mike davis (1946-2022)

Lots of obituaries and tributes to Mike Davis last week, but I think this is a beautiful one – and in his own words:

‘Stop and give a hitchhiking family a ride. Never cross a picket line, even when your family can’t pay the rent. Share your last cigarette with a stranger. Steal milk when your kids have none and then give half to the little kids next door (this is what my own mother did repeatedly in 1936). Listen carefully to the quiet, profound people who have lost everything but their dignity. Cultivate the generosity of the “we.”’

From his 2012 pamphlet Be Realistic: Demand the Impossible
