The Foundations of Kindness is a tale of love, politics, murder and assassination in Sixties Chicago told from the vantage point of the mountains of British Columbia in the Seventies. Plus contemporary commentary. Young revolutionaries take on the Chicago Democratic Party machine with disastrous consequences for them and their movement. Fifty years later some of them are older, wiser, weaker but uncowed.
We were kids on a raft we called The Movement, for we were moving constantly, tempest tossed on a raging sea of politics. We had heard rumours of a maelstrom but had little idea of what we were getting into and once into it, it, not we, determined how we would come out of it. If we would come out of it.
