graeber make it diff law
‘the ultimate hidden truth of the world is that it is something we make and could just as easily make differently‘ – david graeber
what at the time might have seemed the fantasy of an eccentric pamphleteer soon became the charter for a sporadic, uncertain, but apparently permanent alliance that endures to this day..
rather.. charter from the get go.. huge.. because next para is g’s huge.. and by these claims/words/ie’s.. diff is just same song
if artistic avant gardes and social revolutionaries have felt a peculiar affinity for one another ever since, borrowing each other’s languages/ideas.. it appears to have been insofar as both have remained committed to the ideas that the ultimate, hidden truth of the world is that it is something we make, and could just as easily make differently
in this sense, a phrase like ‘all power to the imagination’ expresses the very quintessence of the left
except.. not all.. so not legit imagination.. so not legit freedom
can’t be left/right.. et al.. has to be all of us or it won’t work
perhaps leftist sensibility expressed in purest form in words of marxist john holloway who wanted to title a book ‘stop making capitalism’.. capitalism he noted, is not something imposed on us by some outside force.. it only exists because every day we wake up and continue to produce it.. if we woke up one morning and all collectively decided to produce something else.. then we wouldn’t have capitalism anymore..
yeah.. let’s do that.. everyday.. (but again.. that’s something in all of us.. not just leftist thinking)
ie: cure ios city
This is the ultimate revolutionary question: what are the conditions that would have to exist to enable us to do this—to just wake up and imagine and produce something else?
huge huge huge
a nother way – where there’s a mechanism in place to handle the initial chaos.. to shorten the lag time.. between intention and action.. so we don’t fall back into the “comfort/laziness” of bureaucracy/rules/supposed-to‘s. getting the sync of luxury for all.. to undo our hierarchical listening
ie: cure ios city with 2 convers as infra
