Robert did an interview Orwell Rolls in His Grave director Robert Kane Pappas for In These Times:


I think sometimes on our side we have a tendency to give them too much power by saying that they shut out our ideas because they’re political. Sometimes they shut out our ideas because we do a lousy job of presenting them. If we’re going to play within this game, which is a system of media run for profit, we have to get better at playing by the existing rules. ... All too often, our side wants a knight in shining armor; we expect a politician to come and save us. It’s not going to happen.
