the revolution will be televised


that's a very aesthetically pleasing clip, the smoke and the flares etc pastel shades
the violence somewhat marrs the effect

i've long wondered if it was just me and my media bubble or if there'd really been more dissent in the last few years. i guess this graph answers that question:

In this article we argue that what we have in fact witnessed since 2008 is a continuous increase of what the Iranian-American sociologist Asef Bayat has described as “non-movements”, namely, “the collective action of dispersed and unorganized actors”.19 These non-movements are not in any sense revolutionary in themselves. They are closer to what Camatte has recently called “passive revolts”: subjective expressions of the objective disorder of our times.20 They reflect above all the growing delegitimization of politics in a context of ongoing stagnation and austerity. It is the combination of steadily rising non-movements involving unprecedented numbers of people, with a decline in democratic legitimacy, that allows us to describe the trend of our era as the production of revolutionaries without a revolution.



Who loves ya, baby?
I thought you were linking that article Third often does for a sec, but that's Forward, Barbarians!
