Η επανάσταση της αποχής…

Και μετά από αυτό το επιμορφωτικό διάλειμμα, μπορείτε να συνεχίσετε την επανάσταση από τον καναπέ σας!

Because revolution in our culture has always represented an attack on hierarchy, it has always meant upheaval – literally a heaving up from below. But upheaval has no role to play in moving beyond civilization. If the plane is in trouble, you don’t shoot the pilot, you grab a parachute and jump. To overthrow hierarchy is pointless, we just want to leave it behind.

As everyone knows (especially revolutionaries), hierarchy maintains formidable defenses against attack from the lower orders. It has none, however, against abandonment. This is in part because it can imagine revolution, but it can’t imagine abandonment, it couldn’t defend against it, because abandonment isn’t an attack, it’s just a discontinuance of support.

But won’t the powers that be try to prevent people from doing nothing? I can imagine them trying (but I honestly need help imagining them succeeding).
