A political assessment of the (post-) 2011 horizontal movements | P2P Foundation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

after 2011 horizontality must be criticized and overcome, clearly and unambiguously — and not just in a Hegelian sense. Secondly, the situation is probably ripe enough to attempt once again that most political of passages: the seizure of power. We have understood the question of power for too long in an excessively negative manner. Now we can reinterpret the question of power in terms of multitudes, in terms of absolute democracy — that is to say, in terms of a democracy that goes beyond canonical institutional forms such as monarchy, aristocracy and “democracy.” I believe that today the problem of democracy is best formulated and addressed in terms of the multitude

Global Systemic Chaos and Transitions Already Underway - Scoop.co.nz | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Geopolitics helps us understand the world in which we live, especially in turbulent times like these, characterized by global instability with its string of changes and permanent oscillations.
