274. From Mountain Movers To Lazy Losers-Fireworks
Do you remember the summer heat and the way we used to be? Dreamed about the scenery, the place we’ll never see. This was a lost cause. You’re a lost cause. This was your family. And you lost the will to carry on so we’re moving on without you now. Live like a legend. Die young and live forever. But we won’t die together.
“They tell you are we are dreamers. The true dreamers are those who think things can go on indefinitely the way they are. We are not dreamers. We are awakening from a dream which is tuning into a nightmare. We are not destroying anything. We are only witnessing how the system is destroying itself...Carnivals come cheap. What matters is the day after, when we will have to return to normal life. Will there be any changes then? I don't want you to remember these days you know, like 'oh, we were young, it was beautiful.' Remember that our basic message is 'We are allowed to think about alternatives'... ”—
Philosopher and critical theorist Slavoj Žižek addressing the Occupy Wall Street protesters this Sunday at Liberty Plaza in New York City.
“We are allowed to think about alternatives…” Consider this every single time a demonstration is arrested or pepper-sprayed. Thinking about alternatives, asking for alternatives, considering alternatives, etc… all this seems to be very intimidating to those in power.
Žižek speaks the truth when he proclaims that we are watching the system destroy itself. We are. Late capitalism is a snake eating its own tail.
