#Revolution Not #Reform: Moral Courage, Redefining Progress and the Myth of Social Democracy

by William Hawes 2017 10

The revolution will only come as a result of inner, mental transformation, as Krishnamurti foretold. Political movements may urge people towards an outward revolution of the economic structure, but ultimately, it is up to each one of us as individuals to awaken from the slumber that imperialism and capitalism has imposed on us.

#Capitalism is the root cause of over-consumption, militarism, racism, imperialism. Any reform based on social democracy is bound to fail, because it refuses to confront the structural causes of a crumbling society: capital and its accumulation to the few at the expense of the many. Capitalism, not just simply neoliberalism, must be ripped up by the roots.

If you need to wait, make the act of waiting revolutionary and your not longer waiting, but being part of the beginning.
Hopefully a better beginning.

That's a picture of a random highway in #catalonia, with ppl playing chess.

#generalstrike, to interupt the routine daylife, and to shut down #capitalism and all what belongs to least for some time.
After every collective wakeup call, nothing remains the same. ppl carry a new world within, time to let it be born.
