Dissipation

Published: October 27, 2010, Author: JayTaber

Keeping focused on major spectacles of global issues or national plebiscites channels concerned citizens into ineffective venues where their energies can be dissipated without posing a threat to the established order. When people become involved in political activities where they live, there is always the chance they might change things, and set an example of independence that could be replicated elsewhere. Nipping these autonomous zones in the bud, be it in Chiapas or Clayoquot, is the role of corporate political parties, corporate media, and other anti-democratic institutions.
