I started last night a 1,000-page biography of Rosa Luxemburg that I first read a half century ago. The author reports that Rosa’s artistic tastes were highbrow conventional. She didn’t go for popular-proletarian literature and music. Still, I believe that if Rosa attended this concert, she would — despite herself — be singing along with the rest of us.
Though the road be rough and rocky,
And the hills be steep and high,
We can sing as we go marching,
And we’ll win that one big union by and by.
