People Power

Headed to Madison atm to protest Scott Walker’s assault on public workers. Quick point though — the right’s assault is on the concept of publicality itself — their idea, utopia even, is one in which corporations hand down the terms always already. Egypt was a setback, Bahrain, Tunisia, Libya, can be blamed on brown people. Individuals asserting their rights is not okay. Revolutions must be monitored and controlled — the people might fuck up and assert their own rights. And if that, god help us.
