“There is a danger; don’t fall in love with yourselves.” – zizek at ows

There is a danger; don’t fall in love with yourselves. We have a nice time here, but remember, 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 dont want you to remember these days like you know “oh we were young it was beautiful”
remember that our basic message is “we are allowed to think about alternatives; the bull is broken; we do not live in the best possible way; there is a long world ahead; there are truly difficult questions that face us: what systems can replace capitalism? What new leaders do we want?
… beware of false friends who are alreayd trying to dilute this process. they will try to make this into a harmless moral protest, a decaffeinated protest.
Thoughts (ignoring barfy ‘leader’ comment):
1. MAYBE WE WONT RETURN TO NORMAL LIFE/ WHAT IS NORMAL LIFE (we allow ourselves a little fancy sometimes)
2. Is the problem really imagination? Imagining a different system? cuz it sure seems like the biggest issue is destroying the reproduction of the global capitalist system. Oh wait, are those the same thing?
Serious question. srsly
