‘‘...We place our courage today in «doing as our friends do» and ‘‘maintaining our standards’’. And when we are being open, we are ready - even willing - with kindness and distinction, to expand those standards.
But I don’t want us to expand the standards to include the abnormal in what would be the new standard of tomorrow.
Rather, I would like us to be able to accept that which is outside the norm, that which has perhaps not yet been made fashionable, that which perhaps just seems strange to us.
And perhaps we don’t even need to understand it, but only to let it be there, to let it be, abnormal, outside, even without understanding.
But, my courageous fellows, I wish you in your turn, also to lack courage so- metimes, and to dare to go out even when you are not sure that you’re admi- rable. To dare to be together, vulnerable and miserable. And to dare to imagine that this is like this that the revolution proceeds.‘‘
