Quote
"A revolution is not a painless march to the gates of freedom and justice. It is a struggle between rage and hope, between the temptation to destroy and the desire to build. Its temperament is desperate. It is a tormented response to the past, to all that has happened, the recalled and unrecalled injustices—for the memory of a revolution reaches much further back than the memory of its protagonists."

Elder IS a verb.

Transitive or intransitive?

Transitive.

Okay then, how does one elder something?

To elder someone is to, while holding the position of Elder, give someone a gentle talking-to about an aspect of their behaviour which is felt to be disruptive to the Meeting (or damaging to their own well-being)

To elder a meeting is to act as Elder.
