We were in 1972 and Magister talked in terms of a list of needs which “the system” didn’t meet.

‘System’ and ‘anti-system’ were concepts belonging to the roaring 70s ideology. I now consider them mostly misleading.

In any case these unfulfilled needs contributed to the general unhappiness and consequent students’ revolt, Magister argued.

It was an idea we could easily grasp and which provided an explanation for our frustrations. It was employed by Magister in order to subsequently bring us to more serious reflections. I lost this list and in any case it was somewhat different from Bernazza’s list.
