"It’s a traditional thing, this divisive infiltration. What I’m saying is that the confusion sown by the egocentric, elitist revolutionaries is the very same confusion that allows the police to bring in their double-agents. When you have a big tough guy with a loud voice, shouting everyone else down, claiming to be more revolutionary than them, and intimidating the middle-class yippies and yuppies, bohemians, kids, or poets — all who want to talk also, and may even want to have a dialogue with the community — that chaos is where paranoia gets in, and when paranoia sets in, that’s where the police enter, into that breach, and they begin to create even more confusion, and to split one group from another. Divide and conquer."

- Allen Ginsberg comments (1988) on the “Bring the War Back Home” anti-Vietnam movement
