Interview with Paul N. Ylvisaker

The people who are rebelling, were they the poorest people?


I think if you took a look at who broke the windows in the first round, who threw the first brick, it would be mostly poor adolescents, but also, you can't quite determine whether they're also looking for excitement. But if you get caught in looking for who through the first brick, and for what immediate reason, you lose sight of where the basic causes and angers are and how to deal with them. You can't get preoccupied with the violence.
