By revolution I mean revolution, I tend to share Orwell's view that they have all been failures, I'm not even as quick to qualify it with the statement "but not all the same sort of failure" as Orwell was.
Define worse Magic, there's been more blood shed, sure, more tyranny, greater betrayal of the great, grand, couldnt fault it dream which sparked it all, greater counter revolutions but purely personally as revolutions go its the one I like the least and shrink from any support of. Its effects have been pretty insidious.
Marx satirised revolution as much as he supported the idea, he said the French had fought for liberty, egalite, fraternite but got infantry, cavalry and artillary in some comment on bonapartism. Its pretty much my view too.
Just for clarifications sake I dont regard womens liberation or reproductive rights under the same heading as sexual revolution, by that I understand pornography, commodification of sex, free love for cash, casualisation of relationships and pretty much the full gumit of the most good, the true, the beautiful side of life subjected to Marx's "all that is solid melts into air".
Man, late again, keep logging on here late when I cant sleep and it probably doesnt help any Here man, sorry for not responding to your earlier post yet, I'll try and get around to it, its similar to the time I pestered you to post about psychodynamics and socio-biology vs. memetics in psychology. I'm also glutting the thread and the forum and that's a bit shit too.
