of-mouth.  I wish there had been a Mantis when I came of age in the 1960’s, but that was an era of post-war stalemate.  All we could do was compose interesting art and music.  There was no revolution to be had.  That stalemate is over.  Mantis is the group to join if you want your descendants to have a human life. 

I urged Gregory to let me start this blog.  He tends to be secretive, but he gave me permission to repost Introduction to Revolution.  

Gregory also assented to my posting here the future texts I was able to glean, from the presidential election of 2044, of the nomination acceptance speeches of Gregory's protegees (and former allies of each other), Anthony Roberts of the Scientific Humanist party and Rebecca Silversmith of the Cosmic Merger Party.  This is the only time I have been able to use my telepathic abilities to see the future.  The Time Artists (see link below) made their displeasure clear, but Gregory and I feel that events in the "real" world have reached a point where we need to try something new.

All the best, Harry the Human
