    Theory: a crucial weapon in our arsenal

    Philosophical theory has a bad rep as a tedious mental wank-off, as distant from the chaotic happenings of the real world as classical ballet is from punk rock. Many consider it best left in the classroom along with chewed-up gum under desks and curiously slow clocks. That’s all true, if you’re talking about the philosophy of the ruling class. It’s also true for ideas isolated in a cage of academia, unconnected to practice.

    But revolutionary theory is our greatest weapon, infinitely more important than the gun. Without it, no one can know where to point the gun, or when.

    Ask yourself this: if you aren’t in charge of the ideas that guide your life, who is?

    Exactly.

    I’d say he fits in quite nicely in today’s world, there’s plenty of people that are not willing to allow room for the ideas and lifestyles and beliefs of others around them. Have you heard of Syria? Iraq, Iran, or maybe Sudan, Lebanon, Rwanda, Uganda? The Middle East, and African Nations are well known examples of this type of thought, but then again, our own back yard is also filled with such closed mindedness. We get enraged over political debates because we don’t agree with what the other candidate said, we can’t just say “well, that’s what he believes, it’s not what I believe, but that’s okay!”

    The question is do you rule your ideology or does it rule you? For that guy his ideology rules him. No exceptions.

    Stephanie, I went through all of this with the French New Left forty years ago. Are we going to go through all this jawboning all over again, just to arrive exhausted at impotence again? You’re taking this train why?
