All afternoon activists confront you to correct your rumored reaction to the film.

No, no, you assure them, you've heard a garbled version of my comments. I'm only saying there were no neat transitions from one phase of organization to another. Reality was more messy. The filmmakers have struggled to condense big sloppy life into short neat narrative and their solution has been to impose a type of linear order which didn't exist in truth. Oh, of course, say the activists. All is forgiven.

For you, this is one type of political work. You're teaching the newbies how to think unevenness.
