The story of an imaginary word that managed to sneak past our editors and enter the dictionary. How to use a word that literally drives some people nuts.

The awkward case of 'his or her'. Or something like that. David Spritz is a man whose life has become the ultimate exercise in futility.

Each day, he wakes up and goes to a job that, despite paying a handsome salary, is entirely unfulfilling. His relationship with his ex-wife is strained, his relationship with his children distant.

To make things worse, his Pulitzer Prize winning father seems to be disappointed in what David has done with his life. In real life, progress in one's personal life is generally made in baby steps.

Usually, people don't undergo a drastic transformation over the course of several months. David attempts to improve his standing in life, at times failing entirely, at times succeeding in small doses.

The results of these attempts range from very funny to downright saddening, and this helps lend the film an air of realism. This is a complicated character study about a man coming to grips with the fact that he's failed to meet any of the goals he set for himself in life, despite attaining a social standing that many people are envious of.

There aren't any easy answers or life altering epiphanies; self-improvement is a long, gradual task that will probably never be completely fulfilled, and "The Weather Man" reflects this reality.

While not for all tastes, this movie deserves credit for tackling a relatively conventional subject in a very unconventional, at least for a mainstream Hollywood movie, manner.

I imagine that this film will be a bigger success overseas and on DVD than it will be in its US theatrical run. Start your free trial.

But we wanted to pick targets that showed to the public who was responsible for what was really going on. We were very careful from the moment of the townhouse on to be sure we weren't going to hurt anybody, and we never did hurt anybody.

Whenever we put a bomb in a public space, we had figured out all kinds of ways to put checks and balances on the thing and also to get people away from it, and we were remarkably successful.

In response to the death of Black Panther members Fred Hampton and Mark Clark in December during a police raid, on May 21, , the Weather Underground issued a " Declaration of War " against the United States government, using for the first time its new name, the "Weather Underground Organization" WUO , adopting fake identities, and pursuing covert activities only.

These initially included preparations for a bombing of a U. We've known that our job is to lead white kids into armed revolution.

We never intended to spend the next five to twenty-five years of our lives in jail. Ever since SDS became revolutionary, we've been trying to show how it is possible to overcome frustration and impotence that comes from trying to reform this system.

Kids know the lines are drawn: Tens of thousands have learned that protest and marches don't do it. Revolutionary violence is the only way.

Bernardine Dohrn subsequently stated that it was Fred Hampton's death that prompted the Weather Underground to declare war on the US government.

We felt that the murder of Fred required us to be more grave, more serious, more determined to raise the stakes and not just be the white people who wrung their hands when black people were being murdered.

In December , the Chicago Police Department, in conjunction with the FBI, conducted a raid on the home of Black Panther Fred Hampton, in which he and Mark Clark were killed, with four of the seven other people in the apartment wounded.

The survivors of the raid were all charged with assault and attempted murder. The police claimed they shot in self-defense, although a controversy arose when the Panthers, other activists and a Chicago newspaper reporter presented visual evidence, as well as the testimony of an FBI ballistics expert, showing that the sleeping Panthers were not resisting arrest and fired only one shot, as opposed to the more than one hundred the police fired into the apartment.

However, two weeks would pass without any occurrence. The explosion was preceded by a warning about six minutes prior to the detonation and was followed by a WUO claim of responsibility.

On July 23, , a Detroit federal grand jury indicted 13 Weathermen members in a national bombing conspiracy, along with several unnamed co-conspirators.

Ten of the thirteen already had outstanding federal warrants. Rumors also circulated that the funds were donated by an internationally known female folk singer in Los Angeles or by Elephant's Memory , which was John Lennon 's backup band in New York City and was a factor with the attempted deportation of Lennon, who had donated bail money for radical groups.

The damage caused flooding that destroyed computer tapes holding classified information. Other radical groups worldwide applauded the bombing, illustrated by German youths protesting against American military systems in Frankfurt.

In , the government requested dropping charges against most of the WUO members. The requests cited a recent decision by the Supreme Court of the United States that barred electronic surveillance without a court order.

In addition, the government did not want to reveal foreign intelligence secrets that a trial would require. Four months afterwards the cases were dismissed.

Patrick Gray , and the federal indictments of W. Mark Felt or "Deep Throat" and Edwin Miller and which, earlier, was the factor leading to the removal of federal "most-wanted" status against members of the Weather Underground leadership in The Politics of Revolutionary Anti-Imperialism.

Leftist newspapers praised the manifesto. Abbie Hoffman publicly praised Prairie Fire and believed every American should be given a copy.

Hundreds of above-ground activists helped further the new political vision of the Weather Underground.

Prairie Fire urged people to never "dissociate mass struggle from revolutionary violence". To do so, asserted Weather, was to do the state's work.

Just as in —, Weather still refused to renounce revolutionary violence for "to leave people unprepared to fight the state is to seriously mislead them about the inevitable nature of what lies ahead".

However, the decision to build only an underground group caused the Weather Underground to lose sight of its commitment to mass struggle and made future alliances with the mass movement difficult and tenuous.

By , Weather had recognized this shortcoming and in Prairie Fire detailed a different strategy for the s which demanded both mass and clandestine organizations.

The role of the clandestine organization would be to build the "consciousness of action" and prepare the way for the development of a people's militia.

Concurrently, the role of the mass movement i. Such an alliance would, according to Weather, "help create the 'sea' for the guerrillas to swim in".

The Prairie Fire Collective favored coming out of hiding and establishing an above-ground revolutionary mass movement.

With most WUO members facing the limited criminal charges most charges had been dropped by the government in against them creating an above ground organization was more feasible.

The May 19 Communist Organization continued in hiding as the clandestine organization. A decisive factor in Dohrn's coming out of hiding were her concerns about her children.

The remaining Weather Underground members continued to attack U. The files detailed the targeting of civil rights leaders, labor rights organizations, and left wing groups in general, and included documentation of acts of intimidation and disinformation by the FBI, and attempts to erode public support for those popular movements.

By the end of April, the FBI offices were to terminate all files dealing with leftist groups. Due to the illegal tactics of FBI agents involved with the program, government attorneys requested all weapons- and bomb-related charges be dropped against the Weather Underground.

The most well-publicized of these tactics were the " black-bag jobs ," referring to searches conducted in the homes of relatives and acquaintances of Weatherman.

Mark Felt publicly stated he had ordered break-ins and that individual agents were merely obeying orders and should not be punished for it. Felt also stated that acting Director L.

Patrick Gray had also authorized the break-ins, but Gray denied this. Felt said on the CBS television program Face the Nation that he would probably be a " scapegoat " for the Bureau's work.

While admitting the break-ins were "extralegal," he justified it as protecting the "greater good. Bell , investigated, and on April 10, , a federal grand jury charged Felt, Edward S.

Miller , and Gray with conspiracy to violate the constitutional rights of American citizens by searching their homes without warrants.

The case did not go to trial and was dropped by the government for lack of evidence on December 11, The indictment charged Felt and the others "did unlawfully, willfully, and knowingly combine, conspire, confederate, and agree together and with each other to injure and oppress citizens of the United States who were relatives and acquaintances of the Weatherman fugitives, in the free exercise and enjoyments of certain rights and privileges secured to them by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America.?

Felt and Miller attempted to plea bargain with the government, willing to agree to a misdemeanor guilty plea to conducting searches without warrants—a violation of 18 U.

Roosevelt had authorized the bureau to engage in break-ins while conducting foreign intelligence and counterespionage investigations.

It was Nixon's first courtroom appearance since his resignation in Mitchell , and Richard G. Kleindienst , all of whom said warrantless searches in national security matters were commonplace and not understood to be illegal, but Mitchell and Kleindienst denied they had authorized any of the break-ins at issue in the trial.

The jury returned guilty verdicts on November 6, Cohn wrote it was the "final dirty trick" and that there had been no "personal motive" to their actions.

The Times saluted the convictions, saying that it showed "the case has established that zeal is no excuse for violating the Constitution". Despite the change in their legal status, the Weather Underground remained underground for a few more years.

However, by the organization was disintegrating. The idea was to create an umbrella organization for all radical groups. However, the event turned sour when Hispanic and Black groups accused the Weather Underground and the Prairie Fire Committee of limiting their roles in racial issues.

The conference increased divisions within the Weather Underground. East coast members favored a commitment to violence and challenged commitments of old leaders, Bernardine Dohrn , Bill Ayers , and Jeff Jones.

These older members found they were no longer liable for federal prosecution because of illegal wire taps and the government's unwillingness to reveal sources and methods favored a strategy of inversion where they would be above ground "revolutionary leaders".

Jeremy Varon argues that by the WUO had disbanded. Matthew Steen appeared on the lead segment of CBS' 60 Minutes in and was interviewed by Mike Wallace about the ease of creating fake identification, the first ex-Weatherman interview on national television.

The federal government estimated that only 38 Weathermen had gone underground in , though the estimates varied widely, according to a variety of official and unofficial sources, as between 50 and members.

Most modern sources lean towards a much larger number than the FBI reference. FBI agents Richard J. Gianotti and William D. Reagan lost their cover in November when federal judges needed their testimony to issue warrants for the arrest of Clayton Van Lydegraf and four Weather people.

The arrests were the results of the infiltration. Within two years, many members turned themselves in after taking advantage of President Jimmy Carter 's amnesty for draft dodgers.

Charges were dropped for Ayers. Some members remained underground and joined splinter radical groups. The robbery was violent, resulting in the deaths of three people including Waverly Brown, the first black police officer on the Nyack police force.

Boudin, Clark, and Gilbert were found guilty and sentenced to lengthy terms in prison. Media reports listed them as former Weatherman Underground members [] considered the "last gasps" of the Weather Underground.

The Weather Underground members involved in the May 19th Communist Organization alliance with the Black Liberation Army continued in a series of jail breaks, armed robberies and bombings until most members were finally arrested in and sentenced as part of the Brinks robbery and the Resistance Conspiracy case.

Throughout the underground years, the Weather Underground members worked closely with their counterparts in other organizations, including Jane Alpert, to bring attention their further actions to the press.

She helped Weatherman pursue their main goal of overthrowing the U. Most former Weathermen have successfully re-integrated into mainstream society, without necessarily repudiating their original intent.

The FBI, in a news story titled "Byte out of History" published on its website, refers to the organization as having been a "domestic terrorist group" that is no longer an active concern.

In his book about his Weatherman experiences, Bill Ayers stated his objection to describing the WUO as terrorist. Terrorists destroy randomly, while our actions bore, we hoped, the precise stamp of a cut diamond.

Terrorists intimidate, while we aimed only to educate. No, we're not terrorists. Its war against property by definition means that the WUO was not a terrorist organization.

The late s and early s were tumultuous times, with the FBI attributing bombings in just to "civil unrest" by radical groups.

The observation that Weather Underground never attacked or harmed people, and only targeted property, is criticized by some who point to the bombs which caused the Greenwich Village townhouse explosion , which could have been used to harm people if they hadn't exploded prematurely.

On the morning of March 6, , three of my comrades were building pipe bombs packed with dynamite and nails, destined for a dance of non-commissioned officers and their dates at Fort Dix, N.

Still trying to "bring the war home", their bombs were crude mirrors of the anti-personnel weapons the U.

But our goal is a majority movement to end war and global injustice. I believe such a thing is possible in this country. From my own experience I know that the American people see no distinction between violence against property and violence against human beings.

Political violence is a category which does not exist: That's a very bad position to put yourself into.

After the Townhouse, when the Weather Underground turned to bombing symbolic targets like empty corporate offices, it made us no less isolated. As self-expression violence can make perfect sense; as political activity to build a movement, none at all.

Prompted in part by claims made by informants working for the FBI within the Weather Underground, grand juries were convened in and to investigate if Weather Underground was responsible for the San Francisco Police Department Park Station bombing , in which one officer was fatally wounded, one maimed and eight more wounded by shrapnel from a pipe bomb.

Ultimately, it was concluded that members of the Black Liberation Army, whom WUO members affiliated with while underground, were responsible for not only this action, but also the bombing of another police precinct in San Francisco, as well as bombing the Catholic Church funeral services of the police officer killed in the Park Precinct bombing in the early summer of In Bill Ayers was quoted in a New York Times interview saying "I don't regret setting bombs", [] but has since claimed he was misquoted.

We did carry out symbolic acts of extreme vandalism directed at monuments to war and racism, and the attacks on property, never on people, were meant to respect human life and convey outrage and determination to end the Vietnam war The responsibility for the risks we posed to others in some of our most extreme actions in those underground years never leaves my thoughts for long.

The antiwar movement in all its commitment, all its sacrifice and determination, could not stop the violence unleashed against Vietnam.

And therein lies cause for real regret. Mark Rudd, now a teacher of mathematics at Central New Mexico Community College , has said he doesn't speak publicly about his experiences because he has "mixed feelings, guilt and shame These are things I am not proud of, and I find it hard to speak publicly about them and to tease out what was right from what was wrong.

I think that part of the Weatherman phenomenon that was right was our understanding of what the position of the United States is in the world.

It was this knowledge that we just couldn't handle; it was too big. We didn't know what to do. In a way I still don't know what to do with this knowledge.

I don't know what needs to be done now, and it's still eating away at me just as it did 30 years ago. Their official site reads:. We oppose oppression in all its forms including racism , sexism , homophobia , classism and imperialism.

We demand liberation and justice for all peoples. We recognize that we live in a capitalist system that favors a select few and oppresses the majority.

This system cannot be reformed or voted out of office because reforms and elections do not challenge the fundamental causes of injustice.

Terence McDonagh is a drug- and gambling-addled detective in post-Katrina New Orleans investigating the killing of five Senegalese immigrants.

Dave Spritz is a local weatherman in his home town of Chicago, where his career is going well while his personal life -- his relationship with his perfectionist writer father, his neurotic ex-wife, and his now-separated children -- is spiraling downward.

Despite being both loathed and loved by the local masses, Dave is a guy who doesn't seem to have it all together, and in this film, he begins to feel it.

An attractive job offer presents Dave with a major question: When I first saw the advertisements for "The Weather Man", it seemed like the movie was going to be another formulaic, feel good Hollywood redemption tale.

In reality, it is a dark, scathing satire of American values. The marketing likely scared away a lot of people who would enjoy the film, while attracting an audience who was presented with something unexpected and perhaps uncomfortable.

The comedy is quite raunchy, the tone is bleak, and the story is anything but formulaic, throwing industry conventions right out the window, which leads to a film that's more believable than most.

David Spritz is a man whose life has become the ultimate exercise in futility. Each day, he wakes up and goes to a job that, despite paying a handsome salary, is entirely unfulfilling.

His relationship with his ex-wife is strained, his relationship with his children distant. To make things worse, his Pulitzer Prize winning father seems to be disappointed in what David has done with his life.

In real life, progress in one's personal life is generally made in baby steps. Usually, people don't undergo a drastic transformation over the course of several months.

Keep track of everything you watch; tell your friends. It took its name from Bob Dylan 's lyric, "You don't need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows", from the song " Subterranean Homesick Blues " This founding document called for a "white fighting force" to be allied with the "Black Liberation Movement" and other radical movements [5] to achieve "the destruction of U.

The Weathermen began to disintegrate after the United States reached a peace accord in Vietnam in , [7] after which the New Left declined in influence.

By , the organization was defunct. The Weathermen emerged from the campus-based opposition to United States involvement in the Vietnam War and from the civil rights movement of the s.

This project was aimed at creating an interracial movement of the poor that would mobilize for full and fair employment or guaranteed annual income and political rights for poverty class Americans.

Their goal was to create a more democratic society "which guarantees political freedom, economic and physical security, abundant education, and incentives for wide cultural variety".

While the initial phase of the SDS involved campus organizing, phase two involved community organizing. These experiences led some SDS members to conclude that deep social change would not happen through community organizing and electoral politics, and that more radical and disruptive tactics were needed.

RYM promoted the philosophy that young workers possessed the potential to be a revolutionary force to overthrow capitalism, if not by themselves then by transmitting radical ideas to the working class.

Klonsky's document reflected the philosophy of the National Office and was eventually adopted as official SDS doctrine.

During the summer of , the National Office began to split. A group led by Klonsky became known as RYM II, and the other side, RYM I, was led by Dohrn and endorsed more aggressive tactics such as direct action , as some members felt that years of nonviolent resistance had done little or nothing to stop the Vietnam War.

The police killing of Panther Fred Hampton prompted the Weatherman to issue a declaration of war upon the United States government. We petitioned, we demonstrated, we sat in.

I was willing to get hit over the head, I did; I was willing to go to prison, I did. To me, it was a question of what had to be done to stop the much greater violence that was going on.

At an SDS convention in Chicago on June 18, , the National Office attempted to persuade unaffiliated delegates not to endorse a takeover of SDS by Progressive Labor who had packed the convention with their supporters.

The latter document outlined the position of the group that would become the Weathermen. The document called for creating a clandestine revolutionary party.

The most important task for us toward making the revolution, and the work our collectives should engage in, is the creation of a mass revolutionary movement, without which a clandestine revolutionary party will be impossible.

A revolutionary mass movement is different from the traditional revisionist mass base of "sympathizers". Rather it is akin to the Red Guard in China, based on the full participation and involvement of masses of people in the practice of making revolution; a movement with a full willingness to participate in the violent and illegal struggle.

At this convention the Weatherman faction of the Students for a Democratic Society, planned for October 8—11, as a "National Action" built around John Jacobs' slogan, "bring the war home".

As part of the "National Action Staff", Jacobs was an integral part of the planning for what quickly came to be called "Four Days of Rage".

Weatherman would shove the war down their dumb, fascist throats and show them, while we were at it, how much better we were than them, both tactically and strategically, as a people.

In an all-out civil war over Vietnam and other fascist U. And we were going to kick ass. In July , 30 members of Weatherman leadership traveled to Cuba and met with North Vietnamese representatives to gain from their revolutionary experience.

The North Vietnamese requested armed political action in order to stop the U. Subsequently, they accepted funding, training, recommendations on tactics and slogans from Cuba, and perhaps explosives as well.

The meeting, dubbed the "War Council" by the people who attended, adopted Jacobs' call for violent revolution. In the evening, the groups reconvened for a mass "wargasm"—practicing karate , engaging in physical exercise, singing songs, and listening to speeches.

The War Council ended with a major speech by John Jacobs. Jacobs condemned the "pacifism" of white middle-class American youth, a belief which he claimed they held because they were insulated from the violence which afflicted blacks and the poor.

He predicted a successful revolution, and declared that youth were moving away from passivity and apathy and toward a new high-energy culture of "repersonalization" brought about by drugs, sex, and armed revolution.

We are the incubation of your mother's nightmare. Two major decisions came out of the War Council. The first was to go underground, and to begin a violent, armed struggle against the state without attempting to organize or mobilize a broad swath of the public.

The Weather Underground hoped to create underground collectives in major cities throughout the country. The Weatherman national leadership agreed, as did the New York City collective.

The second major decision was the dissolution of SDS. Thereafter, any leaflet, label, or logo bearing the name "Students for a Democratic Society" SDS was in fact the views and politics of Weatherman, not of the slate elected by Progressive Labor.

The group, while small, was able to commandeer the mantle of SDS and all of its membership lists, but with Weatherman in charge there was little or no support from local branches or members of the organization, [22] [23] and local chapters soon disbanded.

At the War Council, the Weathermen had decided to close the SDS National Office, ending the major campus-based organization of the s which at its peak was a mass organization with , members.

The thesis of Weatherman theory, as expounded in its founding document, You Don't Need a Weatherman to Know Which Way the Wind Blows , was that "the main struggle going on in the world today is between U.

In Weatherman theory "oppressed peoples" are the creators of the wealth of empire, "and it is to them that it belongs. The Vietnamese and other third world countries, as well as third world people within the United States play a vanguard role.

They "set the terms for class struggle in America The theoretical basis of the Revolutionary Youth Movement was an insight that most of the American population, including both students and the supposed "middle class," comprised, due to their relationship to the instruments of production, the working class , [30] thus the organizational basis of the SDS, which had begun in the elite colleges and had been extended to public institutions as the organization grew could be extended to youth as a whole including students, those serving in the military, and the unemployed.

Students could be viewed as workers gaining skills prior to employment. This contrasted to the Progressive Labor view which viewed students and workers as being in separate categories which could ally, but should not jointly organize.

FBI analysis of the travel history of the founders and initial followers of the organization emphasized contacts with foreign governments, particularly the Cuban and North Vietnamese and their influence on the ideology of the organization.

Participation in the Venceremos Brigade , a program which involved US students volunteering to work in the sugar harvest in Cuba, is highlighted as a common factor in the background of the founders of the Weather Underground, with China a secondary influence.

Terry Robbins took the organization's name from the lyrics of the Bob Dylan song " Subterranean Homesick Blues ," [34] which featured the lyrics "You don't need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows.

By using this title the Weathermen meant, partially, to appeal to the segment of US youth inspired to action for social justice by Dylan's songs.

The Weatherman group had long held that militancy was becoming more important than nonviolent forms of anti-war action, and that university-campus-based demonstrations needed to be punctuated with more dramatic actions, which had the potential to interfere with the US military and internal security apparatus.

The belief was that these types of urban guerrilla actions would act as a catalyst for the coming revolution. Many international events indeed seemed to support the Weathermen's overall assertion that worldwide revolution was imminent, such as the tumultuous Cultural Revolution in China; the student revolts in France , Mexico City and elsewhere; the Prague Spring ; the Northern Ireland Civil Rights Association ; the emergence of the Tupamaros organization in Uruguay ; the emergence of the Guinea-Bissauan Revolution and similar Marxist -led independence movements throughout Africa; and within the United States, the prominence of the Black Panther Party, together with a series of "ghetto rebellions" throughout poor black neighborhoods across the country.

We felt that doing nothing in a period of repressive violence is itself a form of violence. That's really the part that I think is the hardest for people to understand.

If you sit in your house, live your white life and go to your white job, and allow the country that you live in to murder people and to commit genocide , and you sit there and you don't do anything about it, that's violence.

The Weathermen were outspoken critics of the concepts that later came to be known as " white privilege " described as white-skin privilege and identity politics.

They must either fight on the side of the oppressed, or be on the side of the oppressor. Weather maintained that their stance differed from the rest of the movement at the time in the sense that they predicated their critiques on the notion that they were engaged in "an anti-imperialist, anti-racist struggle".

Weather warned that other political theories, including those organizing around class interests or youth interests, were "bound to lead in a racist and chauvinist direction".

Members of Weather further contended that efforts at "organizing whites against their own perceived oppression" were "attempts by whites to carve out even more privilege than they already derive from the imperialist nexus".

As historian Dan Berger writes, Weather raised the question "what does it means to be a white person opposing racism and imperialism?

Shortly after its formation as an independent group, Weatherman created a central committee, the Weather Bureau, which assigned its cadres to a series of collectives in major cities.

The collectives set up under the Weather Bureau drew their design from Che Guevara 's foco theory, which focused on the building of small, semi-autonomous cells guided by a central leadership.

To try to turn their members into hardened revolutionaries and to promote solidarity and cohesion, members of collectives engaged in intensive criticism sessions which attempted to reconcile their prior and current activities to Weathermen doctrine.

These "criticism self-criticism" sessions also called "CSC" or "Weatherfries" were the most distressing part of life in the collective. Derived from Maoist techniques, it was intended to root out racist, individualist and chauvinist tendencies within group members.

At its most intense, members would be berated for up to a dozen or more hours non-stop about their flaws.

It was intended to make group members believe that they were, deep down, white supremacists by subjecting them to constant criticism to break them down.

The sessions were used to ridicule and bully those who didn't agree with the party line and force them into acceptance.

However, the sessions were also successful at purging potential informants from the Weathermen's ranks, making them crucial to the Weathermen's survival as an underground organization.

The Weathermen were also determined to destroy "bourgeois individualism" amongst members that would potentially interfere with their commitment to both the Weathermen and the goal of revolution.

Personal property was either renounced or given to the collective, with income being used to purchase the needs of the group and members enduring Spartan living conditions.

Conventional comforts were forbidden and the leadership was exalted, giving them immense power over their subordinates in some collectives the leadership could even dictate personal decisions such as where one went.

Martial arts were practiced and occasional direct actions were engaged in. Critical of monogamy, they launched a "smash monogamy" campaign, in which couples whose affection was deemed unacceptably possessive, counterrevolutionary or even selfish were to be split apart; collectives underwent forced rotation of sex partners including allegations that some male leaders rotated women between collectives in order to sleep with them and in some cases engaged in sexual orgies.

Life in the collectives could be particularly hard for women, who made up about half the members.

Their political awakening had included a growing awareness of sexism, yet they often found that men took the lead in political activities and discussion, with women often engaging in domestic work, as well as finding themselves confined to second-tier leadership roles.

Certain feminist political beliefs had to be disavowed or muted and the women had to prove, regardless of prior activist credentials, that they were as capable as men in engaging in political action as part of "women's cadres", which were felt to be driven by coerced machismo and failed to promote genuine solidarity amongst the women.

While the Weathermen's sexual politics did allow women to assert desire and explore relationships with each other, it also made them vulnerable to sexual exploitation.

Weather used various means by which to recruit new members and set into motion a nationwide revolt against the government. Weather members aimed to mobilize people into action against the established leaders of the nation and the patterns of injustice which existed in America and abroad due to America's presence overseas.

They also aimed to convince people to resist reliance upon their given privilege and to rebel and take arms if necessary.

According to Weatherman, if people tolerated the unjust actions of the state, they became complicit in those actions.

The Politics of Revolutionary Anti-Imperialism," Weatherman explained that their intention was to encourage the people and provoke leaps in confidence and consciousness in an attempt to stir the imagination, organize the masses, and join in the people's day-to-day struggles in every way possible.

In the year , over a third of America's population was under 18 years of age. The number of young citizens set the stage for a widespread revolt against perceived structures of racism, sexism, and classism, the violence of the Vietnam War and America's interventions abroad.

At college campuses throughout the country, anger against "the Establishment's" practices prompted both peaceful and violent protest.

The younger members of the working class became the focus of the organizing effort because they felt the oppression strongly in regards to the military draft, low-wage jobs, and schooling.

Schools became a common place of recruitment for the movement. In direct actions, dubbed Jailbreaks , Weather members invaded educational institutions as a means by which to recruit high school and college students.

The motivation of these jailbreaks was the organization's belief that school was where the youth were oppressed by the system and where they learned to tolerate society's faults instead of rise against them.

According to "Prairie Fire", young people are channeled, coerced, misled, miseducated, misused in the school setting. It is in schools that the youth of the nation become alienated from the authentic processes of learning about the world.

Factions of the Weatherman organization began recruiting members by applying their own strategies. Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz , a member of the radical women's liberation group Cell 16 spoke about her personal recruitment agenda saying that she wanted their group to go out in every corner of the country and tell women the truth, recruit the local people, poor and working-class people, in order to build a new society [55].

Berger explains the controversy surrounding recruitment strategies saying, "As an organizing strategy it was less than successful: According to Dan Berger a relatively sophisticated program of armed propaganda was adopted.

This consisted of a series of bombings of government and corporate targets in retaliation for specific imperialist and oppressive acts.

Small, well-constructed time bombs were used, generally in vents in restrooms, which exploded at times the spaces were empty. Shortly before the Days of Rage demonstrations on October 6, , [61] the Weatherman planted a bomb that blew up a statue in Chicago built to commemorate police casualties incurred in the Haymarket Riot.
