The one thing we see across the nation, not particularly in the chicano communities or college organizations or community organizations, is a lot of apathy. We see a lot of the _ p.re-war apathy coming back, the right wing attitudes and approaches to society. We see the emergence of n Ku klux klun not ju!lt as a Southern organization but as a national organization. We know what it is to have the John Birch Society as part of our neighborhood, living in the state of Colorado. In fact the Ku Klux Klan at one time ran everything politically in Denver and in the state of Colorado. So we are familiar with the right wing elements. We see that emergence coming on. We see students at the University of Colorado cele- brating an Alfred Packer Day, which means they are ·honor- ing the memory of a cannibal who ate his friends.

What the tools are to usE: to organize; something the ultra radical or right have been unab le to analyze (figure out). about our particular group. The two elements have really never penetrated the masses of our people, so I think it is important to explain what I mean by nationalism. There are three types of nationalism. There is regre~siue national- ism-the type of vicious nationalism · which produces the arian race, the Nazis who hate people of color, who consider themselves superior. There is progressive national- ism-that nationalism that uses the identity, the history, the cultural ties as tools to organize a mass qf ,p_eople in one political directio}\, which has been used by great leaders such as Ho Chi Mingh.
